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.
