Please pay careful attention to the Competition Rules below, as they have changed from previous years in respect of the responsibility for arranging matches.

Competition Rules

Arranging Matches / Deadlines

i) All matches must be completed by the due completion date of that round of matches.

ii) The first (top) named player or team in any match is the challenger, and they should contact their opponents within 2 weeks of the start of that round of matches giving a minimum of two dates on which they can play. The opponents should make every effort to accept those dates, or propose two alternatives.

iii) In the event that a match is not completed by one week after the due completion date, the two sides should agree between them which side was responsible for the non-completion of the match, and that side will forfeit the match.

iv) In the event that neither side can agree to forfeit the match, the adjudicator will decide the result of the match by the toss of a coin.

Extenuating circumstances will be considered, especially when a match has to be
abandoned by bad weather, but the maximum extension to any deadline will still only
be one week, at which point, rule iii) and then iv) will apply.

NB – At the completion of all matches the winning player or team must immediately
write the results onto the competition sheet in the clubhouse.

Match Details

All matches are the best of three Tie-break sets, unless both sides agree beforehand to play the best of five.  Tie-breaks should be played at six games all.
