TENNIS COMPETITION STRUCTURE:
- Combined wheelchair and able-bodied divisional round-robin style play. Each player will total 3 rounds of timed matches — 30 minutes of play per round.
- Divisions based on 3.5-, 4.0- and 4.5+-level players: depending on registrations, pairings may be gender neutral with every effort to provide level-based play.
- Wheelchair players, paired with able-bodied players, will play rounds on hard courts and use the same point scoring system, ending with a wheelchair championship match paired with a professional for the top two players with highest game count.
- Competition is individual-based. Each player will have a tally of games won and the top two players with highest game count in each division will qualify for the final match paired with a local professional tennis player.
