Roving Umpires, members of Tennis Québec, will be on site to guarantee the smooth operation of the tournament. Please find below a summary of basic rules as found in the Guidelines for Unofficiated Matches.

Stalling.
The following actions constitute stalling:

  • warming up for more than the allotted time;
  • playing at about one-third a player’s normal pace;
  • taking more than the allotted 90 seconds on the odd-game changeover;
  • taking more than the authorized ten minutes during an authorized rest period between sets;
  • starting a discussion or argument in order for a player to catch his breath;
  • clearing a missed first service that doesn’t need to be cleared; and
  • bouncing the ball ten times before each serve.

ANTI-DOPING POLICY
The 1st World Outgames endorses a healthy and fair approach to sports training and competition. Sport events in the 1st World Outgames are sanctioned by provincial, national, and in some cases, international sports governing bodies. In order to adhere to the rules of these sporting federations and to guarantee that the Outgames are run in a fair and just manner, GLISA and the Outgames have adopted the policy as set by the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport (CCES), and the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

Consequently, all athletes competing in the 1st World Outgames must adhere to GLISA’s position on drugs in sport and may be required to undergo drug-testing. We encourage all participants to become familiar with this policy.
 
POLICY ON TRANSITIONED AND TRANSGENDER ATHLETES

The objective of the 1st World Outgames in this regard is to provide an experience where all athletes are able to compete in a safe and welcoming environment, without discrimination of any kind. Our priority is to find the appropriate balance to ensure that no person, regardless of their birth gender, is disadvantaged in athletic competition and at the same time that no person participating in the Outgames experiences discrimination.

GLISA and the 1st World Outgames have collaborated so as to develop a policy that reflects this balance. We encourage all participants, especially those who have identified themselves as ‘transgender’ in the registration process, to become familiar with this policy.

ACCREDITATION
During the accreditation, participants from Canada will be required to show government-issued identification with a photo. For athletes from all other countries, a passport will be the preferred form of identification. Furthermore, every participant will be required to provide his or her participant number.


RESULTS
Results will be posted at the competition site as well as on the web site of the 1st World Outgames, only for the finals. In addition, real-time results will also be available on the Tennis Information web site.

MEDALS
Every participant in the 1st World Outgames Montréal 2006 will receive a participation medal. Medals will also be awarded to players finishing first, second and third place in each of the divisions.
