A tourney for individual players where teaming is prohibited. The circuit consists of a number of matches throughout the year, with players aiming to qualify for the finals and then win it all. This is a great way to get started playing matches without having to commit to a team or a multiple-day tournament, as you can play in one circuit event—or all of them—at your convenience.
