How does the game schedule look like?
Tournament sign up is open without deadline until the 6th player is joined. From that moment the schedule is set up.
Example tournament schedule
. The round lasts 6 weeks
- Sign up deadline day before the tournament starts
- 1st day — assigning players to the groups
- 2nd day to last day — players arrange the games between themselves, play their matches and report the results.
- last day — End of the tournament round and final results announcement
Who can play?
Anyone! Groups are ordered in the difficulty level. Typically, the first group is for more advanced players, last for beginners. By winning matches, you can get into the higher group in the next round.
Regardless of your tennis skills, you will find the opponents for you.
Games are played until 2 won sets, meaning the player who first won the second set won the game. An example of the game results:
John Brown won with Robert Lee 6:4 6:0
John Brown won with Robert Lee 6:4 3:6 6:0
John Brown won with Robert Lee 6:4 7:6 (7:4) „The last set was a tiebreak”
In the group, players must play matches with all the other players, meaning each with each. If in the group we have 6 players, the player must play 5 matches.
We recommend booking the court for 2 hours. If 2 hours were not enough to finish the game, the game can be finished later and the result can be updated.
Players who played at least one game are automatically promoted to the next tournament round.
Each won set is count as a point.
If the opponent didn't come for arranged game or is significantly late it means walkover. In this situation, the player gets 2 points.
Courts and balls
Each player brings tennis balls with him. Balls must be in good shape so that both players feel comfortable playing them. Players have a right not to play the game if the balls have bad quality. In that case, the game must be rescheduled.
Players arrange the time and place to play between themselves. Players share the court costs. To be able to play all matches players must arrange the game just after the tournament has started.
We make all to ensure players are engaged and proactive, but we cannot answer for them.
Players can communicate between themselves anyway. If you find problems that players don't respond to you, please let us know. This situation cannot be a reason to return the entry fee, which has been paid.
