12 ITF Beach Tennis Tour Rules and Regulations 2015 Entries received after the entry deadline may be accepted at the discretion of the tournament organiser. Acceptance priority shall be given to teams that enter before the Entry Deadline. A player who appears on a Main Draw or Qualifying Acceptance List of an ITF Beach Tennis Tour event after the Withdrawal Deadline is deemed to have been accepted into and is committed to play the tournament and is liable to pay the appropriate entry fee, unless decided otherwise by the Tournament Director. Prior to the Withdrawal Deadline a player's status on the Acceptance List is not confirmed. Failure to pay the appropriate entry fee may subject the player to further penalty under the ITF Beach Tennis Tour Code of Conduct, including, but not limited to, suspension from play in all Tour tournaments. 4.
