  1. In a tournament what are the refs responsible for? Score, foot faults, short serves, and who calls out of bounds?

    In a tourney is it appropriate to have age divisions? What breakdown do you suggest? We have many players over 70 and playing a 50 year old is a bit of a stretc, don’t you think?

    What is the appropriate way to rank players. I’ve seen the form, but if you do it for yourself you might not be too objective. What’s your advice?
