Format
Pool Play
Pool play will consist of all teams playing every other team in their pool once. Games will most likely be to 15, win by 2, cap at 21 but are at the Tournament Director’s discretion. Pools will be made by the Tournament Director with the intention of having even pools based on rankings and past tournament results.
 
Bracket Play
Teams will be seeded in a bracket based on the pool play results. Each division will have its own bracket. Seeding will be done by number of losses, head to head (if applicable), point difference per game. Bracket play will most likely be 2/3 games to 15 or 21 but is at the Tournament Director’s discretion.

FAQs
 
What if it's raining?
We play rain or shine! We've had some crazy weather in the past and it's always been a blast. Unless you hear otherwise the tournament is on.
 
How many people can I have on my team? 
All the teams are composed of just two players to make it fair when endurance becomes a factor in the later rounds.
 
Can I play in multiple divisions? 
You may only play in one division each day. Therefore, you can choose between Advanced, Intermediate, Women's or Youth on Saturday and can also play Coed on Sunday.
 
I'm new to Spikeball™. Is this event for me? 
Absolutely! We have divisions for every type of player whether you're one of the elite teams in the nation or just starting out in the sport.
