Match Format & Inclement Weather Information
All main draw matches will be the best of three sets. There will be
a feed-in back draw as well as additional opportunities for other
play (round of 16 and quarter final play-offs). Each team will play
a minimum of three matches unless playing conditions prohibit. If
matches are relocated to indoor facilities or clay courts, pro-sets
or third-set tiebreaks may be used at the tournament director's
The schedule of all matches will be posted at Longwood and players
must report at the time set. Match schedule is subject to change
due to weather. Those not present when matches are called may be
defaulted. In case of rain, or cessation of play for any reason,
players shall not leave the grounds until they have contacted the
referee as to the resumption of play. In all such cases, such
matches may be played which, in the opinion of the committee, will
best advance the whole of such competitions, irrespective of all
previous schedules. At the direction of the committee, matches may
be completed on surfaces other then grass. There will be playoffs
for 3rd and 4th place in the main draw. All matches in the main
draw and feed- in draw will count toward national ranking. Play
will move indoors as last resort to insure tournament completion.
Additional charges will be incurred for indoor play. Please call
the front desk at 617-731-2900 or check the Longwood website
Practice courts will be available at no extra charge beginning
Sunday, July 14 at 3 p.m. Courts are based upon availability.
Please note there is a club event on Saturday afternoon so there
will be no practice courts available during this time.
