SCTC Mixed League Rules and Regulations
Teams will play every other team in their division once only before Sunday 25th February 2018.
The knockout competition will follow this until the end of the season and trophy presentation. Date TBC.
Each match should be best of 3 sets. The first 2 sets are to be normal sets with a tie-break at 6-6. If the match is tied at 1 set apiece, the match shall be decided by a match tie-break (tie-break first to 10 points, 2 points clear) to decide the match.
Teams may decide to play a single set match, for example if they expect weather/curfew is going to interrupt the match. If the match is a single set, only 1 set will be awarded and will be reflected as a 1 set match in the event that there is a tie at the end of the season.
If all matches have been completed, standings will be decided in the following order:
A: Win-loss record
B: Head-to-head record of matches involving tied teams only
C: Sets +/- of matches involving tied teams only
D: Games +/- of matches involving tied teams only
E: Sets +/- of all completed matches for each team
F: Games +/’ of all completed matches for each team
E) If there are outstanding fixtures at the end of the season then the following points system will be used:
9 pts per victory 6 pts per loss 3 pts per unplayed match 2 pts per set won
If two or more teams are tied on points, criteria B-D will be used to determine standings.
Once results have been sent to the tournament organiser (either via text at 07548169884 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org) I will upload them to the club website for viewing.
Given the points system, there is no need to formally withdraw from the competition. However, if you know you cannot play any more matches please have the courtesy to notify your remaining opponents, as well as the tournament organiser.
Given that this is a doubles tournament, if one player in a team cannot fulfil their commitment due to injury but the other player can, then replacements are permitted and previous results will still count for the remaining player. The incoming player is not required to pay the entry fee, and the injured player will not receive a refund.
