–Seeding shall be done for the main draw of each Adult category (Men’s and Ladies Singles/Doubles, Mixed Doubles) based on a modified version of standard systems used by international tennis associations. See http://www.itftennis.com/misc/page-not-found.aspx for more info.
–Seeding is based on total points earned by a player in the applicable category in the previous 2 tournaments
(2016 Fall Tennis Championship and 2016 Spring Tournament). Seedings for doubles teams shall be based on
combined points of the team members.
Points are awarded for each win as follows:
MAIN DRAW OF OPEN/A’s SINGLES = 3 POINTS

CONSOLATION OF OPEN/A’s SINGLES = 1 POINT
CONSOLATION OF REGULAR/B’s EVENTS = 0.5 POINTS
A default or retirement is a win for the non-defaulting/non-retiring party. A bye is not a win. In the event of a tie in total points
between two players in a category, seeding shall be determined by the Tournament Director based on results in other ACC competitive
events (e.g. inter-club competition), ACC ladder and league, and non-ACC competition (e.g. CTTA tournaments, etc.).
# of seeds selected: 8 seeds for draw of 32; 6 seeds for draw of 24; 4 seeds for draw of 16; 2 seeds for draw of 8
Seed placement: Seeds shall be manually placed into the draw as follows:

–Multiple matches: Players should be prepared to play more than 1 match per day although stacking of matches will be avoided
–Referees: The Tournament Director will be around throughout the Tournament and will act upon unsportsmanlike behavior, which
will lead to penalties or forfeiture of the match. ACC Tennis Professionals will referee all main draw finals.
–Juniors requirement: All juniors must be able to play without outside help, and are expected to know how to play matches, including
basic rules and scoring. Players will referee themselves in early rounds as ACC teaches all juniors to know the rules so they are able to
play the game without assistance or disruption, and ACC wishes to maintain this teaching throughout the events.
–Warm-up: Warm-up, including service practice, is restricted to 10 minutes.
–Late/default: A 15-minute window for arrival to all matches will be strictly enforced. Players may notify the Pro Shop if they are to
arrive late due to unforeseen circumstances and allowances may be made. Otherwise the late player will be defaulted and if 1st round,
will not be entered into the consolation. Please always allow enough time to arrive with time to spare.
–Late withdrawal/no-show: Matches cancelled less than 24 hrs before scheduled playing time and/or no shows will be an automatic
default. If a 1st round match, players will not be entered into consolation events. The fee for any defaulted matches is NT$500.
–Balls: New balls will be provided for each match. Balls should be returned to the Pro Shop after completion of match, at which time
results can be reported and next rounds scheduled.
–Spectators: Under no circumstances are spectators allowed on the court during play. Under no circumstances
(except emergency) should a player be coached by, or in communication with, a spectator during a match.
–Bad behavior: There will be a zero tolerance for bad behavior by all players.
Any questions regarding sign-up should go to the Tournament Director.
Director will have final say in any matters deemed extraordinary that applicable rules do not address.
