The league is a mix of corporate-sponsored teams, groups of friends, and individual players. League members come from a wide range of industries and backgrounds, and we even have some well known New Yorkers who have not given up their love of the game.

Members' ages range from recent college graduates to experienced players in their late 40’s and 50’s.

How We Form Divisions & Teams

Both teams and individual players are placed in divisions based on their self-assessed skill level and position before their first season. Afterwards, all players and teams will be moved up/down a division based on their performance and their feedback on their experience. If you have any questions about where you would rank in the league, please contact our office at any time.
