The new league, announced September 21, will debut with eight teams on November 5 at Dreamland, a Dripping Springs outdoor entertainment venue. The players will compete in singles, doubles, and mixed competitions to split a $150,000 prize purse.
Each team will consist of four players — two male and two female — and a player draft was held on October 1. (From Biz Journals)
