We will first play a preliminary round in groups, so that each team plays multiple games. Afterwards, the two best teams from each group will play in a knock-out round. Games are timed.
Rules of the Game
The tournament is played according to the rules of the German Tennis Federation.

We highly recommend wearing shoes suitable for the clay court when participating in the tournament. This means wearing designated tennis shoes with a herringbone tread pattern. Participants cannot play if they do not have the appropriate shoes.
The University Sports Center will provide the balls. Players must bring their own rackets.
Refreshments will be offered at Stadion Königshügel.
The tournament director reserve the right to postpone the tournament in the event of constant rain.
