West Chester’s “Big 64” Shootout has grown to 84 teams for this year, and it’s going to take place in two locations. Half of the field will play on West Chester’s campus this Saturday and Sunday; the other half will be playing at Spooky Nook Sports in Manheim on Saturday only.

The event is broken down into seven pods of eight teams, four with six teams and one with four teams, all of which play their own little brackets or round-robin competitions.

We’ve included all the game times in the schedule below, but not matchups; for each group, the teams will play each other in the order they’re listed first (first team listed plays second team, third team listed plays fourth team, etc.).

In the eight-team brackets, winners and losers then match up for the second and third games. For the six-team brackets, the second game set has the following matchups (1 vs. 5, 2 vs. 3, 4 vs. 6) while the third game set has (1 vs. 3, 2 vs. 6, 4 vs. 5).
