No chair checks during the tournament only when there is a protest. Captains meetings 10 minutes before the game (off court), also check all players for necklace and earrings. Please start the game on time because of the tight schedule. In case a team cannot start to play in accordance with the rules within 15 minutes after the scheduled time, the game is forfeit and the opponent team is declared the winner. Some of our table officials are inexperienced (learning). Check that the clock is working before the game. Let it run to test it.
