RLTC Tournament Rules
RLTC Club Tournaments are for full members only. Social members are not eligible.
Players bring a can of new balls to each match. Loser keeps the balls used, winner keeps unused balls
All games will be played in the evening at 5, 6 or 7PM. If you are unable to play at 5pm, please advise us when you register, and we will try to schedule you at 6 or 7PM.
We will use a "Double Elimination Format" for Mixed Doubles, Women's Doubles, Men's Doubles and Women's Singles. So each player or team is guaranteed to play at least 2 matches.
All 4 Tournaments will have an A (4.0 and up) and B (3.5 and down) division, providing enough people register
If there are less than 8 participants registered for any tournament (A or B), a round-robin format will be used.
For Men's Singles, we will used the Classic Format with consolation rounds for division A (4.0 and up) and division B (3.5 and down).
Each tournament draw will be available to see on our website and outside of the clubhouse. They will be updated as the tournaments progress.
Players should ensure that they are available for the full opening weekend of the tournament. Small adjustments in match times can be considered but only if both players/teams agree.
Matches must be completed so as not to delay the next round. Otherwise, the player/team asking for the delay will have to forfeit the game.
Players are asked to contact their opponents directly if they wish to make a change and then advise the clubhouse staff in order to reserve a court.
Except for the semi-finals and finals, all matches will be a pro set of first to eight games, winning by two games. If the score reaches 7-7, a regular tiebreak is played, the winner being the first to reach 7 points, winning by 2 points.
Both A and B semi-final and final matches will be two out of three sets. If tied at one set each, the third set will be a “super tiebreak”, that is, the winner is the first to reach 10 points, winning by 2 points.
Rules of Play
Players are reminded that they are responsible for calls on their side of the net, and the opposing player/team must accept their decision. If there is any doubt, normal etiquette is to give the opponent the benefit of the doubt. Players should avoid replaying a point, though this is always an option if both sides agree.
If a game is stopped due to failing light, the score will be carried over to the next day.
We will do our best to arrange for an umpire for the final matches.
These events are intended for full members. Club pros and social members are not eligible to participate.
