Set Availability and Schedule Play
This feature is optional at this stage and is utilized mostly for scheduling friendly matches for singles, doubles and mixed doubles. This feature is one of our inventions and shall be fully utilized in the future for league seasons. We are just waiting for the players to get comfortable with the feature first. Therefore, we encourage you to set your availability, because that way, your opponents can see your availability right away and can plan around your schedule.
Go to your dashboard and click Set Availability. After you do that, players browsing your profile, or players who want to invite you for friendly matches, will know when you'll be available to play.
Set your availability from Monday to Sunday and let others send you friendly match requests that fit into your schedule. During the season play, your opponents will have the option to check your availability without contatcing you first, which will help them find suitable time for both parties quicker.
When you invite someone for a friendly match, you are required to provide two terms for the match.
After you enter the two terms and click 'Schedule', your opponent will receive an email saying that the match request has been created. Your opponent would then need to go to his/hers dashboard to respond.
After clicking the 'Respond' button, the player is presented with two proposed times and options to 'Accept', 'Reject' or 'Reschedule' the match in case none of the proposed times works.
In case the match gets accepted, it will automatically be shown in the 'Match Queue' list on both players' dashboards. After that, each player will have the option to 'Reschedule' the match, 'Set Score' and 'Compare' with the opponent.
After the match is over, you should go to your dashboard and click 'Set Score'. There you'd need to submit the match score, rate your opponent's sportmenship and enter notes about the match.
Note: This feature is available only for friendly matches at the moment. As we have more interest we will translate this system into season play.
