SSTC Tournament 2021
SSTC tournament matches are well underway and everyone is enjoying analyzing the tournament match-ups, sizing up future opponents, having fun competitions and lots of laughs along the way. For all our members competing, please remember at the end of your match to indicate the winners on the draw sheet posted in the glass display board located on the upper tennis courts. If you are the team moving ahead, please check the draw sheet in the display case for who your next opponents will be and schedule your match by the date indicated.
Many thanks to all our members who registered for the 2021 club tournament!! After a year away from tournament play there was a great response!! 2021 will be the largest Singles Tournament the club has ever had and we have some of the largest Doubles tournament draws as well! We are delighted by the participation! The tournaments continue to be a wonderful way to renew acquaintances and meet new people.
The final matches are planed to be played August 28th & 29th – always a fun time to get the club membership out to cheer on our finalists. More details will be communicated closer to finals weekend.
Good luck to all our tournament participants and have fun!!
For those members participating in the tournament here are a few reminders of the rules.
1. You are responsible for booking your own matches. Please communicate with your partner and opponents to schedule. The email addresses can be found in this email, phone numbers & emails in the SSCA 2021 Member Directory recently mailed to you, and behind the login on the SSCA web site.
2. Matches are to be played by the dates indicated in the top column of each round. If you cannot schedule your match by that date, please contact Jackie or John and we will work towards an accommodation. If that’s not possible, one side will default to keep the tournament timing on track.
3. There are no substitutions of partners after the first match has been played. If one of your team is injured before your first round match is played we will look for a substitute for you. If one of you is unavailable after the first round, your team will withdraw from the tournament.
4. Matches are best 2 out of 3 sets. Tiebreakers are played at 6-6 with the first team to reach 7 points and hold a 2 point advantage declared the winner of a set.
