Who can play?
• The minimum requirement is previous match experience sufficient to maintain a rally and return the ball off the back glass
• We are looking for at least 48 players (men and women) to register and mixed pairs will be drawn at random
• Players do not need affiliation to OPC, players from all clubs are welcome
• All players must have their own racquet
What is the Americano format?
• The matches will be played for a predetermined number of points – in this case each match will be 24 points, or 25 in the event of a draw
• At the start of each match, the players will play for serve, there will be 6 successive serves per person and the pairs will change ends after 12 points
• Points will be awarded based on scores e.g. if the match ends 14-10, the winning pair get 14 points, and the losing pair 10 points. If the match ends 12-12, there will be a golden point with the additional serve taken by the player who served first (men should serve to men and women to women please), in this case the winning pair will get 13 points and the losing pair 12 points
• Pairs will play in accordance with the running order and the players will be expected to keep and report their own scores. In the event of a dispute that cannot be resolved on court, the point should be replayed
How will the competition work?
• The 24 pairs will be drawn at random into 8 groups of 3 pairs, 2 groups per court and the 1 st round will see each pair play 2 matches against the other pairs in the same group – the highest scoring pair in each group will automatically progress to the 3rd round
• Where pairs are tied on points, the highest single match score will determine the position
• The 2nd round will see the second and third placed pairs in each of the 2 groups play to progress to the 3rd round and only the winners of each game will progress to the 3rd round
• The remaining 16 pairs will progress to the knockout rounds as per the schedule attached
• The winning pair will be awarded the Madrugada Padel Mashup Trophy
