  • Seasonal and final
    tournaments
    :
    The first three tournaments are seasonal tournaments. The last tournament
    is the final tournament. The total score from the seasonal tournaments
    decides the team seeding/ID of final tournament. The results of final
    tournament will be used for award and the initial seeding for the
    following year.
  • First tournament: Initial team seeding
    will base on the final results of the previous year. All new teams will be
    ranked lower than teams from last year. The seeding of new teams is based
    on the tournament director’s judgment.
  • Seasonal tournaments: The results (team
    score) of the previous seasonal tournament are used to determine the team
    seeding/ID of the next tournament. Teams at 3rd and 4th
    place in A league of the previous tournament will be 1st and 2nd
    seeds in B league for the next tournament. Teams at 1st and 2nd
    place in B league of the previous tournament will be 3rd and 4th
    seeds in A league for the next tournament.
  • Final tournament: The total scores of
    all (3) seasonal tournaments are used to decide the team seeding/ID of the
    final tournament. The 4 teams with higher scores will be in A league and
    the other 4 teams will be in B league. Teams with higher scores will have
    higher seeds (lower ID). Players must play at least one time in the
    seasonal tournament to be qualified to play in the final. No bonus points
    are granted in the final tournament. Top two teams with higher scores in
    final of both A and B leagues will be awarded.

Appendix A: WACTA Team Tennis Series Tournament Match Rules

  1. Unless otherwise specified, all USTA rules will govern
    all play.
  2. Each match consists of 12 games. No AD scoring will be
    used during the tournament. The team that wins 4 points first in a game is
    the winner of that game. When the game score reaches 40 ALL, if at all
    possible, the extra point should be played in a way that the receiving
    player and the serving player are of the same gender; otherwise the
    receiving team can choose (DEUCE court or AD court) to receive the last
    serve. ALL 12 GAMES MUST BE PLAYED IN THE ROUND ROBIN. DO NOT PLAY
    FURTHER SHOULD THE GAME SCORE REACH 6 - 6.
    Point system will ONLY
    be used in the Round Robin for team score.
  3. To ensure the completion of the entire tournament is on
    time and all the matches are on schedule, players for whom their match is
    scheduled next should be ready on the designated court as soon as it
    becomes available. NO SCHEDULE CHANGE AT ANY TIME. THE
    PRE-MATCH WARM-UP SHOULD BE NO MORE THAN TEN MINUTES. NO PRE-MATCH WARM-UP
    IS ALLOWED AFTER YOU’RE THE FIRST ROUND ROBIN MATCH.
    The team, which
    is late for a match, will be penalized. The team, which is late for 10 minutes,
    will forfeit a game. Being 15 minutes late will result in the loss of 2
    games. Being 20 minutes or more will forfeit the match. The final scores
    of the forfeited match will be recorded as 12 - 0. In order to save
    time, teams switch court only at the end of 6th game in the match.
    Receivers are allowed to change sides (deuce/ad) after switch court.
    Before the match starts toss to decide which team to serve first, and the
    other team decide which side of court to play.
  4. Please follow the USTA rule 8, DO NOT FOOT FAULT. The
    receiver, or his partner, may appeal to server for foot faults. The
    receiver, or his partner, may request the official to call foot faults
    after such effort has failed and the foot-faulting is so flagrant as to be
    clearly perceptible from the Receiver's side. Four Court Coordinators will
    be assigned as tournament officials to record match score, explain rules,
    and resolve all match related issues.
  5. Please bring the score sheet and tennis balls to the
    tournament director after your round robin matches are finished
    .

