Eligibility

Pupils can only take part in one age group throughout the whole competition. The competition is defined as both qualifying events and the finals.

Championship format

This is a two day tournament, competitors will be required for both days.
A compass draw will be used for all age groups where possible (either 32, 16 or 8).
The exact compass draw will be decided once entries have closed and total numbers are confirmed.
IAPS will decide the compass draw for each age group and allocate each team to a draw.
This is to allow maximum play for competitors and to ensure that each team is playing at the correct level.
Some age groups may find there are two draws running simultaneously e.g A and B draws.
Teams will be allocated into a draw based on their joint team ratings.

Match playing format

All matches will follow the FAST4 scoring.
Teams will play one rubber per match.
A rubber is made up of 2 singles and 1 doubles.
E.g. player 1 v player 1 (singles 1), player 2 v player 2 (singles 2), school 1 v school 2 (doubles).

Umpiring and scoring

Players will be expected to score all their matches, as there will be no umpires on court.
Less experienced players can have help scoring by a neutral adult.
LTA officials will be present to help with any queries or discrepancies.
