Style of Skeeball
All City and National Championship matches will be played using Match Play style Skeeball. If you’re not familiar with this type of Skeeball you can watch our instructional video by clicking the link below.
Teams will be separated into groups based on City they qualify from (we do our best to place a team from each city into each group). Teams will then play a in a round robin Match Play Best of 7 to determine the top 2 teams from the group.
The top 16 teams will be placed into a single elimination knock-out bracket to determine the champion. The Round of 16 will be played Best of 7 Match Play Skeeball and the Quarterfinals, Semifinals and Championship will be played Best of 9 Match Play Skeeball.
