Event End

Participants in the summer hat league represent a wide range of skills and age groups. Many players who start in Verns league or the High School leagues continue to hone their skills in the summer hat league. The league is geared towards beginner and intermediate-level players, and is a great way to meet new people.

As in past years, there will be a lottery for men.

Games will be on Friday evenings, probably around 6:30pm, though some games may be later.

If you have any questions, !


August 21 — Thank you all for a great Summer Coed Hat League!  And congratulations to Butterfingers, 2010 Champions!

Thank you all for making this a great Summer Coed Hat League!  I think the spirit scores say it all - only 4 teams had an average score less than 6 with the lowest score 5.78!  Abba Zaba was the spirit winner and I can tell you, they had great spirit!  Congratulations Abba Zaba!

And congratulations to Butterfingers!  They played a hard fought and close game against Now or Laters.  At one point the game was tied at 11.  Well played Butterfingers!  And congratulations to Now or Laters in second and Jawbreakers in Third.  Jawbreakers played a close game with the Airheads and won with 14 to 13.  Well done all!

Thanks again for a great season.
