ROUND ROBIN PLAY


A “Round Robin” is structured form of play organized by skill levels. During the Round Robin session you will play a number of games, each with a different partner and against a different pair of opponents. It is designed so that all players are playing against people of roughly equal ability, which makes play the most fun and reasonably competitive for the majority of players.

Round Robins are open to PPPA members and please be sure of your skill level when deciding to participate in a RR. If you are unsure of your rating, use this guide to help you determine your skill level.

NOTE:  Sign-in for all Round Robins begins 1/2 hour prior to play time or when we have 32 players.  All participants need to stay for all 6 games.
