The main Utah Pokkén Weekly! Players of all skill levels welcome! 

We are a friendly and welcoming scene with players from all across the Salt Lake valley. We have a wide age range of players, from mid-teens to mid-twenties.
The TO for the event is Bryce Ellsworth (bellsworth46). He has years of experience TOing tournaments and is the current head of the Pokkén scene.

The venue is also the home of the TO, giving the tournaments a very relaxed atmosphere.
