 Regional Representation:

  1. Open number of individuals per age group in each gender per region in singles, doubles and mixed doubles.
  2. Each individual may enter only three events.

Eligibility: Open to all levels 

Format: Round Robin; however the host community reserves the right to alter the competition to accommodate a large draw. 

 Winners in all rounds will be determined by the number of sets or, in a tie situation, the lesser number of games lost will be used to break the tie. If, by any chance, losses are identical, the victorious player of the matching involving the tied players will be declared the winner. 

 All matches will consist of a set to 8 games. In the event of a 7 - 7 tie, the tie will be broken by the 12 point tie breaker system. 

 12-Point Tie Breaker System

 Singles

  1. A player who first wins 7 (no add scoring) points will win the game and the set provided he/she leads by a margin of 2 points. If the score reaches 6 points all, the games will be used throughout the tie break game.
  2. The player whose turn it is to serve will be the server for the first point. His/her opponent will be the server for the second and third points. Thereafter, each player will serve alternately for 2 consecutive points until the winner of the game and set have been decided.
  3. From the first point, each service will be delivered alternately from the right and left courts, beginning from the right court. If service from a wrong half of a court occurs and is undetected, all play resulting from the wrong service will stand, but the inaccuracy of station will be corrected as soon as it has been discovered.
  4. Players will change ends after every 6 points and at the conclusion of the break game. 

Doubles

In doubles, the procedure for singles will apply. The player whose turn it is to serve will be the server for the first point. Thereafter, each player will serve in rotation for 2 points, in the same order as previously in that set, until the winners of the game and set have been decided. Rules and Regulations:

  1. Standard tennis rules and regulations as outlined in Tennis Canada’s “Rules of the Court” shall apply.
  2. All participants must be ready to play when called. The 15 minute default rule shall apply.
  3. Every athlete must be able to produce appropriate identification at all times.
  4. The Southern Alberta Summer Games has a Zero Tolerance Harassment Policy. If a competitor, coach, parent or spectator is abusive in any way towards officials, other competitors or volunteers, they will immediately be ejected from competition.

 Registration Deadline: Registration Deadline as designated by your Regional Director 

All registrations are done through your Regional Director, who will determine the Regional Deadline. The registration fee must also be submitted to your Regional Director. Signed consent forms must accompany the waivers. No late registrations will be accepted. 

 Events will be cancelled if there are less than two individuals or teams registered. Should any event be cancelled due to lack of registrations, the athletes being affected by the cancellation will be given an opportunity to reregister in another suitable category provided that event is scheduled to run.
