Five of the eight teams heading to postseason have clinched their spots, but much if left to be determined. The overall playoff schedule, though tentative, has been set.

There are MANY events throughout the postseason for which all players and teams will participate, not just the playoff teams. So mark your calendars now.

  • Playoffs for 8 Teams (wildcard series, division championship series, world series)
  • Home Run Derby (one participant per team)
  • All Star Game (one participant per team)
  • Champions Dinner (season awards)
  • NWLA Scrimmage (National Champs Tampa Bay Wiffleball vs. PWL All Stars)

Please make plans to join us, especially for the final Sunday on June 22nd when the wiffleball center of the world is on Gravelly Point

WILDCARD SERIES

The opening round of the playoffs will feature eight teams, the six division champions and two wild cards. The #1 seed will play the #8 seed (unless same division) in these four matchups. The higher seed in each best of three game series gets to pick their home field for Games #1 and #3. And the overall top two seeds get to pick if they play early or late for this round.

Sunday, June 15th

  • 10:30 AM – Series #1 and #2 Game 1
  • 11:30 AM – Series #1 and #2 Game 2
  • 12:30 PM – Series #1 and #2 Game 3 (if needed)
  • 1:30 PM – Series #3 and #4 Game 1
  • 2:30 PM – Series #3 and #4 Game 2
  • 3:30 PM – Series #3 and #4 Game 3

If the two higher seeded teams pick the same home field in a time slot, one of the series will shift down one hour for start time.

DIVISION CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES

The Division Championship Series will feature the four winners from the first round. We’ll re-seed to make sure the best seed plays the worst seed, this time, regardless of division. It will again be a best of three series. These series will be SATURDAY, June 21st. That’s right, wiffle on a SATURDAY.
