College Rules

Teams are to be comprised of minimum 4 and maximum 8 men, minimum 3 and maximum 6 ladies.

The required players are:

  •  1 men’s singles player
  •  1 ladies’ singles player
  •  2 men’s doubles pairsClub 2
  •  1 ladies’ doubles pair
  •  3 mixed doubles pairs

Players will be allowed to play as many disciplines as the captains require, but may only be part of one pair in each doubles discipline. For example, one player may be the singles player, part of a men’s doubles pair, and part of a mixed doubles pair. Teams will be contesting 16 possible points. Each game will be one end to 21, with the winning side gaining the point for their team. The games are as follows:

  • 1 men’s singles
  • 1 ladies’ singles
  • 4 men’s doubles (each pair plays the 2 opposing pairs)
  • 1 ladies doubles
  • 9 mixed doubles (each pair plays the 3 opposing pairs)

As matches are just one end, players should swap sides at 11 points to compensate for the differing visibility levels on each side of the court.

The order of play shall be as follows: (MS = men’s singles, LS = ladies singles, MD = men’s doubles, LD = ladies doubles, XD = mixed doubles)
