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. Based on where the player finishes in the initial round robin will determine which subsequent single elimination draw the player feeds into.

*Tournament Director reserves the right to modify Draw Format if a limited number of players enter. 

 

Match Format - Best of 3 short sets. First to 4 games wins the set (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 5 points (do not have to win by 2)
