Here are some things to remember when playing on hot days…

*HYDRATION lS IMPORTANT!! You need to drink plenty of fluids to hydrate so your body can be regulated to the exposure of heat and humidity. Pros advise that we hydrate well, before match day (previous day & evening).

*BE PREPARED: Some players pack a cooler with extra drinks, electrolytes, and cooling towels to help cool down between changeover games/sets. Some also bring a light snack (i.e., banana, sports bar etc.). Use and reapply sunscreen. Perhaps bring an umbrella with you to have some shade during breaks. You know best what you may need, plan ahead.

*LISTEN TO YOUR BODY!! Symptoms to look out for include…

Cool, moist skin with goose bumps when in the heat

Heavy sweating

Faintness

Dizziness

Fatigue

Weak, rapid pulse

Low blood pressure upon standing

Muscle cramps

Nausea

Headache

*3rd SET REMINDER: If you split sets, a full 3rd set is required to determine match winner. STL rules allow a 10-minute break between 2nd and 3rd sets only; otherwise, play must be continuous throughout the match as specified in USTA rules. Note that coaching is only permitted during this 10-minute break. Please also use this time to cool down.

If you begin to experience heat exhaustion...stop all activity and rest. Move to a cooler spot and drink plenty of water/sports drinks. Avoid caffeine. Remove hat and shoes to help cool down faster. Have other players seek assistance for you. You may take a medical timeout if you are experiencing medical issues (i.e. injury, illness, heat-related condition or cramping NOT general fatigue or an untreatable condition).

For medical timeouts, STL defers to USTA Rules. See USTA Regulations III.E. and Table 13 for details, but generally, the medical timeout rule consists of evaluation time plus a maximum of 3 minutes of treatment time for a treatable medical condition. The maximum time allowed for evaluation and treatment is 15 minutes.

Here is a link with some more helpful information: https://www.mayoclinic.org/first-aid/first-aid-heat-exhaustion/basics/art-20056651. Review the information provided but do your own research, as well, to prepare yourself. If you have any health questions, seek advice from your medical provider. If you believe there is a safety issue with playing, make the decision that you feel is best for you. If you have to retire, please do so. Your health and safety are of the utmost importance!

LUCK OF THE DRAW (LOD) SCORING EXPLANATION

In a division with LOD matches, each team will play some teams twice. The LOD points entered in the yellow boxes on the score card on Topdog will be the "best" score (number of slots won) for each team, over the two matches played, up to a maximum of 4 total. A team can only earn additional points in the second LOD match, if they win more slots than they did in the first match.

Example: If Team A wins 3-1 in the first match against Team B, Team A would need to win 4-0 in the second match, in order to earn any additional points. If Team A did win 4-0, in the second match, Team A would earn 1 additional point. If the teams split 2-2 in the first match, at second match a team could only "earn" additional points if they won 3-1 (would earn 1 more point) or 4-0 (would earn 2 more points). If the teams split 2-2 again, in the second match, neither team would receive any additional LOD points and points would be entered as 0-0.

Captains must enter LOD points, in the yellow boxes, each week, regardless of whether they play a team once or twice. For each match, until the LOD 2nd matches, simply enter points reflecting the number of slots won per team, in the yellow boxes. For LOD second matches, use the chart below, or do some simple math based on above example, to figure out the points to enter. Topdog will automatically add the LOD points from first and second matches, to finalize overall points per team and determine the division winner.

Adding a player after the Captain's Meeting

NEW PLAYER PROFILES or requests to add on level players, which are presented after the Captain's Meeting, should be submitted to your level Coordinator, along with the league registration fee. The Coordinator will forward registration fee to the STL Treasurer. Players will NOT be added to a team roster until payment is received by the Treasurer. If there is a time contraint, you may need to bring payment to Treasurer. Coordinator will process player submission and once player is approved, will be forwarded to the Topdog Administrator to be entered into Topdog.

COMAN TIEBREAK FORMAT

When a set score reaches 6-6, play a 7-point tiebreaker: first to 7 points by 2 points wins "game" and "set."

Points are scored: “zero,” “1,” “2,” “3,” etc.

The Coman tiebreak ensures that players will always serve from the same side.

page1image3752

  • Do not change sides to start the tiebreak because your set score is even at 6-6.

  • Preserve the order of serving since this is the final game of the set – remember which team served first in tie break game.

  • Serve the first point from the deuce court.

  • Change sides after the first point and then every four points (1, 5, 9, 13, 17, 21, etc.).

  • Each server, after the first server, serves twice starting from the ad court.

  • The tiebreak is considered a single game, so play is continuous and teams do not stop for toweling, water, etc., when changing sides.

  • At the conclusion of the tiebreak, the score for the set is 7-6. The number of games is now odd, so change sides if there will be another set.

  • For the next set, the first server is a member of the team who received first in the tiebreak game.

    To Help You Remember:

  • When Point Score is Even: The point is served from the deuce court.

  • When Point Score is Odd: The point is served from the ad court.
