All Singles players will have a time allocated for their first match. If your doubles match is not yet scheduled it will be scheduled after Friday nights play and it will not be played before 11am on Saturday.
Please note that due to the number of entries received in A Mixed, B Mixed and the Over 40s Singles, these events will be conducted as a Round Robin. One (1) pro set, first to 8 with 2 games advantage and a tie-break at 8-8. There is no Final in these events – just the winner of the pool. A trophy will be awarded to the winner only.
All other events will be knock-out and all matches up to the finals will be the best of 3 sets, with the 3rd set being a super tie break (first to 10 with a 2 point advantage). The first two sets are normal first to 6 sets with a tiebreak at 6-6.
Please familiarise yourself with the rules and regulations available on the Tournament website. The Tournament will be played with Slazenger balls.
