The league is scheduled to begin Monday, April 18. There are 22 teams in the league and all teams will play seven regular season matches. There will be no games Memorial Day weekend (Fri.-Mon.). Because of that, New Kids on the Bocce and Let's Roll will play twice in week 5 and the regular season will be extended through Monday, June 6.
Matches will be played weekday (Mon.-Fri.) evenings at 6:00pm and 7:00pm and Saturday mornings at 10:00am, 11:00am & 12:00pm.
I would encourage everyone to review the rules and notes. Each match will consist of two games played to 11 points. Teams will be awarded one point in the standings for each game they win. The match time limit will remain 60 minutes. A team representative should report results (final score of each game) to email@example.com as soon as possible. Match results and updated standings will be posted on the website as soon as possible. Once at the site, click on the bocce tab, and then the standings / results link to view.
THE FIRST TEN TEAMS BY POINTS STANDING WILL QUALIFY FOR THE PLAYOFFS which will begin at the conclusion of the regular season. In addition, if two or more teams are tied for the final (10th place) playoff spot, those tied teams will qualify for the playoffs provided there wasn't a head-to-head sweep of games between the tied teams during the regular season. All playoff matches will be best two out of three games won with each game being played to 11 points.
In the event of rain, an email will be sent at least one hour before the scheduled match time for that day indicating if matches have been postponed. Team representatives are also asked to alert their respective teams. We typically will not postpone a match if it hasn't yet begun raining and there is a less than 50% chance of precipitation. If it begins raining just before or during a match, please use sound judgment and know that we can usually reschedule. Rainouts will be rescheduled as soon as possible and will most likely take place on Saturdays or Sundays. In some instances, we may ask the team representatives to make the call regarding a weather cancellation but would alert you ahead of time. Contact information will be forwarded to team representatives in the next few days.
