Entries:
We are asking that each school provide us with the entries and seeding information no later than Monday, March 14. Seeding information may include, head to head wins over other district opponents, UTR rankings, or USTA rankings. This will give us the information and allow us the time that we need to create the draws and have them back to you by Wednesday, March 16, and everyone will have until Friday, March 18, for approval of the draws.

The draws are Girls Singles, Girls Doubles, Boys Singles and Boys Doubles.
Please send entries to AD Barry Chamberlin [email protected] and SMH Tennis Head Coach Lisa Westergard [email protected]

The top 3 from each draw will advance to state. We will need to play out for 5th/6th place to ensure we have plenty of alternates for the state championship, especially in the world of COVID. To ensure everyone will get to play two matches, we will have a consolation draw, even though the consolation draw will not advance.

Substitutions:
• In doubles, the tournament director will allow an alternate to substitute for one of the doubles players in case of injury, illness, or loss of academic eligibility.
• You can name either 1 alternate for both doubles teams or 1 alternate per doubles team.
• The alternate must be named before the District Competition. The same individual must be the alternate at the State Tournament.
• A school may not substitute for a singles player or an entire doubles team.
• After the tournament has begun, substitutions are not permitted.
• If a singles player or a doubles team, who has qualified for the state tournament, cannot participate in all or part of the tournament; that school’s coach is responsible for notifying the district alternate(s) so that the alternate(s) may compete at the State Tournament. The coach is also responsible for notifying the District President of the change.
• Any qualifying player who knows in advance that he/she cannot finish the State Tournament, should yield to the district alternate as described above. This is to prevent players from coming to State, playing one or two rounds, then pulling out; resulting in a forfeit in an advanced round at the State Tournament. Schools will be charged a fee equal to or in excess of the entry fee for all no shows.

Point system: The following is the point system to determine the team district champions:
• One (1) point for each round played + 1.5 points to the winner of each round.
• A bye is considered a victory and points will be awarded to the advancing team.
• No points will be awarded to the defaulting team if they do not play the round. The “winning” team will receive points.
• Backside (consolation) draw matches shall score 1 point for the match and .5 points for a victory.
• Total points (singles and doubles) per school determine team standings in Boys and Girls Divisions.
• If the points are equal starting from a round of 16, count the total sets won.
• If the total sets are equal, starting from a round of 16, count the total games won.
• If the total games won are equal, then head-on matches will determine who wins.
• If there is still a tie, count the number of players or doubles teams that have advanced to the semi-finals.
• If there is still a tie, count the number of players or doubles teams that have advanced to the quarterfinal.
• If there is still a tie, a coin toss shall determine the winner.

Entry Fee:
We are also requesting that every school pay an entry fee of $20 per individual player entered to help cover the overall cost of the tournament (court rental, officials and trophies/medals). We will provide District Champion plaques for the winning boys and girls teams. We will also provide medals for the district champions and district runner up for each draw. Please submit the check to Saint Mary’s Hall, Attn: Barry Chamberlin-Athletics. We are requesting the checks by Monday, March 21st.
