Position Round

  1. The last week of the season will be a position round format. All teams will play. The 1st and 2nd teams will be paired up, 3rd & 4th, etc.
  2. Position night is not winner take all. League champion will be decided by overall league games (sets) won during the 8 week season.
  3. A one game playoff to 15 points will be played for any ties for 1st place (regardless of who won during the regular season).

If your team cannot play or does not have enough players to play within 10 minutes of the posted start time, you will forfeit the first game after 10 minutes, 2 games after 15 minutes and all 3 games after 20 minutes. An exception can be made by the league manager for teams that play in multiple leagues on the same night.
  2. Games will typically be played rain or shine. In the event of severe weather, games may be delayed or cancelled by the league manager.
