SUPER SPORTS TouchTennis Tournament 1
FORMAT OF PLAY
Individuals entered will be drawn from a hat and placed in groups of 5 per court for the round robin part of the tournament.
Each match in the round robin stage will be best of 3 sets, with each set being first to 4 games, with sudden death deuce where the receiver can choose the side to be served too.
If the scoring goes to 3-3 in games, its two clear games first to 5. If 4-4, tie break to 5 points with sudden death at 4-4 in the tiebreak regardless of who is serving.
Once the ball is thrown for a serve, it must be hit or else it is a fault.
There is only one serve in touchtennis, not two.
There are no lets in touchtennis, if the ball clips the net and goes in on a serve – tough luck!
You may throw your racquet to a ball in touchtennis, and use your body parts thereafter if you are successful. You may touch the net with yourself or your racquet, as long as the base of the net does not move.
Swap sides as per normal tennis.
Once the match is finished, players need to hand in their score to the organizer.
Points will be allocated as follows: 3 points for a win, 1 point for a best of 3 sets defeat and 0 points for a straight sets defeat.
The top two individuals with the most points from each court will advance to the knock out stage – time restrictions will determine how many players will advance to the knock out.
In the event of players having equal points after the round robin, the winner of the head-to-head result will advance, if this was a draw, then the player who won the most games in all matches will advance and if this is still tied, then a spin of the racket will decide who advances.
Players advancing through to the knockout stages will have their names placed on the draw sheet in pre determined positions.
Each match in the knock out stage will be best of 3 touchtennis sets with the final being best of 5 touchtennis sets if time permits.
Players who do not make it through to the knockout stages will be able to continue playing in the form of friendly matches.
