Tournament Details: 

  • We will offer a round robin schedule. That means in pool play you will play each team in your bracket in a game to 15, win by 2. The top four teams will advance to medal match play and those games will be best of 2 out of 3 games to 11, win by 2.  Advancement to the medal round will be based on total points earned in your pool.  The first tiebreaker is match wins, second is head to head results, third is point differential within the bracket and last is least points ceded.
  • We will use the Franklin X40 outdoor ball and abide by USAPA rules.
  • Prizes for winners – Medals and high fives, fist bumps and salutes!
  • Check in is 30 minutes prior to your division’s first game. We will contact you the week prior to the tourney for your start time.
