After a great season of Battle Court action, Jai-Alai H2H Championship Series started up on Monday, April 18 with Singles Group 1 play followed by Singles Group II play on Tuesday, April 19. After a short break, the first full week of play started on Sunday, May 1.
H2H Championship Series matches are at 5pm EST with Doubles on Sundays, Singles Group I on Mondays and Singles Group II on Tuesdays.
Sunday’s matches are open to the public plus there is a new promotion “H2Hx10” for those in attendance. All you have to do is pick the winner of each match and the number of sets (either 2 or 3). If you get both right, you win $10. This is open for all matches throughout the evening, so if there are 6-matches, you could win $60 max. Each match is individual, so if you pick incorrectly, you still have a chance in the remaining matches. You don’t have to be there for all the matches.
