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.
