Season I

September 2021 – May 2022

The mission of the MCL is to provide a statewide platform to allow you to play against people that match your skill level. We want everyone to have a fun time, meet new people and not have it be just about the money.

Through this, we will grow the game at all skill levels from someone who has never played to the pros and everyone in between.

Player’s Guide – Post 6 – MCL EventsAll MCL events have points awarded depending on where the player finishes. Those points go to your scorecard and determine the top players in each division for the season. The events will have cash prizes as well. Payout percentages are determined by MCL Corporate and communicated to regional directors.Leagues – These are the same leagues you have been playing in but now you are playing for points in the regular season with a championship bracket the last week for money. Regional – There are MCL regions throughout the state and we are continuing to add more. These events will be the Saturday tournaments like are common across the state. Some will be singles and doubles, others will be just doubles. Players will have to watch the division(s) the events are for as they won’t be open for everyone.Super Regionals – These are the same as regionals but 2-3 regions get together and hold a larger event.Conference Championship – Players within each conference play in an event for conference bragging rights. These will be held the same day at a location within each conference area. Players must play at their conference event and this is only open to paid members.State Championship – The final event of the year and open to all players with paid memberships. This will be for the final bragging rights. Players will be divided by divisions and this event includes singles and doubles. Payout rules the same as the Michigan Madness series.Michigan Madness Signature Series – These are for paid members only and there will be four of them throughout the season. Locations and dates are being finalized.These will be two-day events that include singles and doubles divided up by divisions– Advanced will be players with A A/B or B rankings– Competitive will be for players with B/C or C rankings– Social will be for players with C/D, D or E rankingsPlayers will be divided into tiers inside each ranking group. Points are awarded for these events as well as cash payouts. Payouts will be the same percentage of entry fees for each player ranking group. Entry fees paid in stay with the division for payouts. Example: The decided payout percentage is 80% and entry for singles is $20/player for all divisions.If there are 25 Advanced players the total payout for that division will be 20x25x80%=$400If there are 60 Competitive players the total payout for that division will be 20x60x.8=$960We hope you see that there will be no shortage of chances to play and compete against players of your skill level. Players are only allowed to play in their home conference event. All conference events will be held near the end of the season, on the same day at a location within the conference boundary. We hope you see that there will be no shortage of chances to play and compete against players of your skill level. There may be additional events added but that is the current list decided on.Tomorrow – post 7 of 7 See MoreSee Less
