The Singles Rules have been subject to several revisions and updates over a lengthy period of time under various commissions and as such contain a variety of inconsistencies relating to grammatical, typographical and punctuation usage and also the inconsistent use of certain mandatory words and terminology.

The Commission was accordingly tasked by the WSF Executive Board to tidy up all of these minor revisions where applicable. The Commission furthermore received welcome submissions with suggested improved wording to the recent Blood Injury provisions and requests from the PSA and other sources to amend and or amplify certain specific rules to address perceived omissions or provide more clarity and guidance to officials. The attached schedule and proposed updated version of the Singles Rules accordingly comprises these revisions, corrections, and additions with a tracking of each such change with reference to the particular rule affected and the nature of the amendment and also the consolidation of certain appendices.
