King of the Court Tournament Format

May 13, 2021

KING OF THE COURT FORMAT

This style of tournament has recently been adopted around the world as a fast paced and high repetition tournament format. You can check out some of the best players in the world playing the KotC format in the video below.

We wanted to bring this to Bay to Bay Beach Club because it is a fantastic way to get multiple teams playing on the beach at once. With minimal down time between rallies, our athletes can maximize the amount of time playing the game. As well, this format brings in a whole new level of strategy (as well as conditioning!).

King of the Court is played with all 5 teams competing on 1 court at the same time. One side of the court is the “King” side. The other side is the serving side. The ball is served to the “King” side and the ball is played out. If you win the point, you either move to the “King” side, or receive a point if you are on that side already. Then the next team in line steps up to serve. The goal is to earn as many points possible on the “King” side in the allotted time.
