For those not familiar with bracketpal, it can tell you your whole schedule by clicking your team name, including reffing duties. I suggest using the court grid option, with highlighted colors. Mens and Womens open start off on 2 courts, away from each other. Mens A and Womens BB 4 team pools have a slightly delayed start time.

 

Pool play:

3 team pools will be 3 sets to 25 points

4 team pools will be match play 2/3 (25/25/15 if needed)

5/6 team pools will be 2 sets to 21 points

**There should be 7 minutes total in between matches. Timers will be used.

Please clean up after yourself and your team. We have put a hefty deposit down for cleaning and would much rather use that money on you guys at the player’s party.

 

The Player's Party is at Old Crow River North.149 W Kinzie St. Chicago. It is about 2 blocks from the host hotel. Depending on the weather,  a nice 4 min walk. We are buying domestic beer from 10pm-12am. Division winners will get bottle service, either vodka or jack fire (please remember to tip your server). Old Crow has great food if anyone is trying to catch the NCAA Basketball games. All players will get a wristband that will get you in with no cover and the beer special. Additional wristbands are available for purchase for people who don’t play. Your wristbands will also get you admission to Tunnel (upstairs) after midnight.  If you are not a winner, but want to win the party with bottle service, let me know and there are some specials we can do for you. Tunnel is open til 3am and we intend on being there all night. If we go to a late night spot, you will know. NEW THIS YEAR: your wristband also gets you $10 off BRUNCH at Parlay on Sunday morning.
