How to Score Injury

If an injury occurs during a match and you cannot continue to play, Do you have to forfeit or can you just record that set as a loss for scoring purposes on the website?

For now do not score it as a forfeit. Put in the score with any games you may have one under the presumption your opponent would win all remaining games. In the future we will probably add a field where you can specify more information as to the nature of the forfeit (i.e. player hurt during match; other team did not show, etc).

I emailed Claudia and she told me TO score it as a forfeit.

The purpose of tracking forfeits has been to try and cut down on the number of matches where teams are not showing up/cancelling/not getting subs. If you do score it as a forfeit you might want to send Claudia, John, and Fritz Odenbach an email explaining it was because of an injury.

We'll see about adding a "Reason" field.
