Format of Play

Draw Format: Round Robin with playoffs per division*


Each division will consist of round-robin draws that will play into single-elimination draws. Where the player finishes in the initial round robin will determine which subsequent single-elimination draw the player feeds into. The Tournament Director reserves the right to modify the draw format if a limited number of players enter. 


Match Format: Best of three (3) short sets. First to four (4) games wins the set. There will be a short-set tiebreak at 3-3. Service lets are not played.

Scoring Format: No-ad scoring will be used. At 3-points all (or deuce), the next point wins the game. The receiver chooses which side the point is played on.  In Doubles, the receiving team chooses which side the point is played.

  • Short-set tiebreak (3 games-all)
  • First to five (5) points (do not have to win by 2)
