Draws and schedule
Every player has been checked during the registration process in order to enter each participant in the appropriate division. For the seeding we used the GLTA ranking list per November 22 2015.
All events will be played in a regular draw with a first match consolation. All matches will be played best of three sets. The third set in all events is replaced by a champions tie break (until 10 points)
All consolation matches will be played as a pro-set (8 games and tie-break at 8-8). For every event in which you take part, you are guaranteed a minimum of two matches.
The draw sheets are published on the Tournament pages of the GLTA:
The definite time schedule will be published Tuesday 8 december 2015.
Each player needs to check in at the tournament desk 30 minutes before the match. Take enough time to travel to the venue. Traffic can be calm, but also suddenly very busy.
