Arriving in good time for a match is good tactics! It gives you time to prepare and shows courtesy. But if you are running late, don’t panic. If you have planned ahead, you should have your opponent’s phone number with you. Let him/her know. But remember: our rules allow a player to claim a walkover if his/her opponent is more than half an hour late. And of course, whatever happens, you are still responsible for your share of the court fees (and would probably offer to pay for any additional court fee needed for extra playing time).
