What to Expect

Players in this NEW mens league are experienced players, with intermediate skill and solid knowledge of the game. All players, regardless of skill and experience level, must play with a safety-first, respect-always, for-fun attitude. If your opponent won't go to the pub with you after the game because of how you behave on the court, this is not the league for you.

Playoffs are back this season! Score reporting and standings will be kept and League Champions will be celebrated! As always, we will also present the Steam Whistle Spirit Award at the end of the season!

Self-officiated play governed by FCSSC’s unique Spirit Point System.
