    Tournament Format

    Blind Pool Play:

    ·         Team members will be selected at random by Tournament Director for each game that is played.

    ·         Players will have 2 minutes to report to the Tournament table after their name is called.  Players will receive instructions and stand by until assigned to a court.

    ·         Teams are asked to check-in with their court monitor prior to the end of the previous game

    ·         Players will be allowed to warm up before getting on the court.  No warm up time when on the court.

    ·         Games are played to 11 points (No winning by 2, first to 11 points)

    ·         Points will be recorded as the score of the game.  No Win/Loss records, just points.

    o   Team A finishes game with 11 points = 11 points will be awarded to each individual on Team A

    o   Team B finishes game with 8 points = 8 points will be awarded to each individual on Team B


    ·         Serve to score

    ·         A point is scored if the returning team fails to return the ball or if the returning team commits a fault

    ·         Teams playing will make their own calls on faults.  Honesty and Integrity – please respect each other.

    ·         Court Monitors at each court to assist with court assignments and queue of next players

    ·         Questions, requests, disputes can be made to and decided by the Tournament Director.
