Format is two tiebreak sets, regular scoring. At six games all play a Coman Rotation Set Tiebreak to 7 by a margin of 2. At one set all play a Coman Rotation Match Tiebreak to 10 by a margin of 2. There is NO COACHING.
Matches will start the week of January 6.
If you have not done so already please send your club’s blackout dates and your co-captain’s name.
We will probably skip the week after the BNP due to many courts being used by the BNP Senior Cup. If you play on Thursday there will not be a problem.
Roster limit for 3 line leagues is 18, roster limit for 4 line leagues is 20.
First Year Captains’ Orientation was offered by no one was interested.
Pre-match Phone Call is required at least three days prior to the match. It can be a text, phone call or email and may be initiated by either captain. In the call please discuss among other things snacks, warm up courts, match time, any defaults and directions.
Contentious matches are part of tennis. If the players’ request help then a monitor representing each team should be stationed at each end of the netpost. If players ask for their opinion on a call it must be accepted.
Warm Up after scorecards are exchanged should not be in excess of 10 minutes.
Any captain or player may enter scores. Scores need to be entered within 48 hours or the match may result in a double default.
Since Head/Penn sponsors league tennis it is suggested that your game balls be Penn Championship balls.
The home team provides the game balls and snacks (optional).
If a player or team arrives 15 minutes late or later they run the risk of being defaulted. It is suggested that if you are late you should call. The opposing captain may reinstate the match.
I have many players who would like to play. If you need players please let me know.
Scheduling will occur after the Dec 26 deadline. Start times will vary according to the team and the needs of the home club.
