ARBOR JUNIOR OPEN. REGISTRATION FOR THIS TOURNAMENT WILL REMAIN
OPEN UNTIL 6:00 P.M. ON WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 11. Please read the
following information thoroughly before registering for this
It is unfortunate that the Ann
Arbor Junior Open and the Midland Jr. Dog Days tournament overlap
in scheduled dates by one day (Ann Arbor finishes on Friday, August
13 and Midland is scheduled to begin on that same day [Friday
matches may, or may not be necessary-it will depend on the number
of entrants in the tournament]). Any matches scheduled for Friday
will not begin before 2:00 p.m. In the past there has always been
at least a week in between these two tournaments, and we intend to
avoid this conflict next year. For this year, however, we are
making the following extension to the registration deadline to
accommodate as many players as possible that would like to play in
both tournaments. The online registration deadline will be extended
through 6:00 p.m. on Wednesday, August 11. HOWEVER, PLAYERS CANNOT
REGISTER FOR THE DOG DAYS TOURNAMENT UNTIL THEY ARE OFFICIALLY OUT
OF THE ANN ARBOR TOURNAMENT. IMPORTANT-Any player who registers for
the Dog Days Tournament and then withdraws after 6:00 p.m. on
Wednesday, August 11 because they are still playing in Ann Arbor
will be assessed 5 suspension points (please see the following
information regarding the USTA Suspension Point
USTA SUSPENSION POINTS FOR
MULTIPLE TOURNAMENT ENTRIES
"Players will be assessed five
(5) suspension points for entering two or more tournaments, matches
or exhibitions scheduled to take place at the same time, in whole
or in part, unless each tournament director agrees to the multiple

officially out of the Ann Arbor Junior Open in order to register
online for the Midland Jr. Dog Days Tournament.

courts. Because of limited courts and the desire to stay on
schedule, the doubles events will not be offered this
