Sudden Death – the ruling

Following discussion at the AGM, the FTC committee has come up with the following clarification of the ‘sudden death’ rule that the club has employed for a while during social tennis sessions to ensure members aren’t waiting off for too long when all the courts are being used.

The rule will apply when:

  • There are more than four people waiting to play during daylight sessions
  • If one or more person is waiting to play under floodlights .
