The committee will form groups of four based on rating.
Before the match: Members of each group should negotiate the match time and court by themselves (recommended to choose a court near Dana Point).
If a member cannot participate in the match or if there is any other reason that prevents the group from coordinating, they can find a substitute player by themselves or contact the committee, and the committee will make appropriate arrangements accordingly.
During the match: Please bring your own match ball on the day of the match. Four players in a group will play three sets of doubles, rotating partners after each set, following USTA rules.
(1) The first player to win six games wins one set.
(2) When both sides have won five games each, the side with a net winning of two games wins one set.
(3) When both sides have won six games each, a tiebreaker (7 points) will be played.
After the match: Members of each group should appoint one person to report the scores via the GTN website before the deadline.
If a group of four fails to complete all matches due to unforeseeable circumstances, the incomplete sets should be recorded as forfeits.
If someone is injured and unable to continue during the match, the injured player's score for the remaining games of the current set will be recorded as zero.
The remaining incomplete sets should be arranged by the two teams themselves, and can be completed on a different day, or the injured team can forfeit.
Finally, please abide by the rules of the court, play the game in a civilized manner, and have a happy match. The organizers are not responsible for any responsibility. The final interpretation of the rules belongs to the committee, and any form of feedback is welcome.