The Following are excerpts of USTA rules apply in any
match conducted without officials:

  1. Once you have entered a tournament, honor your
    commitment to play.
  2. Play must be continuous. Attempts to stall or extend
    rest periods for a purpose to recovering from a loss of physical condition
    (such as cramps or exhaustion) are illegal.
  3. Intentional distractions that interfere with your
    opponent's effort to play the ball are against the rule.
  4. Spectators, including family members, friends and
    coaches are welcome to watch but should have no involvement of any kind
    during the match.
  5. Players are expected to put forth a full and honest
    effort regardless of the score or expected
    outcome.
  6. If you have any doubt as to whether a ball is out or
    good, you must give your opponent the benefit of the doubt and play the
    ball as good. You should not play a let.
  7. It is your obligation to call balls on your side, to
    help your opponent make calls when the opponent requests it, and to call
    against yourself (with the exception of a 1st serve) any ball you clearly
    see out on your opponent's side of net.
  8. Any Out or LET call must be made instantaneously,
    otherwise, the ball continuous in play.
  9. Do NOT enlist the aid of spectator in making line
    calls.
  10. If you call a ball out and then realize it was good
    during serving a ball, you should correct your call and replay the point.
  11. To avoid controversy over the score, the SERVER should
    announce the SET score (e.g. 4-2) before starting a game and the game
    score (e.g. 40-15) prior to serving each point.
  12. Foot faults are not allowed.
    During the semifinal and final matches, there might be an umpire at each
    court who will make calls when a foot-fault or an ambiguous call occurs.
  13. GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP SHALL BE OBSERVED AT ALL TIME.

WACTA 2008 CapStar Summer Ladder Tournament Rules


The 2008 CapStar Summer Ladder Event is here! Many thanks go to Mr. John Lin, president of CapStar Commercial Realty, for his sponsorship of this great event. The 2008 CapStar Summer Ladder will run from May 10th through August 9th. The Ladder will take a maximum of 40 registered teams. They will be assigned initial ranking and will be divided into 5 divisions. There will be four indoor tournaments held at the Four Seasons Tennis Club on the following dates: May 10th, June 14th, July 19th, and August 9th. In between the indoor tournaments, every team is encouraged to challenge other teams and accept as many challenges from other teams as possible. Please read the following carefully regarding Ladder rules.

Initial Rankings

The 40 teams will be given an initial ranking once registration is completed. The initial ranking will be based on the combination of skill-level of both players for each team except for tie situation. If there is a tie in skill-level between 2 teams, the tie breaker is as follows: 1) the team that participated in last year's Ladder is favored over the new team, 2) if both teams participated in last year’s Ladder, the higher ranked team at the end of last year’s Ladder is favored, 3) if neither team participated in last year’s Ladder, then the Tournament Director is authorized to randomly rank the two teams. The skill-level rating for any mixed team is increased by 0.7 and the skill-level rating for a men’s team is increased by 1.4, as compared to the skill-level rating for a women’s team (e.g., a men’s doubles team with both members rated at 4.5 has a combined rating of 10.4, [4.5 + 4.5 + 1.4] whereas a mixed doubles team with both members rated at 4.5 has a combined rating of only 9.7 [4.5 + 4.5 + 0.7]).

  • Generally, all teams (or number of playoff teams at least) should be ranked in
    accordance with their previous record and skill and then placed into the round-robin
    format accordingly. It is best to get some input about the ranking or seeding of each team
    from some of the senior members and/or the rating committee.
  • Top 2 teams of each group are in the playoffs, in addition to Categories (d) and (f),
    which have 2 more wild cards.
  • Playoff format is based upon two rules




(i) Top two teams in the same round-robin group (both in playoff) are not in the same
half of the playoff schedule; and




    1. After round-robin matches, the newest seeds are reassigned based upon the round-robin
      results. First-half seed teams do NOT play against each other in each round. For instance,
      seeds 1-4 are assigned in each quarter-bracket in quarter-final matches as well as seeds
      1-2 are in different half-bracket in semi-final matches.
    2. Higher seeds have priority to receive a bye in the 1st round playoff.
  • W1 and W2 are determined in accordance with the following criteria during Round Robin
    matches.
    1. The top two teams with the best record among all of No. 3 teams of each group are
      selected.
    2. Each of two wild card teams do not play against the team which is from the same Round
      Robin group, for the 1st round playoff.
    3. W1 has better record than W2, while criterion (ii) is met.
    4. Other issues can be governed by the rules specified by the Tournament Director.
