Tournament Rules (Adult Competition):

The purpose of the tournament is to provide enjoyable, competitive tennis for all Club members, irrespective of ability. The principle of the event is to play tennis and, therefore, we will only award walkovers in unavoidable circumstances.

 

  1. All matches will be the best of 3  sets of tennis with a tie break at 6-6. In the event that the match needs to be shotened for any reason then the third set can be a “championship” tie break of first to 10 points provided this is agreed by all players at the start of the match. Any matches which do not conform to the above format may have to be replayed at the discretion of the Tournament Organiser.
  2. All matches to be played at the club courts, unless an alternative venue is more convenient to, and agreed by, all players.
  3. All matches to be played by the deadline for each round. Players may request an extension which will be at the discretion of the Tournament Organiser.  The result of any match which is not played by the deadline or agreed extension will be determined by the toss of a coin.
  4. Any players who withdraw due to injury, before the second round, may be replaced by a lucky loser at the discretion of the Tournament Organiser. This will apply to both Singles and Doubles tournaments.
  5. It is the responsibility of all players to organise the matches within the deadline. It is recommended that all matches are confirmed by email. We recommend using the free online scheduler app www.doodle.comto help arrange matches.
  6. Any player who fails to turn up for an agreed and confirmed match will forfeit the match, unless their opponent agrees to reschedule.
  7. The winner of each tie should inform the Tournament Organiser of the result by email as soon as possible after the match
  8. Please remember to have fun and enjoy the tournament!
