New Scoring Video
Scoring Video
We've found that one of the best ways for a new member to  get acquainted with the UPA style of play is to keep score. It forces a player to ask questions in regards to safeties, fouls, strategies, etc. Most of all, you can actually improve your game by watching your opponent's shot for shot strategy. Check out the New Scoring Video and see for yourself how easy it is!  

Commit to Sportsmanship
As you begin your match, your adrenaline begins to kick in and you feel your heart beat faster. Remember that games are meant to be fun, yet competitive as you enhance your overall performance. Be sure to keep the following in mind when you play your next big match:
  • Play fair
  • Stay calm
  • Know the rules
  • Follow the rules
  • Respect your opponent
  • Support your teammates
  • Congratulate your opponent when they win
  • Remain humble in your victories and defeats
For the spirit of competition, remember to shake your opponent's hand and say, "Good game" whether you win or lose.  Take each triumph and defeat as a lesson, as each game is another opportunity to polish your skills.
