Singles, doubles and side events for Melee were hosted. The tournament was held at the Summit gaming house, a private residence, and so is not open to the general public.

Crews and Smash Olympics
At the very beginning of Smash Summit 2, 4 captains who were previously chosen by vote (Hungrybox, Mango, Armada, and Westballz) formed crews by picking smashers through a snake draft process.
Each crew would gain points when their members won or placed high enough at the verious side events such as the Shared Controller Tournament and the Iron Man Challenge. The team with the most points at the end would win the Smash Olympics and earn $750 to share among themselves.
