RAIN PLAN UPDATE
ALL SATURDAY MATCHES DELAYED UNTIL 1pm. It is raining here and looks like it will stop but with the heavy humidity will take awhile for the courts to dry. Hopefully this is our final time!!!!!!! Thanks!
it is our philosophy at Northwestern to give everyone a chance
to play. However, if all draws are exceptionally large we may have
to limit draws to 16 participants per draw. Again, we will do our
best not to limit the draws!
Player Selection Type
If we do need to limit the draws, selections will be made based on
ranking. Midwest rankings will be used first, followed by district

registration is still open. If registration has closed and
tournament has not begun yet, please email the tournament director

a USTA event once the selections have been made, the only reasons
that are accepted by the USTA Referee without incurring FIVE (5)
suspension points are injury, illness or family emergency. Having a
soccer game, a family dinner, or not feeling like playing the
consolation are not accepted reasons.
