Seedings for TNS Sanctioned Adult Tournaments:

In order to ensure fair play at all adult sanctioned tournaments, TNS will be seeding players based on National Bank Rankings (or UTR if suitable).  Gareth Dowdell, Tournament Chair will oversee this process and use discretion if there is inadequate player history available.  Competitive players are encouraged to make an effort to play in sanctioned tournaments in order to establish an accurate ranking for themselves.

Every effort will be made to ensure a fair and equitable player experience.

Code Violations and Suspension Points:

In order to bring TNS in line with other provincial and international organizations, beginning in June 2022 TNS will begin cataloguing code violations and issuing suspension points whenever necessary. The assessment of three or more suspension points within a 12 month period will result in the suspension of the player. You can see if you have any active offences in the system by logging into the Tennis Canada tournament website, clicking the drop down menu from the top right of the screen (where your name is), and selecting ‘Disciplinary System’.

Please see page 91 of the Tennis Canada Rules of the Court for a breakdown of suspension points. Note that in Nova Scotia, both juniors and adults can receive suspension points for ‘Failure to complete match/tournament’ code violation.
