September Tournament Draw

Welcome to the 2017 MVTC Singles Tournament. We have a good turnout with 23 participants with 3 divisions. Mens’ Division I has 3.5 to 4.5 players. Mens’ Division II has 3.0 to 3.5 players. Women’ Divison ratings range from 2.5 to 4.0. Please understand that there is a wide range from 0.5 to 1.0 difference in ratings in the draws. I did the best I could to balance the draws with the number of entries that we had (for example 3 – 3.5 Men players were moved into Division I). Please see the drawsheets for your start time. Most people will be starting at 8:45 AM. Check-in and warmup time will be 8:15 to 8:45 AM. Please show up early and on time as we want to get started on time at 8:45 AM. Warmup limited to 5-10 min.

Format will be best of 3 sets. 10 point Match Supertiebreaker required for final 3rd set if needed. TO SPEED THINGS ALONG, THE DEFAULT FORMAT WILL BE WORLD TEAM TENNIS SET. NO AD SCORING. AT 3-3 (DEUCE), DECIDING POINT WINS. 1ST PLAYER TO 5 GAMES WINS THE SET. IF TIED AT 4-4, THEN PLAY A REGULAR TIEBREAKER TO 7. IF BOTH PLAYERS AGREE, YOU MAY PLAY A REGULAR SET WITH ADS TO 6. HOWEVER, PLEASE BE AWARE THAT YOU MAY NEED TO PLAY 6 SETS IF YOU MAKE IT TO THE FINALS OR CONSOLATION FINALS. IF ONE PERSON DOES NOT AGREE TO REGULAR SET, THEN YOU MUST PLAY WORLD TEAM TENNIS SET TO 5. 3rd MUST BE SUPERTIEBREAKER TO 10 POINTS. NO 3RD SETS ALLOWED.

PLEASE BRING EXACT CHANGE FOR YOUR PAYMENT

. HAVE FUN!
