MAV Policies

Administrative/Registration

MAV and its tournament directors will be the final judge on the disposition of a tournament.

Tournaments may be suspended due to field conditions or local environmental conditions (i.e. lightning, pollution alerts, high temperatures

MAV may alter the format of any match due to time and/or weather considerations.

Players must register during designated registration times (7:45am-8:30am). Failure to have all team members present may result in loss of entry. All players must be present at the time of check-in to sign a waiver. Any teams arriving after 8:30 will be assessed a $10 late fee.

The first match begins at the designated tournament time (usually 9:00 a.m. ). You must be prepared to play or work at that time or risk forfeiture. Ten minutes is allotted between matches; play must begin at the end of that interval. Teams not ready to play at the end of the 10 minutes forfeit the 1st game of the match, with subsequent games forfeited every 5 minutes. Work Teams are responsible for keeping time between matches (see above). Timing begins at the end of the previous match. If the work team fails to show, they will receive a 1-game forfeit in their next match.

During pool play, if teams cannot mutually decide on a game ball, the work team decides. For playoffs, the higher seed gets choice of game ball.

CLEATS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THE PLAYING FIELD. THEY POSE A DANGER TO OTHER PLAYERS AND TEAR UP THE FIELDSMulti-studded rubber soles (turf shoes) are acceptable.

Players may wear jewelry, although this is discouraged. Items that may fall off or pose a danger to players (e.g., beepers) may not be worn during play.

Honor calls are expected among competitors. However, work teams are responsible for making calls and settling disputes.

The work team of the last match in pool play is required to bring the results sheet to the tournament director. The team that loses the last game of pool play is required to stay and work the 1st round of playoffs. If that team is in the playoffs, their opponent in the last match stays. If both are in playoffs, the work team of the last match stays.

The losing team in playoff matches works the next playoff match. The loser of the last semi-final match to finish stays to work the final.

Scoring and Playoffs

MAV may alter the format of any match due to time and/or weather considerations. Side out scoring is used for all games. There is a 17 point cap for 15 point games and a 13 point cap for 11 point games. THIS IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE BY THE TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR.

In the event of a tie for 1st place in pool play, tiebreaker is as follows: head-to-head record, point differential in head-to-head match, point differential, coin toss. In the event of a tie for 2nd place in pool play, 1 game to 11 (side out scoring) will be played. First team to reach 11 points is the winner. THIS IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE BY THE TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR.

Playoff matches consist of 1 game to 11. THIS IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE BY THE TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR.

A division must have 4 or more teams in it to be eligible for awards. If a division has only 1 court, there will be no playoffs unless there is a tie for 1st or 2nd.
