Sets are eight game sets with no advantage. That is, each set is first to eight games, no tie-break. Players participating in matches must be financial members of the clubs registering them, or a member of our Emergency Pool.

If the temperature reaches 32°C at the appointed starting time or at any time thereafter, play may be stopped at the option of either captain.

There are two seasons each year: Summer and Winter. Both seasons comprise 10 teams per section although approximately every 5 years, to balance available Tuesdays, the Winter season is altered to consist of 8 teams per section.
