For eight teams, the journey to the WMBL Championship through the WMBL Playoffs will begin on July 30th. To get you prepared for what promises to be another thrilling two weeks of postseason action, here's a breakdown of the format:
Who Gets In?
Three teams from the East and West Divisions, along with two from the Central, will make up two playoff brackets (East & West)
Where Do They Go?
Whichever first place team out of the East and West divisions has the best overall record will accept the second place Central Division team into their bracket.
