General Tournament Information:
Expect to play your first match in July. If there are more than 16 entries for a draw, the “round of 32” will have to play their first match by July 12. Tournaments with draws of 16 or fewer entries, the first match (round of 16) will have to be played by July 31st.
Participants will play at least two matches as all Tournaments will have a consolation draw. Any player that loses the first match will have an opportunity to play on in the consolation draw until a second loss. All members, including junior family members are welcome to participate in the tournaments.
Sign up sheets are now posted at the Club. The cost for each player is $25.00 ($50.00 per team for doubles), which will include light breakfast, lunch and prizes for winners on the days of the Finals. Entrants should submit their e-mail addresses and cell phone numbers when signing up. All entrants will be charged the full entry fee regardless of cancellations or injuries unless the entrant has cancelled at least five days before the start of the tournament.
Booking for tournaments can be made 7 days in advance. Online booking will accommodate a 2-hour Prime Time slot with a special “Tournament Court” booking option. Please note that booking a tournament match in Prime Time counts toward the week’s maximum number of hours played in Prime Time.
Singles Tournaments Women & Men Championship and Senior Women & Senior Men:
Format: Matches are to be self-scheduled for 90 minutes within a 2-hour time frame (warm-up 15 minutes, play 90 minutes, play a tiebreaker, if necessary) Play 2 out of 3 sets, add scoring, a standard 7-point tiebreaker at 6-6 games each. If a third set is unfinished when time runs out, sum the total games won to determine the winner and if total games won are tied at the end of 90 minutes, play a 7-point tiebreaker (first to 7 points by two) to determine the winner. In the Semi-Finals and Finals, play out a full best-of-3 sets.
Singles Finals: Sunday September 14th (rain date Sept. 21st).
Doubles Tournaments Men, Women & Mixed Championship:
Format: same as stated for the Singles draw on page 6.
Doubles Finals: Saturday September 13th (rain date Sept. 20th).
Senior Mixed Doubles Tournament:
Combined age MUST be 125 years of age or more within 2014 (no individual age requirement). For every 5 additional years (i.e. combined age 130) the doubles team will be able to claim 1 point at any time, during each set played.
For example: Your team has a combined age of 130-134, this entitles you to 1 point per set (only 1 point per set, no carry-overs), the game score is “your advantage”, you choose to claim your free point before the next point starts and the game is then won. A combined age of 135-139 entitles your team to 2 points per set (no carry-overs). And so on...
Format: same as stated for the Singles draw on page 6.
Final: Saturday September 13th (rain date Sept. 20th).
