About Seeding and the Draws

     The Tournament Committee determined tournament berths and seeding based on the following criteria: 2022 win-loss record, record within class, quality of schedule, head-to-head results, results against common opponents, total number of matches played, meeting the .500 record minimum standard, and any other available information.


Match Format

    In the team tournament, all team matches are played using the 7-point intercollegiate format, consisting of three doubles pro-sets collectively worth one point followed by six best-of-three-sets singles matches each worth a point. Because of the tournament format, once the doubles point is decided, teams should commence singles play immediately, abandoning the remaining doubles pro-set, if necessary. Once the team result is decided, the remaining singles matches may be abandoned. Singles matches in which the first two sets are split shall be finished with a super-tiebreak in lieu of the third set. For more information about this format, click here.
    Doubles and singles play commences with a "hot start," with a spin of the racquet and the first serve of the match. Players and doubles teams should not expect to warm up with their opponents before starting each match.


Logistics

Tennis balls. All participating teams should bring nine unopened cans of balls to the first round matches on Saturday morning. The first matches will be played using one school's tennis balls. The losing team keeps the used match balls and the winning team will keep the unopened cans for the next round. This process will be repeated for the semifinals and final.

Hot start. Players should be prepared to warm up for all matches with teammates, then after doubles introductions spin the racquet and immediately serve to begin the first point without further warm up. Once the doubles point is decided, singles matches must begin promptly. Players may take up to three minutes to warm up if they have not just finished playing doubles.

Match intervals. Coaches should use common sense in ensuring a suitable interval before semifinal play should quarterfinal matches run long.

Mutual consent. As there will not necessarily be an official nor a site director at each venue, coaches will need to work together to resolve any difficulties. At each venue, the coach and/or athletic director (or their designate) of the hosting school have the final decision relating to playing conditions and scheduling.
