Fall Doubles League

It’s no secret around here, us playtesters are a competitive bunch! We have the ability to turn the most mundane thing into a competition. So with that being said, we have started our Doubles League for the end of 2015.

Here’s a quick run down of the competition. We have 5 teams and each team will play each other twice (8 game pro-sets) and then we will play out a tournament. Each week, one team will have a “bye” and will be in charge of showing you guys a doubles drill they like to practice to key in on some doubles skills.

We are streaming the matches live on each week. You can click on live streaming, or check into our social media pages and find the link to directly stream the matches on YouTube. We will be playing every Thursday at 11am PST and 12:30pm PST.

This week, Brittany and I take on Troy and Sebastian at 11am, while the defending champs, Andy and Spencer will play Mark Boone and Granville. Chris and Marco have a BYE this week and will be sharing some of their doubles insights with you guys!

Enjoy and play with heart,
