Schedules and results:


Competition format

Team tournament for women’s, men’s and mixed teams. Players may only participate in one tournament. All registered teams play a first and second round in groups of 3 and 4. The best teams after the second round then compete in a final round. The 3-team groups play a round-robin. The 4-team groups do not play a round-robin; rather, the two first-round winners compete for places 1 and 2, and the two losing teams for places 3 and 4. This means that all participating teams play two matches per day.

 

Competition rules

The rules of the International Tennis Federation (ITF) apply. Each match is limited to 45 minutes of playing time. Only games played within the specified playing time count for the score. In the event of tied games, the next game breaks the tie. The singles roster is determined according to playing ability. In principle, the following order of play must be observed: Doubles – Singles 1 – Singles 2 (subject to change if the schedule so requires). In mixed doubles, players must serve to opponents of the same gender, i.e. man to man or woman to woman. The captain of the team must ensure that all players arrive at the respective facilities no later than 30 minutes before the starting time and report to the tournament director on site. The match reports and balls will be handed out at the sport venues. The match reports must be handed back to the tournament director immediately after the end of the matches. The official tournament ball is the Wilson US Open ball. Please note that play will be continued indoors in the event of adverse weather conditions. Only clean, non-marking tennis shoes are permitted indoors. For this reason, it is imperative to bring along two pairs of tennis shoes.

 

Scoring

The scoring within the 3-team groups follows the points system (win 2 points – loss 0 points). If two teams have the same number of points, the deciding factors are first the encounter, and then the better game ratio.
