My club sets aside 3 weeks for the matchplay, in a similar fashion to the 4 weeks set aside for the club championships. If you enter the club championships, it is expected that you are doing so by committing to play the 4 weeks. The same applies to the matchplay - you need to qualify for it, and if you then elect to play it, you commit to playing the full 3 weeks should you get through all the rounds.
It's a whole lot easier when it's all played on the same day...getting individuals to organise their own matches by a certain date meets the clinical definition of herding cats.
