a feed-in back draw as well as additional opportunities for other
play (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

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
