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 discretion.
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

Practice courts will be available at no extra charge beginning Sunday, July 13 at 3 p.m. Courts are based upon availability.
