40 & Over Tiebreak Rule




ALL 40 & Over Captains:


For the 40 & Over 4 line format if there is a tie at 2-2 the match tie-break will be as follows.  Anytime you have a tie that gets to least games lost, please email leaguetennis@arktennis.com.  We want to make sure that all ties are calculating correctly.


2.03H(2)a Individual Matches. Winner of the most individual matches in the entire competition.

2.03H(2)b  Head-to-Head. Winner of head-to-head match only if all tied teams have played each other and one team defeated all the teams that are tied.

2.03H(2)c  Sets. Loser of the fewest number of sets.

2.03H(2)d  Games. Loser of the fewest number of games.

2.03H(2)e  Game Winning Percentage: Total games won divided by total games played

2.03H(2)f  A Method to be Determined by the Championships Committee. Procedure to be announced prior to commencement of championship competition. 


If the tie is not broken by the first of the procedures above, Arkansas will break the tie by using the winner of the #1 doubles court (then the #1 singles court, if necessary).  This will apply to both local league play and all Arkansas championships.
