Attention Juniors: New Tournament Regulations

February 16, 2007 02:10 PM

Please beware of two new tournament regulations that are slight changes to past procedures:

Regulation IV.A.2 now states: "The referee may penalize a player who is on site for lateness if a court is available and the player has failed to check in at the tournament desk by the scheduled match time."

Friend at Court Comment IV.D.1
"If five matches are scheduled at 10:00 a.m. but only one court is available, the Referee should call all matches shortly before 10:00 a.m. and should start the lateness clock on all players who have not checked in by 10:00 a.m. When more matches are scheduled that there are courts available, the Referee may put the matches out in any order. A player does not escape the lateness penalty because the player's match was one of the last matches to be put on the court. If one of the several matches scheduled at the same time is put out early and when the scheduled time arrives there is no available court, the lateness clock does not start until another court becomes available."
