Answers to some FAQs
1. All SETS in the BDNTA are first to six games, with a tie-breaker to be played at 5 games all.
2. TROLS RESULTS ENTRY for tie-break sets: 6/5 to the WINNING team.
3. All BDNTA TIE-BREAKERS are the traditional 12 point tie-break: first to 7 points with a margin of at least 2 points.
(eg. A winning score could be 7/3 or 7/5 etc., but if the tie-break scores reach 6 points all, then the tie-break continues until one team is at least 2 points ahead)
4. Players must not play for more than one club during the same season on the same playing night.
i.e. If Joe Blogs plays for Blackburn on Tuesday nights then he cannot play for another club on Tuesday nights during the same season.
Finals Eligibility: 2020 Autumn Season
Players must play at least 3 matches during the home/away season in order to qualify for finals for a particular night.
Being named in a complete washout/heatout/blackout does not qualify as a match played towards finals eligibility.
(N.B. A complete washout/heatout/blackout is a match in which not a single game in any set has been completed)
When a team receives a forfeit, only the players named for the team winning by forfeit will count towards finals eligibility.
(i.e. The team losing by forfeit cannot name players)
