League Play

League Play offers NYLBC members of both genders and all levels of experience and ability an inclusive and competitive environment for competition and skills refinement.

How it Works

Each participant plays a qualifying round from thru August consisting of 4 singles matches against scheduled opponents.  The top players then compete in September using an elimination format to determine the champion.

Flexible Scheduling

Play Matches on your own schedule.  Players contact their designated opponent to play their match at a mutually convenient time so long as their match is completed by the scheduled match deadline.  You will typically have 2 weeks to play each Match.  Failure to play your Match within the designated time frame results in a default for both players.  Three (3) defaults result in player’s elimination from League Play.

Pick a Partner

If you cannot commit to playing a full match schedule, you can team with another club member as exclusive “Singles Partners” to play one or more scheduled matches in each other’s behalf.   Single Partner selections must be made prior to the start of the season and cannot be changed once the Season has begun.  Singles Partner cannot play on multiple teams.

Rink Availability

The Club reserves 2 rinks for League Play for weekday afternoon and evening play as well as from 10am to 12pm on weekend days when Club Games are scheduled.  Players who play League matches on the weekends are encouraged to remain and participate in the Club Games that follow.  Except during Monday’s Open House hours, players may play their League matches at any time on any available rink.


Player Standings are ranked by points accumulated throughout the season.


Similar to the Qualifying Round, players competing in elimination play contact their Elimination Round opponent and arrange a mutually convenient available match date.  The 4 elimination finalists vie in the champion round for the title.



The Champion will have his/her name memorialized on a perpetual trophy maintained by the Club and displayed at the Clubhouse. No prize money is awarded.


Entry Fee

$20 per Player; No extra charge for Singles Partners.
