Rules

4. SCORE-KEEPING: Have your phones charged the day of, to input match scores. Winning team will input each match scores, and both teams must verify on the app. Please do not do this in the court, instead, step outside so another match can begin in that court.
a. If the teams prefers to use the score-keeping table volunteers to input scores, teams must use the blank scorecards provided on the clipboards.
b. Teams are responsible to writing in the names, scores, and match numbers provided to them by the score-keeping table. The app will keep track of all of that for you though.
i. Scorecards should be circled with Winning Team and total points earned documented.
ii. Winners should bring the scorecards to the score-keeping table.
iii. If using scorecards, winning team provides the scorecards to the score-keeping table.
iv. This is a DUPR event, although not sanctioned. DUPR will automatically receive your results once they are verified off of the SWISH app. (Please reach out to Tennille if you have questions about this).
5. Tournament Expectations:
a. Each team has two time-outs if choose to use.
b. Play to 11, win by 1 (this helps us stay on time)
c. After six points, change court sides.
d. Please return your GAME ball after each match.
e. SLAP bracelets are provided as a courtesy for first servers. Please return after the tournament event.
f. Prior to each Match, the Starting SERVER bracelet for each team must be visible to others.
g. No attire can be the same color as the bright yellow Franklin X40 balls. You will be asked to change if anyone complains.
h. Rock, Paper, Scissors: Both teams quickly play Rock, Paper, Scissors, winning team has first choice of end, serve, receive, or defer. If the winner chooses to serve or receive first, the loser chooses the starting end. If the winner chooses the starting end, the loser chooses to serve or receive. Once a selection has been made, it cannot be changed.
6. Helpful suggestions
a. Review the 2024 USA Pickleball Official Rulebook prior to your first tournament and watch for ongoing rule changes. This makes it more competitive and fun. Although this is not an Officiated Tournament, many of the basic rules apply.
b. The winning teams are based on Total Wins of the nine games in each bracket. If there is a tie, then it is a Head-to-Head and the winner of that Match is decided.
