Re: Tennis Tipping General Rules 2019 | Changes in Red | TT index in post #4
as we talked about it in the Ask the Board thread, here is the detailed written rule about the number of commitments
Number of commitments:
Minimal number of commitments for a tournament to run is 16 players for singles and/or 8 teams for doubles
If a tournament still has less than 8 entries for doubles on Friday before the tournament starts, then the Manager should pair up players to form a 8th team on his own.
However managers are not allowed to pair up players automatically, if they committed explicit for singles only, in this case the managers should ask for their permission first.
Events which have less than 16/8 players/teams at Saturday 6pm CET/CEST (one day before the final deadline) will be cancelled and the players from the cancelled event will be automatically transferred to another ITF tournament in the same week. (Managers should inform the board about it in this case)
