Eligibility and Frequently Asked Questions

A team must have at least 3 eligible players available during playoffs to participate, in case of injury or sickness. It is permitted to play a team match with only 2 players, as it is during the regular season.

A player must have played in at least 2 different team matches during the regular season to be eligible for participation.

A round robin format will be used in most divisions until the final rounds, which will be single elimination. Some divisions may have a different format, to be determined by the tournament director and tournament committee.

A team match format will be used for scoring. The team winning the majority of the 3 individual matches will be awarded 1 team point (Games won is not the determining criteria for State). The team with the most team points in each age group/level of play will advance to the single elimination final rounds.
