Summer Hat League (2014)

Event Type
Hat League
Event Start
Event End

To play in Summer Coed Hat League you must be 18 years of age or older.  

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, !
