As in years past, Luau registration is priced on a per player basis, meaning that if you have 3 players for a triples team, you pay for 3 players, if you have 4 players for a triples team, you pay for 4 players, etc. The 4's & 6's divisions work the same way where you pay per player, NOT per team. Each registrant's fee includes tournament play, breakfast, lunch and beer (10a-5p). Beer will be available for purchase before 10am. Only paying participants/spectators may take part in the tournament and all of the festivities. Shirts are no longer included with registration. 


Not playing? No problem! Spectator passes are available for purchase and include food and beer throughout the day! Click here to purchase your spectator pass in advance.
