1.  Inter-Club Regulations
Regulations 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 10, 17, 18, 19, 21 and 23 for Inter-Club Competitions shall be extended to these Competitions as far as they can apply.

2. Eligibility

Club representatives in the Summer Competitions, in addition to satisfying the eligibility criteria of paragraphs 4 and 5 of the Rules and Regulations for Inter-Club Competitions, must have represented their club in the Inter-Club Competitions as follows:

EITHER – Played a minimum of 30% of league matches for one of that club’s teams in the current season to date

        OR – Played a minimum of 30% of league matches for one of that club’s teams in the previous Summer

       OR – Played a minimum of 2 matches in the Winter Season immediately preceding the current season

The above representation does not apply to Junior Cup Competitions. It is sufficient that they are a bona-fide member of the club they are representing. Players shall be eligible for Junior Competitions if they will not reach the age of 15 during the calendar year in which the Competition is held for the age group 14 and Under. However, if they do represent a club in Senior leagues, then they cannot represent a separate club in the Junior Cup Competitions.

Each team player needs to be registered as an LTA Advantage Member (previously BTM) to play in the competitions. This can be obtained by signing up using the link . (Through signing up, each team player should claim their own free World Tennis Number (WTN) conducive to the competitions).

If an ineligible team member by virtue of LTA Advantage Membership (BTM) plays in an inter-club competition or Summer Cup match the player will be disqualified and their opponents awarded any rubbers in which they took part (6-0, 6-0).

3. Representation in each round

Clubs need not be represented by the same player(s) in every round of a particular event, but a player may not represent his or her club in more than one Competition in the same round.

4. Competition Format

Cup Competitions will be conducted on a knock-out basis. The draw will be made by the Council and notified to Clubs by the Cup Competition Secretary, including dates for completion of matches of each round.

5. Finals

Finals will be played on a date and at a venue to be fixed by the Council.

6. Matches

Matches shall be two tie-break sets followed, if necessary, by a match tie-break (first to 10 points but two points clear ahead to win). Matches may be played on hard or grass courts as mutually agreed. Should bad light or weather prevent a match being completed, when play is resumed, the score shall hold good unless the clubs mutually agree otherwise.

7. Venue

The Cup Competition Secretary will direct clubs to the draw for all rounds on the relevant online system via a prescribed method of choice, give instructions for choice of ground and who is primarily responsible for arranging the match.  If the opposing club has not heard within 5 days, it shall take immediate steps to contact the club concerned to ensure the match is played by the due date.

The winning club shall send full details of the result, including full names of all players, to the Competition Secretary, by the prescribed method, within 24 hours of the completion of the match.  Telephone advice of the result of a match cannot be accepted.  Any team failing to comply with this Regulation shall be liable to a penalty or disqualification.

8. Questions and Disputes

Any problem or dispute shall be referred, at an early date, to the Cup Competition Secretary, whose decision shall be final.
