Pool play - Pool play consists of all teams being put into pools of 7 or 8 (can do smaller pools if needed). Each team plays all other teams in their pool once. We suggest games to 15, win by 2, cap at 21 - this should take roughly 12-15 minutes per game. See the game order resource for more information.
Bracket play - Use results from pool play to determine seeds for the elimination bracket. Make sure you have a system to record and calculate rankings. See the calculating and reporting scores resources. Bracket play should be a best of three game series to 15 or 21 (dependent on timing). Each round will take roughly 45 minutes to 1 hour.
