Rules for MNL Semis and Finals
PLEASE NOTE: Only registered team players who have taken part in at least two (2) matches with that team are eligible to play in the final series of matches. If you cannot field a team with players who are registered in your team, you must speak to Robyn Johnson (details below) so that you can be allocated a suitable player as a substitute.
The competition committee will nominate the higher scoring team in each match as the home team and they will collect the card and the balls. A toss will decide the choice of serving or receiving. To avoid giving either team the advantage, the teams will bring a pre-numbered list of their players (1-4) to write on the card. If this list is not complete then each team is to write on the folded card so the order of players of opposing team cannot be seen.
Matches are to be continued until there is a result. If there is no result by 10.30pm, then play must continue until a winner is determined.
Matches are decided on games won, which is 33 games, and if games are equal, then on sets. If, after 8 sets have been played, the games and sets are equal, one tie-breaker game shall be played between the pairs which play the last set. The winner shall be declared the winners of the match.
FOR THE SEMI-FINALS AND THE FINALS SECOND DEUCE WILL APPLY, i.e. WHEN PLAY REACHES DEUCE FOR THE SECOND TIME, A "SUDDEN DEATH" DEUCE IS PLAYED. THE WINNER OF THE NEXT POINT WINS THE GAME
Both teams are to share in the provision of supper.
Good luck everyone and have fun.

Problems getting players?
If your team is struggling to get players for the night, please try the following, in the following order:
1. Phone all the Pool Players graded for your division or lower. This is the first option, Pool Players should be approached first..
2. Ring the other captains in your division, or a lower division, in case one of them has a player who is rostered off and can play for you.
N.B. Your team may only borrow each player a maximum of two times in a competition, with the exception that a player
from the lowest division can be borrowed a maximum of three times.
3. Borrow a player from another ETDTA competition, provided that person is of a similar playing standard.
Each person can be borrowed a maximum of two times, so would have to be recorded as a Late Registration if used for a third time.
4. Get a friend to play as a One-Time-Player. (OTPs can play once in each competition without having to become ETDTA members).
5. Ring your Divisional Secretary or the Competition Secretary to see if they have a solution.
6. If you try all of this, and you still cannot get a player, then play with just 3 players.The teams will then get to play 32 games on the night..
You have to pay court hire if you forfeit, so you should play as many sets as you can, then can play a few sets of social to get your money's worth.
Please do not forfeit until you have phoned the Competition Secretary or Divisional Secretaries to see if they have any other suggestions.
