FORMAT


ACL Rounders is a Progressive Round Robin format where all teams are put in a pool. 6 (or more) rounds will be played by each team.  The first-round opponents will be random. For each round after the first, teams will be matched up against another team with the same (or similar) record. 1-0 teams will play 1-0 teams. 3-1 teams will play 3-1 teams, or similar. After the 6th round, each pool will be divided into 4 groups (Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, Level 4). Within one hour after rounders, a list will be posted near the directors table with the Level players are in for Singles and Doubles.

The four pools of each Level will be put in either two or four double-elimination brackets for Singles depending on the number of entrants. (see start times above)

Doubles will be double-elimination brackets, two or four brackets per Level depending on the number of entrants. (see start times above)

All games (Rounders, Singles and Doubles) will be played to 21. See the full ACL rules & regulations here.


REGISTRATION


Early registration for Platinum players members will open on Monday, February 8th, 2021 at 8:00 am EST and remain open for one week. If there are open spots after one week of Platinum Early Bird registration, General registration will open for all members on February 15th at 8:00 am EST. Registration will close on March 21st at midnight. If you want to partner with a specific individual, you will both need to register individually before the event sells out. If only one person from the pair is able to register, the registered player will need to partner with another registered player.

For example, Peter is a platinum player and signs up during Early Bird registration. Brad is Peter's partner and is not a platinum member. The event is sold out before Brad can register, so Peter will need to find another partner who was able to register.

To avoid missing out on the Mid-Atlantic Cornhole Fredericksburg Open, upgrade your membership to the Platinum level to access Early Bird Registration. This event will NOT have a wait-list. If spots become available due to no-shows, we will allow walk-up registrations on a first-come first-serve basis.
