Warm-up:

  • Players have only 10 minutes to warm-up.

  • Please show up 10 minutes prior to your start time for each match. Please check in with all players ready.

  • For every five full minutes that a player is late for a match, that player/team will lose one game, starting at the five minute mark. For example, if a player/team is 10 minutes late that player/team will be down 2-0. At the 15 minute mark the player/team will automatically be defaulted.
