Tournament Player Parking
There is limited parking immediately adjacent to the TennisPlex; and junior players requiring adult transportation are afforded priority for these spots. Tournament players should park next to the "Mooseum." To get there, continue past the TennisPlex entrance, down the hill, and left into the parking lot (you will see the outdoor courts directly up the hill). Parking at the TennisPlex lot should be more readily available after 12:30pm.
A Note about Formats....
With the intent of offering players "more for their tournament dollar," events at this tournament differ so as to promote that cause. What that means is (a) draws of 2 players are scheduled for 1 match -- no leeway there!;
(b) draws of 3 players/teams are scheduled in round robin format, so every player/team is assured of 2 matches;
(c) draws of 4 players/teams are scheduled as single elimination with a 3/4 playoff match, meaning first match winners play in the championship, while first-match losers play a playoff match for 3rd-4th place (again, all players/teams guaranteed 2 matches); and finally,
(d) draws of 5 or more players play straight single elimination.
Matches are planned as best of 2 tiebreak sets, regular scoring, with a Match Tiebreak in lieu of a 3rd set where necessary. Coman Tiebreak Procedure is utilized in all tiebreaks. Where circumstances warrant (e.g., weather), abbreviated match formats may be implemented at any time. If abbreviated formats are utilized, scores from such matches will be recorded (converted) to the planned format using USTA League national conversion protocols developed for this purpose.
