1. MASTER'S LEAGUE PLAY (FOR TEAMS) OCCURS ON WEDNESDAYS
MASTERS LEAGUE plays (7 game seasons) on Wednesdays.
You can be a Masters team and play on other days (see 3rd section below).
Masters teams- will play against other Masters teams- in
2017, 2018 & 2019, you will play mostly Masters teams but
you will also play against regular teams. By 2020,
Masters Team will only play against other Masters teams (each year- we
intend to grow this currently 6 team league by 2 teams so by 2020, we hope
to have 12 teams).
QUALIFYING- AS A MASTERS TEAM: all of your players are
over 40 years in age with a up to 2 players who are under 40 years
old (under 40 players, however, must play under the
'Under 40 rule'
players under the age of 40, are handicapped to score 15
points maximum per game. This rule is only for when a Masters team plays
against another Masters team. This means that when a Masters Team is
playing against a non-masters/ regular team,
your under 40 players can score however many points- you want, of course.
What if my team cannot play on Wednesdays? a
Masters Team that cannot play Wednesdays (and instead plays on the other
days) can expect 1 to 3 games against Masters type teams (becuase those
other days do not have a lot of Masters teams like the Wednesday league
does)- and probably 4 to 6 games against regular teams; that being said,
teams from all 7 days will be a part of the Top 25 Masters Rankings system.
How is Championship determined: there are 2 champions
crowned per season; one champion is the team that finishes ranked #1 (from
the Top 25 Rankings). The other champion is the best team from the
Wednesday Masters League (on your 7th game, the top 2 Wednesday Masters
teams will play for the Masters Championship).
