2017 Phila Area Team Competition
Match scoring is 1 game to 25 no set, up until Finals. Finals will be full 2 out of 3 to 21 match.
A singles player may repeat into doubles, however not into another singles.
A Doubles player may repeat with a different partner.
For example, a 3 player team can field 3 singles, and two doubles with 1 player repeating.
Round robin pool format for initial rounds will be played so teams can face off against a number of other teams
If sufficient teams for multiple pools, then top two advance to elimination playoffs.
Line-up orders must be declared ahead of play (by Wednesday) so draws and timings may be made!
This is essential for scheduling because many players are playing in multiple brackets
and also to help avoid any “stacking” to gain an advantage.
Teams that are coming with “alternates” will be allowed 2 player substitutions per match in singles or
doubles, however the rest of the line-up may not change order. Alternates may sub into any position.
Teams need to declare the order of their 3 singles and 2 doubles in the Open Div along with an alternate format of 3 doubles. Alternates should also be declared however no order is necessary for them. MXD Div needs to declare 2 MXD teams and 1 any gender team along with alternates.
