League Structure

There are two seasons per year, one in September-Fall season and one in January-Winter season. Each league runs for 14 weeks, the last of which is a fun night which is called “windup.” There is a semi-playoff between the top four players in a division, then players five to eight and so on.

The league is open to both male and female players.

Unfortunately, people cannot drop in as all schedules are set. If anyone gets hurt of drops out, there will be replacement players sought. You may make up a missed game by contacting The 56 Restaurant at 403-274-5574. Please inform the staff this is a make-up game, the name of both players, and the date/time you wish to play. There is no cost for a make-up game, but please limit your play to 45 minutes. TGCA has the right to deny make-up games, if the courts are booked.
