AGES

The minimum age is the age you turn that year. If you are 49 years old and will turn 50 in 2020, you can play on the 50+ league in 2020.

A player can participate in a younger league but not in an older league.
For example: If you are 50, you can participate in League A or B as well as in league 40+ and 50+, but you cannot participate in the 60+ or 70 + leagues. Same rule applies for doubles.

SCORE IN MATCHES

All matches are played to the best of 3 sets with standard tiebreak (7 points) in all 3 sets when games are 6-6.
Exception:
The below categories are played in only 2 sets with the third set replaced by a super tiebreak (10 points)
Single Senior league 60+
Single Senior league 70+
Doubles Senior league 120+ (min 50)

REFEREEING

They are no official PTL’s chair umpires nor line judges during regular league matches. The players self-refereeing their own matches.

In case of players disagreeing on a ball call, the rule “your side, your call” applies best.

The ball is called in or out by the player on the court side where the ball bounced last.

Fair play should always prevail and a point can be replayed at any time.

Players are allowed a 90-second rest between end changes. This is extended to two minutes at the end of a set, although at the first changeover of the next set the players do not get a rest.

CODE OF CONDUCT

All PTL Players must also read and follow the Code of Conduct
to ensure the best levels of fair play and sportsmanship when playing PTL.

MATCH PLANNING

The PTL will organise the matches per categories and send a match notification via email and/or message (Line, WhatsApp etc) to the players.

The players must get in contact with each other and choose a date and place to play on the island.

Each match must be played within 2 weeks from the notification from PTL.

Wherever the players decide to play, the cost of the court rental fee must be split equally between the players, unless agreed differently between them.

Fair play and friendly etiquette apply when a player has to postpone a match already planned. Please inform your opponent(s) as early as possible and re-schedule the match together.

Each player must arrive with a can of new balls for their matches. Only new balls only can be used for PTL matches and the players decide between them how many balls to use.

After the match, each player will message the result to PTL indicating the name of the players, the score, the category and the date played:

Khun Boy VS John Smith
6/3, 4/6, 6/4
Senior league 40+
July 15th

RANKING

SINGLES

The ranking is per category, meaning that a player participating in more than one category will have a ranking in each category he or she played.

DOUBLES

In doubles, the ranking is individual, so a player can change partner any time.

The Ranking is the 15-Points League System:

The winner(s) of a match receives 15 points

The loser(s) receives 1 point for each game they win in their best 2 sets.

Example: If a match ends 6-4, 5-7, 6-3, the winner receives 15 points, the loser receives 11 points.

The Above points system also apply for doubles.

If a doubles team wins, both winning players receive 15 points each and each of the losing players receives 1 point for each game they win in their two best sets

DEFAULT PLAYER

In case a player(s) retiring before the end of a match, the opponent(s) will receive 13 points instead of 15 points. The defaulting player(s) receives 0 points.

LIABILITIES

No one at this site or connected with the PTL can take responsibility for the safety or security of players whether playing on the courts or in the facilities associated with the PTL, or elsewhere.

Players compete at their own risk and it is the player’s responsibility to ensure any courts used safe for play.  If they are not, you should not use them and, if appropriate, please report any concerns to whoever is responsible for managing the courts.

Players are solely responsible for court hire, tennis ball provision etc. By playing in the league, players confirm that they are not aware of any medical conditions that would prevent them from taking part in an active sport.
