Overview
Each year, the Advanced Singles League operates six seasons (Winter, Spring, Summer, Late Summer, Fall, Late Fall). These seasons run consecutively over the course of the year. Four of the six seasons are tied to ADO national competitions. The other two seasons were originally ad hoc but over time became formalized as open playoff rounds.

Weekly Tournaments
Each week, The Advanced Singles League is run as a modified round robin or double elimination tournament with a $10 entry fee. 100% of the entry fees are paid back in prize money each week. There is no explicit week to week commitment to play. That said, for players who pay the $15 season league fee, the match results and statistics are compiled over the course of each season and will be used to seed eligible players into the championship tournament on the last week of that season (regular seasons only). Additionally, the match results and statistics compiled over the course of each season and will be added to the yearly standings used to rank eligible players for the Coopers Singles Cup Championship.

Winter, Spring, Fall and Summer Seasons, Regular Seasons
The Advanced Singles League runs 4 regular seasons where the top players earn tickets to respective ADO National Qualifiers. ADO Tickets are awarded to the top finishers in the championship tournament held at the end of the season. Prizes will be one ADO Ticket for each $110 in league and venue matching funds that have accumulated over the course of the season up to a maximum of 4 tickets per season. Any additional sponsor monies are banked for the Coopers Cup championship.

The league and the venue each contribute $5 per player entry. These monies are used to pay the $110 entry fee required to participate in an ADO National Qualifier. This works out to one ADO ticket awarded for every 11 player entries (player count is accumulated over each session).

Late Summer and Late Fall Seasons, Interim Seasons
At the discretion of the Tournament Director, Advanced Singles League may opt to run a Late Summer and/or a Late Fall interim season. The players will not compete for ADO tickets during interim seasons and there may be no season championship. During interim seasons each week is run as an independent event. However, for players who pay the $15 season league fee, the match results and statistics are compiled over the course of the season and will be added to the yearly standings used to rank eligible players for the Coopers Singles Cup Championship.

League Fees and Player Rankings
Players are not required to pay the league fee to play each week. However, players must pay the $15 league fee each season to be eligible to accumulate points, win ADO tickets, play in the season championship and be invited to the Coopers Cup Advanced Singles Championship at the end of the year. Subsequently, each player is responsible for paying the event entry fee whenever they play.

During the interim sessions (Late Summer and Late Fall) we are not playing for ADO Tickets, instead we are playing for the entry fees and points. We are adding the sponsor contributions to the nightly payouts.
