The official rules of the USTA will be observed as well as the USTA Junior Team Tennis Rules and Regulations. USTA Officials will be on-site to assist if necessary.
The Tournament Committee shall have the right to modify the format of the Gar Glenney Cup in the event that there are unforeseen weather conditions, or any other reason which would necessitate a change in the announced format.
One credentialed coach is allowed to coach per team match. Coaching is only allowed on changeovers and set breaks. No coaching during tiebreak changeovers and the first game of a set.
Each team will play two head-to-head dual matches using the National format of one boys singles, one girls singles, one boys doubles, one girls doubles, and one mixed doubles. In addition to the dual matches, some divisions will combine to play mixed doubles (i.e. NorCal 18U Advanced Team 1 & 2 will combine rosters to field six mixed doubles pairings to compete against SoCal’s 18U Advanced six mixed doubles pairings).
All matches are best two out of three six game regular sets, no ad scoring; a ten point match tiebreaker will be used in lieu of a third set. (A seven point tiebreaker will be used in all games if tied during the set.)
ALL MATCHES IN ALL AGE DIVISIONS COUNT TOWARD THE TOTAL TEAM SCORE. THE FINAL OFFICIAL GAR GLENNEY CUP SCORE WILL BE DETERMINED BY THE TOTAL MATCHES WON, IN ALL AGE DIVISIONS, THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE EVENT.
When players finish a match, all players, win or lose, shall report the score and both coaches are responsible for verifying the scores and signing the match card.
Once each player has been called and there is no response, this player will be put on the clock. At 15:01 minutes after the match has been called, the player is defaulted.
