Match Schedule Info - Future Match Info
* Additional Players - We do still need 1 more woman for the open doubles and Mixed 8.0 Doubles, but we have many leads and expect to fill those spots tonight or tomorrow. Please contact me right away if you are interested in filling those spots.
* Payments - There are many of you that changed divisions or for some other reason, the payment did not go through the USTA site. We will need to take care of the payment when you check in at the tennis tournament desk. Ideally, we would like this taken care of with check or cash then.
* Rain Contingency - We do have rain back up on site with 6 courts. Of course, we would be behind and may move some matches to the next day. Plan on your original time, but please check the sites where the draws are for updates tomorrow in case your match is moved.
* Format change - For the Men's 8.0 Doubles, we now will do a round robin with all teams with an 8 game pro-set and then have the top 2 teams play a 2 out 3 set match with a tiebreaker in place of a third set.to determine the Gold Medal winner. Women's Open Doubles and 8.0 Mixed Doubles will be a round robin with 2 out of 3 sets with a tiebreaker for a third set. I believe all other formats are the same as stated. Last reminder - the tournament packets including the t-shirt will NOT be at the tennis tournament. You will only be able to pick those up at the site which you can see here: SGA Packet Pick Up
