All teams are co-ed and must have at least three female and three male players. At least one team member must be a UA Little Rock student, employee, or alumni.

The team entry fee is a donation of 60 nonperishable food items or $100. Teams can check in for the tournament at 3 p.m. The first game will begin at 4:15 p.m. Dinner will be provided.
