Each Club team consists of two doubles teams (four players) from any two of the combined NTRP levels of 5.0* and below, 6.0 and below, 7.0 and below, 8.0 and below or 8.5 and below. A Club may have more than one four-player team representing them. Team rosters are submitted before the tournament begins.
*If the 5.0 division is too small to provide competitive plan, the 5.0 division players will move up to the 6.0 division or they may cancel with a full entry fee refund.
First round winners move to the right on the draw and first round losers move to the left (consolation). Teams are then paired by pulling winners up and dropping the losers down on each side of the draw for a minimum of three more rounds, or until one team remains undefeated. The format allows for protections of same Club and same city pairings. If a same Club or same city pairing occurs in the bracketing on subsequent rounds, a flip is made with the next bracket to ensure protections until final rounds require a same Club/same city match.
Two points are earned for each match won until a team loses. After a loss, one point is earned for each win. If a division requires more than four rounds to determine the individual winner, team points for final team standings will be computed from the last round and back, for four rounds. This ensures equal point contributions of all flights for the final team standings. Ties in the final Club standings will be broken by: 1) head-to-head results, 2) fewest matches lost, 3) fewest sets lost, 4) fewest games lost.
Winner | Eight Points
Finalist(s) | Six Points
Semi-Finalist | Five Points
Quarter-Finalist | Four Points
