Registration Rules

Registration occurs in pairs. For organizational purposes, only registrations for mixed teams composed of one man and one woman will be accepted. Participants who register in pure men's or women's doubles will be removed from the list of participants. We ask for your understanding.

All participants must register as present with the tournament director at the tennis courts at Prof.-Pirlet-Straße by 10:30am the day of the event.

Participation Fee

Members of the University: seven Euros per person
Guests: fourteen Euros per person

Game Mode

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 ask that you adhere to the terms of use for the tennis courts at Prof.-Pirlet-Straße. Please note that you are required to have appropriate shoes with a herringbone pattern in order to play on the clay courts and participate in the tournament. This is not only for your own safety, as the risk of injury is higher when wearing inappropriate shoes, but also to avoid unncessary damage to the clay.

Materials and Balls

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

Refreshments will be offered at Stadion Königshügel.

Completion

The tournament director reserve the right to postpone the tournament in the event of constant rain.
