NADO Member Player Rewards Info
There are several components in the NADO Member Player Rewards Program. This section will briefly discuss them. You can find detailed information elsewhere on this site.
LOCAL LEAGUE PLAYER REWARDS:
- The current estimated amount of local league player rewards prize money among participating franchisees is $500,000. The franchisee’s size and participation level will determine their exact share.
- Players will earn points by competing in local leagues, optional NADO remote leagues, and Member Player Rewards (MPR) tournaments hosted at local participating venues.
- Local 101 Point Club: This is the first portion of the Local Player Rewards Program. This first milestone is relatively easy to achieve and there are multiple ways for a player to reach the 101-point milestone.
- Local Bonus Pool Payouts: This is a point race that allows a higher cash prize to be paid to dedicated players and incorporates both participation and skill-based achievements.
- Optional Post Season Finale: A post season finale tournament or series of tournaments is a great way to add additional excitement to the program. A Franchisee may elect to run their own post season finale event. There are several formats that can be used by a franchisee to run a post season finale event and NADO will assist the franchisee in helping develop one. Optionally the franchisee could use the NADO Continental Finale event as a way to earn local post season points.
- NADO will administer continental remote league play.
- Players will earn reward points that will count toward both the Local League Player Rewards Program and the NADO Finale Player Rewards Program for NADO-managed remote league play as well as remote league play managed by a franchisee.
- NADO will administer remote tournaments for various types of prizes. In addition to normal cash prizes there will be unique travel prize events as well.
NADO POINTS RACE:
- The program has NADO Points Race Bonus Pools like the Local Bonus Pool but with $100,000 in 4 separate bonus pools: 2 Men’s Divisions and 2 Women’s Divisions.
- These NADO Bonus Pools create the post season excitement and are what really drives participation for players of all skill levels.
- The top prizes in the NADO Points Race are currently: Men’s Division A = $8,000; Men’s Division B = $5,300; Women’s Division A = $8,000; and Women’s Division B = $4,000.
NADO TON 80 CLUB:
- Just like the local 101 Club there is a NADO Ton 80 Club that will have $30,000 in this pool of money. All players that reach the 180-point milestone will share in the pool of money based on their end of season point totals.
- This effectively rewards dedicated players, regardless of skill level, with guaranteed travel funds when attending the annual NADO Continental Finale Tournament.
- This helps enable more players to receive larger NADO rewards money.
NADO ANNUAL CONTINENTAL FINALE TOURNAMENT:
- NADO UNCAPPED POINTS LEADER INVITATIONAL
- This invitational event is for players that continue to participate in league programs through additional local and NADO league and tournament play in excess of the established NADO point caps.
- The top 96 men and 48 women will be eligible to compete in an exclusive event that is open by invitation only. In 2022-2023 $7,500 was awarded for this event. These numbers may be expanded should this pool of players exceed expectations.
- NADO FRIDAY SINGLES SHOWCASE
- Separate Men’s and Women’s blind draws with players divided into divisions based on skill level. $3,560.00 was awarded for our first Singles event.
- NADO FRIDAY NIGHT EXTREME SANCTIONED BAR TOURNAMENT
- Separate Men’s and Women’s blind draws with players divided into divisions based on skill level. In 2022-2023 $17,540 was awarded for this event. These numbers may be expanded should this pool of players exceed expectations. Players will earn 5 points for participation in this event.
- NADO SATURDAY BRING YOUR TEAM DOUBLES AND TRIPLES
- These events are also divided into divisions based on skill levels. Teams do not have to come from the same franchisee. In 2022-2023 $25,200 was awarded for the triples event and $26,320 was awarded for the doubles event. These numbers may be expanded should this pool of players exceed expectations. Players will earn 5 points for participation per each of these events.
- NADO SUNDAY FINALE POINTS SHOOTOUT
- In 2022-2023, we had 4 separate divisions based on gender and skill level. These numbers may be expanded should this pool of players exceed expectations.
- In 2022-2023, $26,000 was awarded at this event. In addition, players earn bonus points based on their finishing positions in these events. These bonus points will help determine each player’s final standings toward the estimated $100,000 NADO Bonus Pools.
Hope to see you at the next Continental Finale!
