Third Set Tie-Break

The Committee is trialling the option of playing a third set tie break (instead of a third set) for the Summer Competition 2012-13 in Ladies Rubbers, Mens Rubbers and Mixed Rubbers. The option to play a third set tie break is to be decided before the start of the match, with both Captains in agreement.
This option does NOT apply for Ladies & Mens singles/doubles matches.

Mobile Phones

As a courtesy to other players, all mobile telephones should be turned to silent for the duration of all matches. Special allowance may be made in the case of medical emergencies.

Matches at Melbourne University Tennis Club

Players cannot park onsite at the University - there is no casual parking, it is all permit parking. The only parking available is in the nearby streets - generally parking is free after 12:30pm on Saturday however again, there are permit zones around the inner city streets so it is necessary to read the signs carefully.

Adverse Weather

In the case of adverse weather, both teams must attend at the venue for play. Score sheets need to be filled in, and names entered into the on-line system.

Heat Outs
It appears that some matches have been declared "heatouts" on a day prior to the date of the match, and that some teams have not arrived at courts. By-law 12 states - "If the temperature should reach 35 degrees C at the appointed starting time or thereafter, play may be stopped at the option of either captain. Any postponement must NOT be arranged before the appointed starting time." By-law 10d also states that all players must be in attendance within 30 minutes of the appointed starting time.
