You will let the team manager know your availability in the beginning of the season and they will try to roster you on accordingly. So if there are certain weekends that you are not available, please let the manager know.

12. How do I roster on the players each week?

The manager will do their best to roster each player on for a minimum of 4 match ties during the season according to the players availability. The manager/representative will then give the weekly line up to the onsite coordinator.

At least four players must be rostered to play each week. You can roster up to 8 players each week. Players cannot play out of order of rank, e.g. if you have your number 2, 3, 5, 7 playing that day then the number 2 becomes number 1 for that day and so on, with the number 7 playing number 4.

For doubles the only rule is that the highest ranked player playing doubles must play the number 1 doubles. With singles the players must play in order of ranking. A player can play either a singles or/and a doubles. 
*Please find below examples of how the rostering system can work for a team of 8 players.

Ex. 1 (4 players rostered on) Ex. 2 (6 players rostered on) Ex. 3 (8 players rostered on)

13. How do I change the Player rankings?

You can make changes to the rankings within the first two weeks only (before the start of week three). All team managers will be shared into a google sheet in the beginning of the season where they can make the changes. You can also email the new rankings to jtt@savitar.sg.

All Individual entries are required to attend a grading day on Sunday, 3rd February 2019 from 5pm-6pm,  at UWCSEA, Dover Rd to assess levels. This is where we will place all the individual entries into a team. There is no scoring and it's not super competitive, just to give us an indication of each player's level and potential ranking in a team. If you are unable to attend Grading Day please contact JTT Management at jtt@savitar.sg.
