Doubles teams can be created from within the tournament module in Serve Tennis. Teams can be paired up before registration has closed, or after registration has closed. Players that are already paired will appear the the PAIRED section.
To create doubles teams, follow the steps below:
Step 1: Open the tournament module, select the tournament you are running, and then select the ‘players’ tab
Step 2: Select the specific event from the dropdown, then select ‘Player Selections’
Step 3: After sorting the player list by your required filter (optional) select ‘Add Doubles Team’
Step 4: Pair up the players as desired
NOTE: Players can now set themselves as "Looking For a Partner" when pairing partners, if the player has this symbol next to their name, it simply means they are ok being paired with whomever.
Step 5: Filter the players by ‘paired’ and pull the paired teams over into the draw options. If you are not ready to finalize the pairings (e.g. registrations are still open etc) select ‘Save’. If you are fully finished with your selections, select finalize
Step 6: You can then repeat the steps above as you are made aware of more pairings, or, move the teams between the main draw and alternate list as required by clicking, and dragging teams between options. You can also add any unpaired players to the ‘unpaired players’ by clicking and dragging unpaired players into the ‘unpaired players’ section. These players can then be paired up in Tournament Desk if a partner is found.
If a player selected their doubles partner during the registration process, you will be able to view these players already paired, under the 'Paired' option:
If you need to unpair a team, simply select the team, click the three dots and select 'Unpair'. This will allow the players to be paired with another player, either by the tournament director or by players completing the registration process:
Please Note: Doubles teams placed in the main draw will now be charged at the time of selecting 'Charge Cards' from within Serve Tennis.
