Fill-in Process

Players to follow these steps as early as possible:

  1. Contact players on the reserve list.
  2. If unsuccesssful, find another club player of similar standard.
  3. If still unsuccessful, call Jessica or your coach from Southern Cross Tennis (SCT) ASAP.

Forfeits and Penalties

The following financial penalties may be applied at the discretion of Southern Cross Tennis:

  • If a player asks SCT to find a fill-in without first calling everyone on the fill-in list, they may be charged a $15 free for administrative costs.
  • If a fill-in player cannot be found by the player responsible or SCT:
    • For Tuesday and Wednesday night fixtures: the player responsible may be charged a $60 forfeit fee for the unused court.
    • For Thursday night fixtures: the remaining 7 players are to play their matches (2 each), the unplayed sets are forfeited and the player responsible for the forfeit may be charged a $15 match fee.

Semi-Finals and Finals

Due to the smaller season, if Semi finals / Finals are rained out all efforts will be taken to play the matches on other nights – however if we cannot find a suitable time to play then the Winners / Runner Ups will be calculated by whoever has the top 2 scores at the end of the season.
