II. ISSUES RELATED TO PLAYING A MATCH

Sometimes things go wrong and unexpected situations may happen when playing a Tenniscall match in real life. This is how you should behave in such special cases:

  • No Show
    If one of the players does not show up at the agreed match time and location ("no show"), the other player has the right to input a default score of 6-0, 6-0.
  • Retirement
    If one of the players retires from the match (ie. due to injury, etc.), please input the score at the moment of the retirement (for example: 6-3, 4-3) AND check the box "RET" (for "retirement") under the name of the player who retired from the match. The player with the RET mark will be set as loser no matter what the actual score is.
  • Match Suspension
    If a match is suspended (ie. due to rain, or other external circumstances), players should wait to upload the scores until the match is finished at a later stage. Players will continue the match on another day and upload the score only when the match is completed.

III. COURT ETIQUETTE

A few simple tips from our team for less stressful and more fun matches:

  • Matches are self-umpired and should be conducted in the spirit of fair play;
