All divisions (age and skill level) will have multiple pools available across different blocks allowing you to choose the time slot that works best for you and be able to participate in other activities throughout the day. What this means is that your entire pool will be played within a 4.5-hour block, and you will know exactly when you start and end.
Each tournament has a 3-game guarantee - three pool play games with top teams advancing to bracket play matches on Sunday. Pool play will consist of 2 pools (ex: A and B) with 3 teams in each pool. Each team will play the other 2 teams in their pool then cross-play with the other pool based on their record (ties will be broken with point differential).
For example, the highest seed in pool A after the first two games is designated A1, the second team A2, and the lowest seed A3. Therefore, the third pool play games would be A1 vs B2, B1 vs A2, and A3 vs B3. The winners of A1 vs B2 and B1 vs A2 will advance to Championship Sunday.
Bracket play is a single elimination format where a team could play up to 4 additional matches on Sunday per division.
Style of Play:
Pool-play will be one game rally scoring to 21, win by 2.
Bracket-play will be best 2/3 rally scoring to 15, win by 2.
1st and 2nd place will receive individual awards. Divisions with a larger number of participants may receive awards for places 1-3rd.
