Play. Drink. Be Social.
The Sand Club and our friends at 805 Beer serve up a new format where you sign up with the opposite gender and PLAY with different twosomes every game. A beer permit will be purchased by the league from 7-9P for players that choose to DRINK responsibly. This unique 4-on-4 SOCIAL league is on Monday Nights at Gene Autry Park in Mesa, Arizona from 7-8P and 8-9P.
Every week, each twosome will play one match consisting of 3 games with 3 different twosomes, lasting one-hour. Each game is to 21 points, rally scoring and cap at 21 (no win by 2). Teams switch sides when the first team reaches 11 points.
Twosome 1 (T1): John/Jane
Twosome 2 (T2): Bob/Barb
Twosome 3 (T3): Rick/Rhonda
Twosome 4 (T4): Carl/Carol
Game 1: T1 & T2 vs T3 & T4 (20 minutes) Example Score: 21-18
Game 2: T1 & T3 vs T2 & T4 (20 minutes) Example Score: 21-17
Game 3: T1 & T4 vs T2 & T3 (20 minutes) Example Score: 21-16
The twosomes will keep their points scored with the other twosomes. Using the example match above, Twosome 1 (T1) John/Jane would finish the night with a record of 3-0 with 63 points; (T2) Bob/Barb 1-2 with 54; (T3) Rick/Rhonda 1-2 with 54; and (T4) Carl/Carol 1-2 with 55. After 5 weeks, the twosomes will be ranked and divided into two divisions. Weeks 6 & 7 will be the playoffs and Week 8 is the finals. Every twosome advances to the finals for a total of 24 games on the season with and against 15 different twosomes when there are 16 total twosomes.
