The Recreational Division is geared towards the beginning to intermediate level players. The Competitive Division is for the experienced players only. League format includes rally score and match play (three games per night). In both the Recreational Division and the Competitive Division officials are not provided and games are “call your own." The leagues take place on Wednesdays, beginning in the early evening. League format includes a minimum of seven league games followed by an all-inclusive post-season tournament. Updated league standings and game results are posted weekly. Awards are provided to league champions.
