Match Format

A team match is made up of 5 events:

  1. Boys' Singles
  2. Girls' Singles
  3. Boys' Doubles
  4. Girls' Doubles
  5. Mixed Doubles

A team is made up of 3 boys and 3 girls.

  1. If a team is reduced to 2 players of a given gender, they must default the singles event in which they are short a player in order to affect the fewest number of players.
  2. A team may use different individual players for every event in the team match or may choose to play one boy and/or one girl twice, in the mixed doubles position only.  A team may choose to play individual players twice regardless the number of players on the roster.  Players who have played twice in a team match may not play twice again until after three rounds of team matches have been completed.  The "play twice" rotation begins again in the Playoff and Final flights.
  3. If a player on a qualifying team is unable to participate, a substitute player may be added to the qualifying team's roster only in order to meet the minimum team requirement.  No more than 1 boy or 1 girl may be added to the team roster.  Substitutes added to a roster must have played on a team in the same local season and meet all other eligibility requirements.

Individual Match Scoring

  • 10 & Under - No-ad scoring: best 2 out of 3 short sets (first to 4 games), with a 7-point match tiebreak in lieu of a 3rd set (only have to win by 1 in set and tiebreak).
  • 12 & Under - No-ad scoring: best 2 out of 3 short sets (4 games), with a 10-point match tiebreak in lieu of a 3rd set (7-point tiebreak to be played at 3 games all).
  • 14 & Under to 18 & Under - No-ad scoring: best 2 our of 3 short sets (6 games), with a 10-point match tiebreak in lieu of a 3rd set (7-point tiebreak to be played at 5 games all).

Team Match Scoring

  • The team match is scored by cumulative games won from each of the 5 events.  A team scores a point for every game won and 1 point for winning the 3rd set tiebreak.  
  • Team matches may end in a tie.
  • The scoring formats may be altered at the tournament director's discretion.
