  • Your match is scheduled to start at the time indicated on the Draw. Exact time may vary on the day depending on the previous matches.
  • Maximum of 7 min warm up time

  • Please review your scheduled playing time before each match, as draws are subject to change after being posted.
  • Updated results will be available online at the end of each day.
  • Best effort are made to meet everyone’s requests, but cannot guarantee all requests will be fulfilled.

Lateness & Penalties

  • Lateness rules start when your 7 minute warm-up period is complete, following your court being called (court available to play). Players arriving during the warm-up period are not permitted any extension of this period. After that, Tennis BC punctuality rules will be enforced:
    • (A) 5:00 min or less – loss of toss and 1 game.
    • (B) 5:01 to 10:00 min late – loss of toss plus 2 games.
    • (C) 10:01 to 15:00 late – loss of toss plus 3 games.
    • (D) 15:01 min and plus late – default of match.
  • If any player is injured during play and cannot continue within 10 minutes, then that team’s remaining sets go to the other team (e.g. 6-4, 6-0). (Note: an injured player can be replaced at set switch over but it is an automatic walkover for the opposing team.)

Location:

  • Saanich Tennis Club
  • Outside courts may be reserved for tournament matches. 
  • Please account for travel time to your outside court matches
