Match Format

  1. 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

  2. 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


Match Rules

Warm-up

  • 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.


Lateness

  • 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


Injury

  • 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.
