General Information:

2.1 RULES

The Standard United States Tennis Association (USTA) rules of tennis will be used with a few modifications as outlined below. 


2.2 WARMUPS

A 5 (Five) minute warmup is allowed and encouraged.   After that players will be asked to begin as we have many sets to play in a relatively short period of time.


2.3 MATCH FORMAT

Each Match will consist of 2 singles players and 3 doubles teams of 2 players.

Captain (or designated fill-in in his/her absence) is responsible for team lineup and must present lineup before start of play.

Substitutions are allowed for players who do not show as long as 5 or more players are present and other rules are followed.

Better player plays #1 singles, and lower level player plays #2 singles.

Best doubles team plays #1 doubles, then #2 and #3, respective of general ability.

A and B ranked players will not be allowed to play #3 doubles.

Both singles and doubles will be one pro set with first to reach 8 games by a margin of 2. 

No ad scoring is 15, 30, 40, game.  At 40-40 (also known as deuce),  one point is played to finish the game. 

At 40-40, the receiving team will choose to receive serve in the deuce court or ad court.

In the event of a 8-8 game score, a Ã???Ã??Ã?¢??first to 7 point tiebreakerÃ???Ã??Ã?¢?? (win by 2 points) is used with USTA rules.    


2.4 TEAM MEMBERS WHO PLAY

All eligible team members present must play.  

No player may play in more than 2 matches. (any combination of singles and doubles)

A minimum of 4 and a maximum of 12 eligible team members will play each week in an official match.

If a team has 4 or fewer players they may play but will receive no points and a loss.

If a team has 5 players present they are official but begin with a score of -4 (minus 4).    They are eligible to win if they make up that deficit.

If a team has between 6-12 players present they are official.   


2.5 SUBSTITUTIONS

Substitutions are allowed and can be used when a team has 5 or more players present.

All substitutions are made when one team first reaches 4 (four) games.    The score at that point will be 4-0, 4-1, 4-2, or 4-3.


2.6 TEAM SCORING

We keep team score by total games won.   Team that wins the most games is the winner.   A tie score is possible.

Example with Baby Got Backhand (BB) and Total Topspin (TT):

# 1 Singles   BB 8 -- TT 6

#2 Singles    BB 8 -- TT 6

#1 Doubles BB 4 -- TT 8

#2 Doubles BB 9 �??�?�¢?? TT 8

#3 Doubles BB 2 �??�?�¢?? TT 8

Total Games Won BB 31 -  TT 36

Even though BB won 3 out of 5 sets --- TT WINS the overall match by a score of 36-31.

As you can see from the example above �??�?�¢?? every game counts.


2.7 ATTIRE

All players must wear a Stonewall current season tennis shirt to play.   Shorts, pants, or a tennis skirt must also be worn (provided by each player).

T-shirts may be cut at the sleeves, neckline, mid-riff, etc. Ã???Ã??Ã?¢?? as long as all Stonewall and sponsor information is fully visible.  

In the event of colder weather, long sleeves may be worn under the Stonewall T-Shirt. 

Tennis shoes MUST be worn.  Any flat bottom athletic shoe is considered appropriate for tennis.  Shoes with spikes or heavy tread are not permitted.

Any other wardrobe modifications must be approved in advanced by the Stonewall Tennis Director. 


2.8 LINE CALLS and OTHER DISPUTES

The serving team is responsible for calling the game score.   

In the event the serving team forgets the score, they may ask opponents or any spectators or referees present for assistance.
