Running a horseshoe tournament is pretty simple as long as you have people that wish to participate in it. Divide your players up into teams of two, or you can play individuals if there are not a lot of players. Each round is played till one team reaches 40 points. The winners move on to the next round and the losers are out of the tournament. If you are running the tournament then be sure to keep accurate score and make sure everyone knows what time they are playing.
