TEAM

In case of a tie for final standings, it shall be broken by the team winning in head-to-head competition.  If there still is a tie between teams, it shall be broken in favor of the team winning the most categories against each tying team of men's, women's and mixed (each counting one point.)  If a tie still exists, it will be broken in favor of the team who wins the most sets against all tying teams.  If a tie still exists, it shall be broken in favor of the team who wins the most games in the six-set match.  

 

For example--here is a three-way tie where W= win, L=loss and (-) or (+) = number of categories won or lost and total number of sets (S) won against the tying opponents.

 

Tying Teams

TEAM A

TEAM B

 

TEAM C

TEAM A

 

W=+2(category) 5S

L=-2 (category) 1S

TEAM B

L= -2 (category) 1S

 

W= +2 (category) 4S

TEAM C

W= +2 (category) 5S

L= -2(category) 2S

 

Teams A, B & C are all tied in win-loss records, 1-1.  Each is tied in number of categories.  Total sets won against all opponents breaks the third tie, where Team C wins with 7 sets won; Team A is 2nd with 6 sets won, and Team B is third with 5 sets won.
