Island Country Club Covid-19 Tennis – Practice Social Distancing
Phase 2 - Re-Opening
Many of the policies below are from the USTA Playing Tennis Safely guidelines. Players are asked to practice physical distancing while on court and at the club and reminded to wash hands after playing at the club. There will be some limitations and changes to our normal tennis routine so that we all can stay safe as we get back outside and play tennis again.

PRESIDENTS CUP 2020
Same rules as always.
Low handicapper plays scratch and high handicapper subtracts lower HCer’s handicap from theirs.
Everyone must have an active USGA handicap. If their handicap is not active when they play their match they must play as a scratch player. Use current handicaps. It is the responsibility of all players to know their own handicaps. If extra holes are needed start from hole #1 and apply HC as if you were starting a new round.
All USGA rules apply.
Start date will be Monday June 29th. You will have 1 week to complete your match. If it’s not completed with in 1 week both players will be disqualified. If for some reason a player has to withdraw or is DQ the previous person that person defeated will advance in their place unless of course it’s the first round.
Do NOT use + or - for the scores. Use the correct numbers please. It will be a lot easier to determine if there is an error in scoring if it comes up.
DO NOT POST your scores. The tourney committee will post them. This will prevent double posting.
Please both players keep score. When match is over compare cards. You will only need to turn in 1 of the cards. Which ever one you decide to turn in will be the official score card and that’s the card I will be going by. In the final email with the bracket I will instruct where to turn the card into.
Lastly if you have any questions on a rule or just a ruling. Please don’t hesitate to ask a neutral party for help. It will save a lot of headaches and maybe some bad feelings down the road.
Have fun & good luck!
Please email Ken Wiberg at email@example.com or if we are friends on Facebook send me a PM to sign up. Sign up period will start June 1st and end June 27th. I will email everyone a bracket and have one posted at the club on the 28th. It’s common practice that the lower handicapper contacts their opponent to set up a date and time to play the match. Also please remember to call Danielle to set up a tee time. Also Danielle should have everyone’s contact info.
