Welcome to the 1st edition of MTF TE Newport!




It’s time for one last hurrah on the green stuff before we head back to hard courts! With former legends of the tour having said their goodbyes at Wimbledon, this could be the start of a new chapter in the MTF TE tour!

The rules:

1. First and most important rule is that everyone can join.

2. This is a game intended for fun. Banter is encouraged but please play your matches in a friendly and sporting manner.

3. The deadline of Sunday 6pm CEST won’t be changed and a random draw will be made after that. However, you can commit afterwards as a LL. You can play your R1 match as soon as the draw comes out.

4. You have to talk with your opponent and find the best time for both of you to play the match. You can chat here in the thread or talk personally, furthermore to talk about who should host the game and much more.

N.B. If a player is inactive and fails to meet the deadline for a match, their opponent will automatically receive a walkover.

5. This tournament will follow a schedule, like a real life tournament. The idea is for all players to progress through the draw at roughly the same pace, so that there are no long delays and disparities between players’ waiting times*.

Tournament schedule: Monday-Wednesday (R1), Thursday-Friday (QF), Saturday (SF), Sunday (F)

*allowances can be made of course. If it’s impossible to play on the set day(s) then we can extend the deadline, but this is the framework we will try to work to.

6. If you find that you don’t have time to play your matches, please announce your withdrawal. Your opponent will win via walkover.

7. We play the MTF Tennis Elbow Newport 250. The surface will be Grass. The format is Best-Of-Three with tiebreaks in all sets.



8. If you host you have to choose under the setting ‘controls’ the option “Arcade controls”. We play with Ball preview on plus Danger zone, aiming off. Tiredness on and Fair Mode.



9. To maximise the joy of this game it is recommended to utilise Hamachi Free to have lag-free matches resp. to avoid lags.

10. Once you have finished the match, make sure someone posts a screenshot of the match stats here.

Deadline Sunday 6pm CEST. Draw maker not decided yet.

This might possibly be the last tournament. Tour doesn't seem to have a good future

Re: MTF TE Newport – the Real Grass Slam (sign up now!)

It's been pretty nonstop since MC in fairness, with very little breaks, so it's no surprise folk have got a little fed up. We should've just had a few weeks break after Wimbledon and started from scratch again at the Canadian Masters when folk are motivated to play again.

Anyway, that's just my take on it. I'm in, but I doubt they'll be a big turnout.

Well, it's just a 250 so I'm not expecting a huge turnout. That said the depleted field makes this tournament ripe for vulturing, so maybe that will entice a few players to join. :p

I said that I am semi-retired and tired from this game. I am not coming back soon.

I could try this. My hosting capabilities are basically non existent, but this tournament might need some meat in the draw to boost numbers :lol:

Yes probably but the entry list is looking nice so far. We have the Brisbane champion, Irving Champion, Leon Champion, Indian Wells & Madrid Champion. :bowdown: (Also #NexTEgen's cmchelsea and DR)

…maybe even the Wimbledon Champion himself if enlightenedth ever gets to play his final there.

Already confident in saying MTF TE Newport > ATP Newport ;)

Think I'm gonna give this a shot.

Can't host though. Never used hamachi, either.

Re: MTF TE Newport ? the Real Grass Slam (one place left to fill! deadline 8pm CEST)

We need one more player ideally for a 12-player draw, so I'm extending the deadline until 8pm. If nobody joins we'll run it with eleven players, keeping a place open for one late entrant.

EDIT: Draw is complete! @Darth Revan will be conducting the draw ceremony shortly.
