Venue & Start Time
All matches will be played at the Empire Stadium, Marine Parade, Petone. The stadium will be open from 6:30pm each interclub night and interclub matches are scheduled to start at 7:00pm. Team captains/players need to pay the team’s night fees and provide the playing order (Premier 1 only) to the duty official before the score sheet will be given out.
It is still a key objective for TTW to ensure interclub contests finish at a reasonable time. Would all teams please be aware of their responsibilities in this area.
Teams consist of three or more players of a similar ability. While only three players from a team can play singles in a contest, a fourth player can be introduced to play in the doubles matches only, regardless of the score in the contest, in place of one of the singles players.
Combined club teams may be allowed, therefore, clubs can enter individuals or pairs of players. All teams are subject to the approval of the TTW Interclub Subcommittee.
The final format is subject to team numbers – it is intended to play eight team grades, if at all possible, over two separate competitions as occurred last year (Series 1 and 2). Grading matches, for all grades, maybe held prior to the beginning of both Series 1 and 2 competitions if required, and at the discretion of the TTW Interclub Subcommittee.
Teams will play 1 contest each week, consisting of 11 matches; three singles for each player and two doubles for the team. Matches will be best of five advantage games to 11 points.
Grade championships will be held for Premier 2, 3 and B grades on 27/28 September. All grade championships are dependent on entries and TTW reserves the right to alter the format to ensure equitable contests.
The TTW Code of Conduct will be enforced in all interclub matches.
TTW requires the use of the – TTNZ adopted – Stag 3 star white ball in all interclub contests. This ‘approved’ ball will be supplied, at no charge, for all interclub contests.
Assuming the use of a format that has playoffs at the end of round robin play, the following points system will be used in all grades:
2 points for a win
1 bonus point for teams losing 5-6
1 bonus point for teams winning a contest 10-1 or 11-0
If the format used is a round robin contest only ie: no playoffs, then the following points system will be used:
2 points for a win
0 points for all losses
Matches will be recorded and used to determine final/playoff places in each series, if two or more teams are equal on points.
