  • At the end of each night, the player who finished in first place (based on their wins, sets taken and points) is then promoted up a court and the losing player is demoted down a court (obviously there are no changes made to the top of Court 1 and bottom of Court 12).

What if you need a fill-in?

You are required to find your own fill-in to play for you if you are unavailable to play on any given week. In the lightning roster, the STBA must be informed of who the fill-in is prior to games commencing on the evening, and it must be marked on the sheet for the night’s games. Fill-ins cannot be promoted, however they can still be demoted. Click here if you would like to register as a fill-in.
