OBS

The word "draw-sheet" (or "draw sheet") seems to have a restricted meaning for a private tennis club. It can be the sheet on which appear the names of the participants in an upcoming tournament, listed according to previous standings or to the usual way of drawing names for such tournaments. The "draw sheet" is thus the paper sheet on which appears what is usually listed on the "draw board" of more important tournaments.

French

Domaine(s)
  • Sports de raquette
OBS

L'utilisation de «draw-sheet» semble restreinte à un usage interne pour un club de tennis. On peut avoir établi les têtes de série selon le classement actuel des participants ou selon l'habituelle façon de procéder par tirage au sort. Le «draw sheet» devient donc la feuille sur laquelle on a inscrit ce qui habituellement figure au «tableau de compétition» dans des tournois plus importants.
