King or Queen of the beach tournament format means you sign up as an individual with no partner needed. For example: Sara, Ruth, Stella, and Sophie are all in a group. Sara will play with Ruth against Stella and Sophie followed by Sara will play with Stella against Ruth and Sophie, and finally Sophie and Sara will play against Ruth and Stella. After the points that each person earned are tallied, the players are seeded by points earned into gold, silver, and bronze brackets and do it again! 6 sets played between pool and bracket play.
