*While competitive, this is a casual/fun league following the rules in the link at the bottom of the page. These leagues are recommended for those still honing their skills and learning setting rules. There are no double hit fouls called in these two leagues.


Games are ALWAYS ON unless otherwise announced (a little drizzle has never stopped us). Be sure to check your email on game day if it appears that weather may cause a cancellation. Cancellations will be announced at two hours before the start of the first match.


You can use a sub if one of your players cannot make it. 1-to-1 subbing is enforced, meaning you can only invite other players equal to the same amount missing. There cannot be more subs than there are roster players on a given night. NO SUBS IN PLAYOFFS. 


Every team in the league makes the playoffs. Tournament is a single elimination format with match play. Tie breaker rules for seeding:

1. Overall record

2. Head to Head 

3. Point Differential 

*NOTE* - if there is a 3 way or more tie, head to head will be used. If all teams in tie did not play each other, overall point differential will be used.
