All AA and lower doubles divisions will play pool play and all matches of pool play will be best 2 out of 3 matches, with the first two games to 21 and if necessary the third game will be to 15. Minimum of top 2 teams from each pool will advance to the playoffs if there is more than one pool in a division.

If there is only one pool in a division, if a team go undefeated in set play (not match play) they will be declared the winner. If any team does not go undefeated in set play, then the top two teams will have a one match playoff to determine the tournament winner.

For Pro Divisions, if there are 12 teams or less, they will play pool play followed by playoffs. If there are 16 or more teams, there tournament will be a double elimination tournament. (if there are 13-16 teams, it will be either pool play or double elim, it will depend on space available and tournament directors decision) All matches in the winners bracket will be matches (2 out of 3 to 21, 3rd to 15 if necessary). Contender bracket matches will be up to the tournament directors discretion and will either be matches ( 2 out of 3 to 18, 3rd to 15 if necessary) or 1 game to 25.

For all other divisions, you will play pool play with top teams from each pool advancing to single elimination brackets. All matches will be best two out of 3 to 21, 3rd game if necessary will be to 15. Only changes to this format will be due to advancing weather or darkness.

Woman who want to play in a men's division? That is fine by us. Want to play coed, but only can play on Saturday? Just sign up for a men's division. Just realize that there is not courtesy rules at all when you play men's. Men, sorry, you can't play in the woman's division unless you are under age 14, then you are allowed to here, as it is the same height net. We are all about including people to play and giving them a chance to play, not turn them away for some weird rule.

Weather Policy: If we are allowed on the beach, we will play. We let the lifeguard decide if the beach is open. If inclement weather moves in during the day, we will make the call as to refunds depending upon the time of day and how far along the tournament has progressed. Each decision will be made on a division basis.
