Coaching During a Match

Q. I captain a Men's USTA 4.0 league tennis team (2 singles contests 3 doubles contests per 'match'). Is there any circumstance under which coaching is permitted during a contest?

A. The USTA League Regulation reads:

3.03H Coaching. Coaching will be permitted during the rest period only if the scoring method for the championships level is the best of three tie-break sets and there is a 10 minute rest period between the 2nd and 3rd sets.

This regulation is repeated in the Mixed and Super Senior Division regulations.

One section, NorCal, has received a waiver to permit coaching during a USTA League match.
