Rule #1: Have fun!!!!

Format: Timed event. Play for 1 hr 30 minutes-including warm-up (no new games after 1 hr 25 minutes). Count the number of games won and lost (no sets) If match is tied when time ends, play a 2 point tiebreaker (except for finals which will be a 7 point tiebreaker).
Mercy rule: If one team is winning by 8 games at any point during the match, then the mercy rule applies and the match is over.
Late Rule: Your opponent gets 1 game for every 5 minutes you are late, as well as choice of side and serve. At 15 minutes past the scheduled match time you forfeit the match.
Consolation matches – not very many open courts, but if you’re interested in an extra match, we will have a sign-up sheet.
This tournament is all about having fun and making a few new friends. Please be generous in line calls and play by the USTA rules of tennis. If you’re unsure of proper procedure, feel free to ask one of the RRTA board members for a ruling.
