League Rules

    1. Matches consist of two short sets with a tie-break at one set all.
      1. A short set is played to four games.
      2. A set is therefore won at 4-0, 4-1, 4-2, etc.
      3. At 4-3 the player with the four game advantage needs to win one more game to win the set (ie 5-3). 
      4. At 4-4, the next game is a tie-break to 7 – the set is won 5-4. 
      5. If the match goes to one set all, a competition tie-break to 10 is played. The player who received serve at the end of the previous set serves first in the tie-break.
    2. League tables can be viewed and scores added through the Club’s web portal under ‘Competitions’.
    3. The leagues will run calendar monthly unless otherwise advised due to holiday periods; strictly no extensions.
    4. 1 point will be awarded for every set won, 3 points for a match win, 1 point for every match played, 1 point will be added for playing all games. 3 points are awarded for a walkover. In the event of a tie, promotion will be decided on games difference, ie games won minus games lost.
    5. The top player will be promoted by 2 divisions, the second player will be promoted by 1 division and vice versa for the bottom 2 players. If 2 players have equal scores at the end of the cycle, the players will be positioned according to the score between them.
    6. Players will be removed from the League if no matches are played.
    7. The League Secretary reserves the right to amend the League as and when new or additional players enter depending on their playing level. Players aged 14-17 may enter the League in exceptional circumstances.
