The event is designed for fun, encouraging play and participation. Best efforts will be encouraged, but sporting behaviour will be expected and any excess of competitive attitude will be discouraged.
Event organisers will adjust some rules to suit the varied ability of players (especially serving, in beginner cases double bounces and double hits may be allowed)
Parents will be expected to be attentive to help inexperienced players with simple scoring and to follow instructions of event organisers.
The first session of doubles play will be used to help group the players into similar abilities. After that singles will commence with everyone getting four short format games
