Refereed Matches
This is an MMP Sanctioned event so all Pre Medal and Medal matches will be refereed. We will try to referee as many other matches as possible.
Once you receive a text for your match, GO STRAIGHT TO THE REFEREES DESK. If your match is going to be refereed (referee desk will tell you if you have a referee), you will wait until all players are present and enter the courts with the referee. If your match is not refereed, the first pair (or player) to the desk will collect the match ball and the second pair (or player) to the desk will collect the scoresheet.
