  Rules
1 Finals day is Saturday 07 September 2019, from noon.  An exact schedule of ties will be agreed nearer the time. 
2 All entrants must be playing tennis members of the club;
3 Ties can be arranged by either party but ultimately arrangement of each tie is the responsibility of the person who won the round before in the draw or the first person named in a tie – the Challenger;
4 The Challenger must offer at least two dates;
5 If the Challenger offers three dates and none are suitable, the Challenger may seek to claim the tie (although you should all make efforts to find a mutually convenient time). Please refer such situations to the tournament referee;
6 It is the responsibility of the Challenger to book the court for the tie. Competition ties take precedence for court time during the tournament period;
7 Competitors are reminded that they must scratch before reaching the final if they cannot play on finals day;
8 Ties should be commenced and completed promptly, within the timescale set out in the draw. Any need to extend beyond the last date for any round should be referred to the tournament referee;
9 Open ties are best of three sets; the first two sets are tie-break sets; the third set, if required, is a long set;
10 Handicap ties are the best of three long sets;
11 Entrants for the Veterans tournament must have a combined age of 100.  There are no other barriers to entry based on age.
12 It is hoped that good sportsmanship and common sense will prevail! However if there are any difficulties please feel free to contact the referee. In all cases of dispute, the referee’s decision is final;
