The league is limited to 16 teams, and the registration deadline is June 1, the release points out.
“This fun, ‘call-your-own’ league uses USAPA rules” and is open to players 18 and older, the release notes. The cost is $30 per player; it includes a T-shirt uniform. Each participant must register with a partner, the release also says.
