2. How does FlexLiga work?
When you sign up for a FlexLiga account, you will be able to select and enroll in a league of your choice. You can sign up for a league a few weeks before the competition begins. You may register/play in more than one league.
Before the start of the season you will be notified by e-mail about checking your account for upcoming games and scheduling your first match.There are six seasons per year. Each season takes about 6 weeks, follows by two rounds of playoffs. Every sport/league will be open for registration in each season.
To play your game, you will need to contact your opponent to establish the time and place of your match. All the necessary information will be available on FlexLiga few days before the start of the season.
If you are designated to play at home, then you select the time and place of your game. Please take your opponent’s availability and location into consideration when scheduling your match. When you play at home, you are also required to reserve/pay for the place where the match will take place (if necessary, you will need to pay for accessories for the game such as tennis balls, etc). Of course, you can make an arrangement with your opponent to split the costs.
See Rules of the Game to learn more about the rules of each sports league on FlexLiga and the scoring.
After the match is completed, either you or your opponent (only one) is required to report the score of the match. You have two weeks following your match to report the score. After two weeks, the score cannot be reported, and "0" points will be assigned to each player. Tables and results are available on FlexLiga and they are being updated in real time.

- Beginner/Intermediate level is usually participating in 1-3 years of active play.
- Intermediate level is usually participating in between 3- 5 years of active play.
- Intermediate /Advanced is usually participating in 5-8 years of active play.
- Advanced level is usually participating in more than 8 years of active play.
Active play = 2-3 times a week.

11. What are the game rules on FlexLiga?
There is no referee during the game! Players are responsible for making calls, such as if the ball was in bounds or out of bounds. Usually, the player closest to the ball will make the call. Remember, in the spirit of good sportsmanship you must be absolutely sure that the ball was out to call it out: otherwise, the ball should be considered good. You can always repeat the play if you and your opponent cannot agree if the ball was out.
