3.0 Roster
21
3.1 Launch Day: All individual entries placed into a team and new teams must attend Launch Day. Previously existing teams must send a representative on Launch Day.
22
3.2 Your team manager is your point of contact for the league. The team manager will be in charge of rostering players for each tie. There are 5-7 players in your team and each player should play a minimum of 4 ties during the season. If you are unable to make your scheduled week, please contact your team manager as soon as possible. DO NOT contact him/her on the day of the match. It is important to give your team manager enough time to find a replacement. Your manager will do their best to roster you on again to ensure you get your allocated matches. Should your team not be able to compete on any given week, JTT will give you the option of contacting the opposition to propose an alternate time/day. In such a case the courts and schedule becomes the responsibility of the two teams involved. Should the opposition not agree to a reschedule then the original date scheduled by JTT will remain the official date.
23
3.3 Times of Play. There will be 6 weeks of rostered matches and the 7th week for some final rounds, 3rd/4th play offs and finals.

10/U and 12/U will play all matches on Sundays. *Some teams will have 1 match on Saturday due to court restrictions.
14/U and 17/U will play all matches on Saturdays.

Players cannot play out of order of rank, e.g. if you have your number 2, 3, 5, 6 playing that day then the number 2 becomes number 1 for that day and so on, with the number 6 playing number 4.
26
