Rules & Regulations

To ensure that everything runs smoothly and successfully, given the large number of matches that need to be played throughout the tournament, it is important that everyone participating abides by the following rules.

Match Scheduling

All rounds are to be played within the scheduled time indicated at the top of each draw sheet.  Extensions will only be permitted in exceptional circumstances and with permission from the referee. All correspondence should be addressed to: tournament@chandosltc.com

You should only enter the tournament if you are available to play on Finals Day.

If you are playing in a singles tournament and find you are unable to continue beyond the next round, you can either grant a walkover to the opposition or concede at match point.

If you are playing in a doubles tournament and find you are unable to continue beyond the next round, it is your responsibility to inform your partner, who then has the option to grant a walkover or to concede at match point.

If you are unable to contact your opponent, cannot agree a time to play by the date set, are not around for any significant time during the tournament or have any queries regarding scheduling, then discuss with the organising committee.

The tournament committee urges all players to respect the play by dates; it is within the discretion of the committee to scratch a player if they consider that a player is not taking the deadlines seriously.

Booking Courts for Matches

These should be recorded in the Booking Schedule which can be found in the Clubhouse; allow a maximum of one and a half hours per match. The schedules will make it clear which courts are available for each time slot.

The tournament is to be played on both indoor and outdoor courts. In the event of any disagreement between the opponents on the surface to be chosen, this will be decided by the spin of the racquet.

Court Availability

A few courts will be blocked out for some booking periods to enable matches, coaching to continue.

Tennis Balls

New balls will be used and distributed for matches and will be in cans of three, We would appreciate return of any balls for future use in social tennis.

Match Play

All matches will be played as the best of 3 tie-break sets (two standard sets, with the third set as a match tie-break i.e. reaching 10 points with a margin of 2).

All matches must be continuous (i.e. no break in play between sets/matches unless weather prevents play.)

Line calls

It is up to the receiver to decide a line call and the decision is then final.

Scores

Should be recorded by players on the sheets in the Clubhouse at the end of the match.

Late Arrivals

If you are more than 20 minutes late for a scheduled event you forfeit the first set; if you are more than 30 minutes late you forfeit the match.

Forfeits can be avoided if you contact your opponent in advance to agree a rescheduled time. Any disputes should be referred to the organising committee.

Substitutions

If you are playing in a doubles tournament and your partner is injured in an early round, please do not substitute your partner without first consulting someone from the tournament committee.

LTA Code of Conduct

We are adhering to the LTA code of conduct. Any unsportsmanlike behaviour will be reported and the Tournament Committee will have the right to disqualify.

Referees

The Tournament Committee will act as referees for the Club Tournament and their decisions are final. Any on court dispute, please contact the Tournament Referee at tournament@chandosltc.com immediately.

Finals Day 2022

ABTO umpires will be in attendance on Sunday 9 October for finals day (Current Covid-19 situation allowing but may change). There will be a FINALS DAY where complimentary refreshments for all will be available and all are invited. Junior events will be scheduled and incorporated with senior events.
