Draws will be posted on the Sunday prior to the week of the match play
Once the draws are sent, no adjustments will be made, except under special circumstances.
If player name(s) are omitted from the draw due to administrative error, the draw will be redone
If player(s) are omitted from a tournament and cannot provide proof of registration, unfortunately the player(s) will not be participating in the tournament and the draw will not be redone
Each player has the responsibility to find out when their first match is scheduled
Seeded players are determined by the Programs Committee based on the input of the Head Pro
Tournament draws with fewer than eight participants may be cancelled or combined
Substitutions may be made prior to completion of the first round
If seedings are affected by the substitution, the Tournament Director may re-do the draw
Quarterfinal and earlier rounds:
pro-sets (a race to 8 games – just like the ladder)
one hour time limit
if by the one hour mark no one has reached 8 games, the player with the most games wins
if by the one hour mark both sides have equal number of games, a one-point sudden death will be played, with the server being decided by spinning a racquet
Semifinal and Final rounds:
best 2 out of 3 sets with the 3rd set being a 10 point tiebreaker
three hour time limit
7-point tie-breaker at 6 – 6 in the first two sets
Players have only 10 minutes to warm-up. If a player or team is given a penalty for being late, they are allowed a full warm-up from that point in time (10 minutes) without additional penalty.
For every 5 full minutes that a player is late for a match, that player/team will lose one game, starting at the 5 minute mark.
At the 15 minute mark the player/team will automatically be defaulted.
Rescheduling of Matches
Matches are to be played during club hours on the day and at the time scheduled without exception
A match may be rescheduled if:
There is a rain delay of more than 30 minutes
The match has been cancelled by the tournament director due to weather conditions
In the tournament director’s sole discretion he or she feels that it would be fair and appropriate under the circumstances to reschedule the match
Failure to play a match due to injury may result in default.
Code of Conduct
Tournament rules are to be strictly followed, and on-court conduct and sportsmanship is expected or player(s) will be disqualified.
