EDBA Tournament Coaching Rules

Dear EDBA Clubs and Coaches,

In the past, the EDBA had typically allowed on-court coaching during EDBA tournaments. With on court coaching becoming increasingly frequent in EDBA tournaments, it has become apparent that formalized rules are required for on court coaching during EDBA tournaments to minimize issues and misunderstandings and to ensure that on court coaching during EDBA tournaments is implemented in an equitable and consistent manner.

Please find attached a set of EDBA Tournament Coaching Rules which takes effect immediately. These rules apply to all EDBA tournaments including both junior and adult tournaments.

Comments regarding the EDBA Tournament Coaching Rules are most welcomed. If you have any issues, questions or suggestions, please e-mail tournament@edba.org.
