13. 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.

The only doubles rule is that the highest ranked of the 4 players you choose to play doubles, must play #1 doubles. The remaining 3 players can play any order in the doubles. If your number 1 ranked player is playing singles, there is no obligation for them to play doubles as well. 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)
(Player 1, 2, 4 & 6 not playing) (Player 5 & 7 not playing) (All players are playing)
