Tennis Ireland Tournament Rules and Regulations

ENTERING TWO TOURNAMENTS IN THE SAME WEEK

 

All players entering Open tournaments are agreeing to follow Tennis Ireland Rules and Regulations. However, some players seem to be unaware of some of the Rules. It is very important that players and their parents/guardians/coaches read the Rules and comply with them. Failure to do so may result in penalties.

In particular, we would like to bring your attention to the following rule: 

 

5.1.2. A player is specifically prohibited from entering or signifying an intention to enter more than one tournament, match or competition advertised to take place during the same period, except in the case of two events which overlap by no more than two days and then only with the prior written consent of the organiser of the later event. Failure to comply with this rule will result in the loss of any ranking points acquired in any of the tournaments involved. Exception to this Rule are players participating in Irish hosted International events who may enter a concurrent domestic event with the consent of the domestic Tournament Organiser and then in one singles event only .
