There are 32 total pools (each made up of 6 teams) in the Tournament.  The champion of each pool will be the only teams entering the 32 team playoffs.  There will be no wild card teams.  In case of ties at the end of pool play, the standard WWBA tie breaking rules will apply, in order of application:  1)  head to head competition, 2) fewest runs allowed, 3) most runs scored.

The first round of the playoffs will be played (all 16 games) at 7 pm on Saturday.  Sites for each game will be announced as the pairings are made.  First round playoff pairings will pit the following pool champions against each other:  Pool A vs. Pool AA, Pool B vs. Pool BB, C vs. CC, D vs DD, E vs. EE, F vs. FF, G vs. H, I vs. J, K vs. L, M vs. N, etc.

The home team in each playoff game will be determined by coin flip.  There will be no playoff seeding of any type.

The Round of 16 and Quarterfinals will be held on Sunday, with all games being played at the East Cobb Complex and Kell HS.  A complete slate of consolation games will be held on the outlying fields on Sunday.

The semi-finals will be held at the EC Complex at 9 am on Monday, with the Championship Game immediately following.
