There will be a limited amount of feed in matches due to both court space and timing.

We do not have referees, which allows more entry fee revenue to go toward prize money.
These Rules of Civility will help you to avoid any difficulties and speed up play:
1. Play balls that are close to the line as you would in a 'friendly' match.
2. Keep breaks very short between sets or before a 3rd set tiebreaker (no more than 2 minutes).
3. No coaching during the match.
4. Quickly resolve any dispute amicably about the score or the rules with your opponent.
