The leagues plays on Thursdays nights.  Matches start at 7:30 PM.  
Format for the Fall and Winter session (4 person teams): Each team is made up of 4 to 7 players.  Only four players for each team will play in a match.  Each player of one team will play each player of the opposing team one game in a standard “Round Robin” format.  The winner of each game is awarded 10 points, and the loosing player is awarded one point for each ball of his group that is pocketed during the game.  One “Match Point” is awarded for each round won, and one “Match Point” for the total of all four rounds.  If a round or the total ends up in a tie then one half point is awarded to each team.
Format for the Summer (3 person teams):
The format is nearly the same as the 4 person team with the obvious exception that each team will field only 3 players for each match.
The individual points are totaled and averaged each week.   The “Team Points” are also totaled week, so each and every round is important!  Team and individual standings are based on those averages.
