Summer Singles Box League 2022 – Explained + Rules

Singles Box League Explained

It is a mixed singles league, with participants grouped together in boxes of five or six players of a similar standard. Many members participate in the Box League and range from beginners to experienced players. Each player will play against all the players in their box, they have one month to complete the first round, and a second month to complete the second round.

Rules

  • All matches will take the form of 18 games plus a tie-break to 7, tiebreak winner gets 1 point extra for a total of 19 points played.
  • We recommend you to create a Whatsapp group to organise the matches or you can also message your opponents in the Scalasports App
  • Box matches are to be completed within the singles allocation time of 1.5 hours. Short warmups are advised. If you run out of time check the availability of courts to continue, organise another time that suits both of you, or split the score and add it to the Scala Sports App
  • The box league consists of two rounds, players should arrange their own matches, and all the matches from your first must be played by the 14th of August 2022,  while the second round by 14th of September 2022 after this date will not be taken into consideration.
  • The winner must input the result on the ScalaSports App immediately after the match.
  • Box standings will be determined by the points accumulated.
  • At the end of the round, players will be promoted/relegated based on their place in the group. The bottom one or two will be relegated and the top one or two will be promoted.
  • Players, who only played one match excluding walkovers, will automatically be removed from the next edition unless notified to boxleague@bectivetennis.com. (Players who played more than 2 matches in the current league will automatically be included in the next edition. There is no need to notify boxleague@bectivetennis.com.)
  • In the case of injury/unavailability please contact boxleague@bectivetennis.com. Due to the promotion/relegation nature of the league, awarding a walkover is unfair to other members of the box. We will do everything to facilitate the play of a match & will only consider a walkover if the circumstances warrant it.
  • In case of a walkover, the average of the games played will be conceded to the other player.
  • Any questions should be addressed to boxleague@bectivetennis.com
