IMPORTANT REMINDERS FOR PLAYOFF TEAMS:

  1. PLAYOFF ELIGIBILITY: Please remember that all players must have played in a minimum of 3 regular season matches in order to qualify for the playoffs.  Players who have been deemed ineligible by the league will have their names appear in italics on the MMDL Stats Website.  If you have any questions about this policy, please contact your Area Director or the League Commissioner.

  2. Please remember to remind your sponsor about the possibility for Thursday night playoff matches and check their schedule for conflicts with parties or other events.

  3. Winning captains - DON'T FORGET - report playoff match results immediately following your win, call or email your area director as instructed on the playoff schedule sheet.

  4. Driving Directions to Opponent's Sponsor are available from the MMDL Stats Website. Note: May not contain every sponsor, if you don't find yours, try mapquest.com or Google Maps.

  5. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS regarding the playoffs, please contact your Area Director.  ADs are extremely busy during the playoffs and have many other captains to consider, so please be patient and make sure you have all of your information and questions at hand when contacting them. AD contact info is listed on your area playoff schedule or click here.

  6. Playoff Results will be reported after each round is completed on the MMDL website - see above.

  7. TIP: For a match report, since these are not mailed into the league, you may use an extra blank regular season match report (separate the three carbons so you have three copies to use), or just a blank piece of paper.  To download a blank match report, click here.

(Reminder) League-Wide Format Change:

601 Triples is now 501 Doubles

Beginning in the Spring 2011 season, MMDL will be replacing the two 3-on-3 601 games with three doubles 501, DIDO, single leg in ALL DIVISIONS. A significant percentage of the league membership has expressed strong feelings in support of this change and the Board of Directors has made the difficult decision to amend the format. In addition, this adjustment will result in a new order of play, including a shot for cork to see who goes first in the doubles 501.

NOTE: Unless done for a rubber match (third leg tiebreaker), the team listed under for the shot for cork shoots first and DOES NOT have choice for who shoots first.

Click here to discuss this issue with other league members.

NEW MATCH ORDER OF PLAY:
