Click HERE for Future Stars match format.

Rules and Regulations:

Late Withdrawal and Failure to Complete Required Tournament Events (LW/FC) penalties will be enforced.
Once a player receives a total of 3 LW/FC Points within a 12 month period, he/she will be suspended for ONE month without being able to compete in any Canadian event (Provincial (all levels of tournaments including Future Stars and Team Tennis), National, ITF domestic) within that period. The period begins the day following the completion of the tournament in which the third LW/FC Point was assessed.

*Reminder: It is violation of code of conduct to enter two tournaments in the same time period without prior permission of both Tournament Referees.

At Tennis BC our goal is to ensure that tennis parents and coaches are educated on how to support their child and others during tournament play. Please find some helpful pointers listed below:

  • Review all pertinent details from the tournament website (start time, location, draw) 2 to 3 days prior to the events.
  • No coaching is allowed. Do not communicate, visually or verbally while your child is playing a match. Your child could receive penalties because of this.
  • No outside officiating is allowed. This includes line calls and scoring. Any score disputes on court should be referred to the on-site staff.
    Parents are asked not to make any judgement of line call from where you sit. The window or the curtain, as well as the angle may give you a different vision of where the ball lands. The line judges who are sitting right at the line make error sometimes and so do the young players.
  • While spectators are allowed on court in some clubs, all movement should be minimized in order not to disrupt the match. Should movement be necessary, we ask parents to do it after a point is finished and do it quickly – never between first and second serve.
