Frequently the NHPA is asked how to start and conduct a league. Unfortunately there is no single good method that all can use. Many factors will influence your decision; number and location of courts; courts lighted or unlighted; number of pitchers; time available for pitching; the amount of absenteeism to be expected due to vacations and odd working hours, and many others. We offer here some general rules and some specific examples of league formats and methods of play. Also included is a description of the various handicap methods that are in use.
