Winter Game Sign-up
It helps winter game planning if you let us know in advance when you're going to play. Here’s how Winter Game Sign-up works:
- Players sign up for Jan–Mar games at the club, or using the website's Partnership Desk, or by emailing email@example.com.
- 2–3 days before the game, we'll check with those who signed up to confirm they are still planning to play.
- Assuming enough players are coming, the game will be held as scheduled.
- If a game is canceled unexpectedly (weather, etc.), the players who signed up will be notified.
If you decide at the last minute to play and didn't sign up, please come to the game – walk-in pairs are always welcome.
