When you arrive at Harriet Tubman Elementary, please sit on the bleachers with your team. The Blackshirt volunteers will call you off by team name pairings and court number at your scheduled start time. A bocce set, score card, etc. will be located at your pre-set numbered court on the field.
Players at 6:30 p.m. will be responsible for pacing out their courts (approx 5x25 paces). Players at 7:30 p.m. will be responsible for turning in the equipment when games are finished.
Be sure to hand your score to a Black Shirt volunteer at the end of your game and make sure you write your team names on the score card. Check out our rules for more details. Standings and photos will be updated each week.
