Wet Weather Contingency

Written by Kate Falkner.

We have no intention of cancelling the tournament even though rain is forecast this weekend. 

If we think we need to alter the playing format because time is limited due to rainfull the following match arrangements may apply:

  • Saturday games may be changed to 2 set matches as opposed to 3 set matches
  • The normal pattern of best of 3 set matches will be replaced by timed matches.
  • The length of the matches will be determined by the organisers to allow matches to be as long as possible while allowing all matches to be completed in the time available
  • As a guide – if play is disrupted in the morning and then starts at 12.30 with the prospect of play taking place through the afternoon then matches will be 25 minutes in length with a 5 minute break between matches. (5 hour competition – finishing at 5.30)
  • If less time is available, match times and gaps will be reduced to 15 minutes / 5 minutes – allowing all 10 Saturday matches to be played in 3 hours and 20 minutes.
