              CHECKIN DESK OPEN 1135AM - 1150AM OUTSIDE COURT 21.   LATE ARRIVALS ARE NOT AN OPTION.


YOU WILL BE GIVEN A CUSTOM SCORECARD SHOWING YOU EXACTLY WHEN AND WHERE YOU PLAY 



                 ROB GIVES VERBAL OVERVIEW AT 1155AM ON COURT 21.  PLEASE BE THERE   


EACH TEAM PLAYS 8 CONSECUTIVE ROUND ROBIN DIVISIONAL GAMES IN 15 MINUTE INTERVALS STARTING AT 12:05PM AND ENDING AT PRECISELY 2:05 PM.    NO REST.  NO BREAKS.  BE MENTALLY AND PHYSICALLY PREPARED.  

 

THERE IS A LOUD BUZZER THAT GOES OFF EVERY 15 MINUTES SIGNIFYING THE END OF YOUR CURRENT GAME AND  BEGINNING OF YOUR NEXT GAME.   THE 15 MINUTES INCLUDES THE TIME REQUIRED TO GET TO YOUR NEXT COURT.  AN AVERAGE GAME TAKES 11 MINUTES.  NO TIME TO DODDLE OR TALK ABOUT YOUR RECENT HOLIDAY


IF THE BUZZER GOES OFF IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR GAME, THE TEAM THAT WAS AHEAD GETS THE WIN AND ROUNDS UP THEIR SCORE TO 11.    THE TEAM THAT WAS BEHIND GETS THE LOSS BUT ROUNDS UP THEIR SCORE BY AN EQUAL AMOUNT   (ie  9-6 would become 11-8).  IF TEAMS ARE TIED AT THE BUZZER, BOTH TEAMS GET 11 AND A WIN.   IF THE BUZZER GOES OFF IN THE MIDDLE OF A RALLY, COMPLETE THE RALLY.    


IN THE ROUND ROBIN PORTION, YOU WILL PLAY THE OTHER SEVEN TEAMS WITHIN YOUR IMMEDIATE DIVISION, PLUS ONE CROSS OVER GAME FOR A TOTAL OF EIGHT GAMES.   YOU RECORD YOUR OWN SCORES ONLY.   AFTER YOU HAVE COMPLETED ALL YOUR 8 GAMES, PLEASE TOTAL YOUR SCORES AND RETURN YOUR CARD TO THE CHECKIN DESK IMMEDIATELY.


THE PLAYOFFS WILL FEATURE 8 TEAMS FROM EACH OF THE WHITE AND BLUE DIVISIONS.


IN THE WHITE DIVISION, THE TOP TWO TEAMS FROM THE ROUND ROBIN FROM EACH OF THE THREE DIVISIONS WILL ADVANCE TO THE PLAYOFFS, ALONG WITH THE NEXT TOP TWO WHITE WILD CARD TEAMS.


IN THE BLUE DIVISION, THE TOP FOUR TEAMS FROM EACH DIVISION WILL ADVANCE TO THE PLAYOFFS.


TOP TEAMS ARE DETERMINED FIRSTLY BY TOTAL ROUND ROBIN WINS AND, SECONDLY, BY TOTAL POINTS SCORED IN THE ROUND ROBINS.
