Rules Fantasy Tennis Manager 2017

Goal of the Game

Fantasy Tennis Manager is a game where you create a team of tennis players that score points for you. They will do so by getting good results in the various ATP tournaments in that week. The more points your players score, the more points you score. The ultimate goal is to score more points than the other contestants of the Fantasy Tennis Manager.

How to create a team

Every weekend the ATP tournament schedule will be entered, once published, for the week to follow. From that moment on you can create your team. You can select a player by clicking the selection box before that specific player. Some players will not have a selection box, this is because only players from the ATP Ranking top 150 are selectable in the Fantasy Tennis Manager.

If the selection was completed succesfully, the player's box will turn green. You can select as many players as you like, as long as you do not exceed the available budget.
Your remaining budget will be shown in the upper right part of the screen. This amount will be updated every time you select or deselect a player. This way you are constantly aware of your remaining budget.

Pay attention: When you click on submit while having overspent your budget, some players will not be inserted in your team.
If you think your team is ready, don't forget to click on the submit button at the bottom of the page. This way you confirm your team and your store it in the database.

The budget

As indicated above, there is a limited budget to comply with. The budget can differ per week depending on the players who play in the tournament. The value of all players that can be chosen in a tournament will be added and then (depending on the kind of tournament) a certain percentage of that will be added to your budget:
250 tournament: 25%
500 tournament: 20%
1000 tournament: 20%
GS tournament: 15%

The player values are depending on their official ATP ranking total. These values are extracted from the website of the atptour.

Points

The number of points a player scores in a week is depending on his result in the tournament he plays that week. If Roger Federer wins the Australian Open he will gather 2000 points for the ATP ranking. If you have picked Roger Federer for this tournament then you will collect these 2000 points for your team. All points of all your players in your team in that specific week will be added for your weekscore.
The amount of points that can be scored, depends on the tournament category. You can check these points on the website of the atptour. The points are also shown on your team page where you can create your team.

If someone does not create a team he will get 90% of the points of the least scoring team that week. This is done to keep it still fun playing the game when you miss a week

Cups

Every week cups will be distributed to the contestants that had the winner of a tournament in their team. So if Novak Djokovic wins the Australian Open and you have him in your team you get 1 cup. If you have multiple winners in your team you get multiple cups. At the end of the year the winner of the cup ranking will be the person with the most cups. In case there are multiple people with the same amount of cups the prize will be divided between all of them.

Closing time database

The closing time of the database (the moment you can no longer adjust or create your team) depends on the tournaments being played that week. There is a fixed pattern however:
- Grand slams: The database will always close on Sunday 10 PM (CET).
- All other tournaments: The database will close on Monday 10 PM (CET).
- Exceptions are Indian Wells, Miami and the TMS which start on different days. The closing time for these tournaments will be announced in the weekly mail.

Below is an overview of all the weeks, containing the tournaments, the budget and the database closing time for that week.

Pay attention: The first week (Sydney/Auckland) is a test week. The points you will collect this week will not count for the general ranking
