The players will get 4 matches over the course of the weekend assuming no defaults or injuries. Players play to a place and each final placement has points associated with it for the overall Team Score which will determine the Final Standings.

Refs: previous match on court mark and ref. Loser marks, winner refs. The ref makes all calls and the refs call is final.  The marker does not make up/down calls, that is a common misunderstanding of the rules. The refs call is final on all things. The ref can of course ask the marker for help.

We will be using the live Ipad scoring system at each court.
