Rules


The rules of the International Tennis Federation will operate during the tournament.



Coaching


Coaching during a game will not be allowed.



Scoring


There will be no umpires. Players will be responsible for keeping their own score which should be done aloud to avoid confusion. Players will toss a coin at the beginning of every match - the winner has the choice of whether to serve first or the choice of ends. There will be no changing of ends during the match. The match will be played on a continuous score basis with one point for each rally (i.e. no games and sets) and the score when the signal is sounded will determine the result i.e. the point in progress will not count. In singles play, the first person to serve will have 2 serves, the second person to serve will also have two serves but thereafter the serve will change after every 4 serves. In doubles play, the usual service rotation will be in operation; during the first round of serving the server will have 2 serves but thereafter the serve will change after every 4 serves.

On time


Players must be on time for their game. Play should start immediately the signal sounds. Play should stop immediately the signal sounds 25 minutes later - the point being played does NOT count. Players then have 2-3 minutes to clean the court and to return the balls to the can. Balls must be left on the court.



Sportmanship


The N.E.C.I.S. organisation values good sportsmanship very highly ! If players cannot agree on a call, they should play a let. Always be fair and honest when scoring.



Behaviour


Please remember that at no time during a N.E.C.I.S. Tournament will participating athletes be allowed to smoke, use drugs or consume alcohol. This behaviour is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. All N.E.C.I.S. rules (including curfew times) will be in operation this weekend.



Tennis Clothing


Players' tennis clothing during tournament play should conform to the standards expected at a private club - it should be clean and presentable.
Cut-off jeans will NOT be allowed. Outside of tournament play the players' clothing should also be smart-casual as expected at a private club. It is the players' own interests to have the correct court shoes.



Courts


The court surface is of carpet. Players should wear indoor tennis shoes. The courts will have to be cleaned at the end of every game.



Awards


Trophies will be awarded to all those players who finish in 1st, 2nd and 3rd places in all the levels for both singles and doubles play. Players finishing in 4th to 8th place will receive a ribbon. Each player will receive a tournament patch. The Kristoffer Danielson trophies will be presented to the Most Outstanding Players (male and female) as voted by the coaches.

Accommodation for students
