Men’s and Mixed Doubles format
These tournaments will be played as traditional Knockout Rounds, as per the draw.
Matches to be played as 2 normal tie-break sets (tie-break to at least 7 points, by 2 clear points), plus a Championship tie-break if needed (1st player or pair to at least 10 points, by 2 clear points).
All Finals to be played as 3 normal tie-break sets (tie-break to at least 7 points, by 2 clear points).
All games will play a ‘sudden death’ point on 2nd Deuce.
If a player is injured during a match and cannot continue, they must forfeit the match and their opponent(s) will progress to the next round. If a player cannot play the tie by the agreed dates, they must forfeit their place to a Lucky Loser.
Players are asked to play their matches in good time to keep the tournaments on schedule and all participants should be pro-active in arranging dates.
The winning player(s) should write the results on the sheets on the Clubhouse noticeboard (if the Clubhouse is open) or otherwise send an email to the Tournament Organiser, Sue Leonard, at email@example.com
The Club arranges mid-week friendlies with other local clubs during the Summer months for Ladies Doubles, Men’s Doubles and Mixed Doubles.
Matches comprise eight tie-break sets, with each pair playing four sets against pairs from the opposing club (two sets against one pair, and two sets against the other pair).
