Arranging Games:

If a player texts you to arrange a match, please reply as soon as possible.


If a player, for whatever reason, cannot play a match, a walkover is given to the opponent. The player giving the walkover should write w/o in the scoreboard beside their name. The player receiving the w/o should write 2 in the scoreboard beside their name.


The winner of every match is responsible for writing up the scores. Score 1 point for every set you win. (A championship tie-break is considered as being 1 set.) Every player who participates in a match is awarded 1 bonus point per match.

All points are added up after the deadline, and players’ positions on the ladder are adjusted accordingly. Where scores are tied in any scoreboard, the player who beat the other in their match finishes ahead.


If a player does not reply to ANY texts, try CALLING and sorting it out.

If you cannot play your matches within the time-frame allowed ( 4 weeks this round ), and do not reply to texts, it may be necessary to eliminate you from the ladder with a possible chance to rejoin only if a place becomes available.
