IMPORTANT DOUBLES TEAMS AND PAIRINGS
We encourage all players to compete in doubles. Even if you do not
have a partner PLEASE
register for doubles when
you are registering for singles as this ensures your name will
appear and not have to be manually entered later. There is an
option available to you if you cannot find a partner.
We can try and help you find a partner IF you reply to our e-mail
that will go aout a few days after the event closes and/or you can
ask to be paired at random with another player by emailing and
asking us to pair you. NOTE: This is not a guarantee because if
there are an odd number of players wanting to be paired, one player
will not have a partner.
