The top two women and top three men from that event will qualify to represent their country at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London.

Daily tickets are on sale now. They are $5 on Thursday (when play is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and $10 for Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Tickets can be purchased online or at the Cary Arts Center Box Office. There also could be tickets available on site at the Bond Park Community Center beginning with the start of the competition.
