Club Championship 2015 Format

1. Match Format
- Each match shall consist of three tiebreak sets (tiebreak introduced at 6 games all)
- If there is mutual consent, the third set may be played as a Championship tiebreak (first to ten points, have to win by two clear points: i.e. 10-8, 11-9 etc.)
-This competition works out as a knock out event. You will have a minimum of two matches as a plate draw will be in place.

2. Court Bookings and Equipment
- Players are responsible for contacting the opposing team/players to organize fixtures
- Players are responsible for booking their own courts
- Players must provide a minimum of three tennis balls for matches
- If a fixture is played on a court that has not been booked and the fixture is stopped before it is finished, the fixture must be booked again and continued from the same score.

3. Incomplete fixtures
- If a particular team can prove they have made a concerted effort to play a fixture and the opposing team has failed to comply, the match shall be awarded to the former team.

4. Results
- All results must be submitted to Simon Baker as soon as the match has been played.

5. General Conduct and rules
- Players will keep their own scores and call lines
- Lines must be called immediately with as little delay as possible
- In the event of a dispute, offer to replay the point
- In the event that both teams cannot remember the score, continue from the last known and agreed score
- In the event that a player does not know whether the ball was in or out, the point must be given to the team that hit the ball in question
- If play is interrupted, for example, a ball rolls across the court, the point must be replayed
- Three consecutive let cords when serving is the equivalent of a fault (i.e. if the server is on the first serve and hits three let cords in the same point, even if the ball lands in, the server now only has a second serve)
- At the end of the first round new pairs can be added into the league

6. Deadline
- Matches must be complete by September 12th ready for finals day on the 13th September.

7. Contacting the opposition
- Contact details will not be put up on the sheets
