Propose & Play
You set the time, date, and location of when you want to play. Matches can either be proposed that teams can accept based on day/time or you can issue a direct challenge to a team.
A mobile app that makes scheduling and scoring as easy as one, two, three. Organize your own matches based on your schedule, play the match, and record your scores directly into the app as soon as your match is finished.
Your team will earn points for playing a match based on the number of games you win vs played. There is also a degradation factor if you don't play at least one match a week. A min of 8 matches is required to qualify for finals.
Do you have what it takes to make the Final Four?
The Top 4 Teams at the end of each session will battle it out in a round-robin format for the ultimate grand prize and the Gold medal! We are working now to secure some food/beer trucks and a centralized location for the season-ending tournament which will also include open play for everyone to enjoy.
The top three teams in each division will all be awarded medals (Gold, Silver, Bronze) based on the results of the Round Robin Finale.
