SayHiLi FREE Contest for Battle Court

Welcome to SayHiLi’s FREE Weekly Pick 3 Spring Contest for Battle Court Matches

Goal:  Select the winning Battle Court Team for each of the 3-days of Battle Court matches for the Contest Week; Friday through Tuesday.  The Battle Court point system used at the Magic City Fronton is also used for this Contest; Singles match wins are worth 1-point and Doubles match wins are worth 1.5 points for each game day.  The Battle Court Team with the most total points for the day is the winning Team. If you are the ONLY Contestant with all (3) Battle Court Team winners correctly selected for each of the (3) Battle Court match days for the Contest Week, then you win the Contest Prize.  Should a tie occur, there is a Tie-Breaker based on the Winning Team’s Score on the final day.

Enter each weekly contest and you can email your one FREE Contest Entry between Wednesday and 6:50-pm EST on Friday for each contest week. 

There is a new Contest each week, a total of 10-Contests. Contests run from 2/24 through 5/2.
