Tournament Format:

  • “OPEN PLAY” – We realize everyone has a busy life…thus we have created an “Open Play” style tournament. “Open Play” means that for the first several rounds players can play at their will at a mutually agreeable location and time agreed upon by both. (Another words…Play when and where you can within that weeks bracket) The match must be played within the allotted time frame specified for that bracket. (typically one week- but being this is a summer league it may go a little longer because of vacations) depending on the amount of players signed up. Find a list of Public Courts here.
