To ensure the team arrives at the correct venue at least 10 minutes prior to the scheduled time, to warm up. Match play must commence on time. If a set is unable to be started on time due to the late arrival of players, a forfeit may be claimed for that set if the delay exceeds fifteen minutes from the scheduled start.
To ensure the team has a full complement of players each week.
Each team must provide two new or good quality used balls each week. Division1-5 to use yellow balls, division 6 and below to use green low compression balls.
All players must be registered with Tennis ACT and be Club members.
Ensure that adult supervision is provided for the duration of the match each week. There should be one adult supervisor per team. The supervisor should ensure that other parents remain off the court at all times and refrain from interfering when matches are being played.
Players cannot always resolve problems without the assistance of a team supervisor. Supervisors may go on court to umpire, adjudicate or assist players who have difficulty scoring and to help resolve any dispute.
In the event of wet weather, the visiting team supervisor should contact the home team supervisor to discuss the likelihood of a washout.
Where teams are scheduled to play at courts where neither could have firsthand knowledge of conditions, both teams should arrive prepared to play.
In the event of a washout or forfeit, the home team must enter a result form indicating grade, teams, venue and declaring a washout or forfeit – failure to enter a result may result in loss of points.
The home team captain is responsible for providing a result each round, and ensuring it is entered correctly and confirmed by both captains.
