2020 TENNIS KENYA JUNIOR & OPEN TOURNAMENT RULES
TK reserves the right in awarding sanction to any Tournament that applies to be accepted on the calendar. All tournaments agree to abide by the TK Rules and Regulations as set out below. In the case of any interpretation or query, the application of the rules as per the International Tennis Federation shall apply.
Furthermore, all Tournament Organisers and or Applicants (Regions, Counties, Clubs, Private Organisers) must be in good standing with TK.
A TK Tournament Guide is also available on the TK website. Various other aspects relating to Dope Testing, Tennis Integrity Unit (TIU) and summarised versions of Rule Changes or General Announcements are also available under the Rules and Regulations section.
The various sections/categories below all apply to Junior, Open and Senior (Seniors) categories. Where a specific rule only applies to a specific tournament/event category, then this will be indicated separately.
Players, when entering a tournament, agree to abide by the TK Tournament Rules and Regulations, the TK Code of Conduct and Disciplinary Procedures, as well as agreeing to any necessary Drug Testing that may be performed by the Tournament, TK or Drug Free Sport, either onsite or out of competition.
When entering a tournament, players also commit to the tournament for the full duration of the tournament, unless they complete the On-Site Player Release Form, which exempts the player from participating any further in the Singles Play-Off’s. Only official Medical Certificates from the appointed Tournament Doctor will be accepted for retirements and withdrawals occurring on-site during a tournament.
All Tennis KENYA Tournament Venues shall have displayed in a visible position a sign that clearly states that the “Right of Admission is reserved and that all unauthorised persons who attempt to enter the Venue may, at the discretion of the organisers, be removed by either the organisers or their authorised representatives”.
The TK Tournament Rules and Regulations are reviewed during the year and changes are generally adopted/implemented prior to the commencement of the new season i.e. 1 January annually. However, in exceptional circumstances the officiating Commission may recommend immediate changes to the TK Board for ratification and implementation during the course of the year. Note, this is only in exceptional cases.
