Please select an appropriate Bracket for your level of play. The Social Bracket is for beginners, players who normally do not play in tournaments. Our desire is to keep the tournament fun and fair for everyone, we want social/newer players to enjoy their experience.

The Mixed division has an additional Intermediate Bracket due to the large number of teams who enter this division. The Intermediate Bracket is for those teams who have 1-2 players who have played in other tournaments.

  •  MEN’S (need a pair)

    • COMPETITIVE (for all the marbles)
    • SOCIAL (for the fun of it, newer tournament players only please)
  • WOMEN’S (don’t have any)

    • COMPETITIVE (for all the marbles)
    • SOCIAL (for the fun of it, newer tournament players only please)

    • COMPETITIVE (for all the marbles, 3 or more tournament players on team)
    • INTERMEDIATE (1 or 2 on a team, who play in other tournaments) (mixed division only)
    • SOCIAL (for the fun of it, newer tournament players only please)

If you are on a MIXED team but also want to play on a MENS or WOMENS team, your Mixed team must have at least 6 players and be able to field 4 players of the required sexes without you. This is in case both teams are playing at the same time, so neither team will need to forfeit. There will be no special consideration given to either team regarding play time or court assignment.
