NEW TENNIS COURTS AT COD!
Experience the lifestyles of the rich and famous at COD! When you
step foot on our campus to play tennis; eat at our restaurants;
stay in our hotel, or whatever you decide (the possiblities are
endless in Glen Ellyn) - you will feel like a millionaire...even if
you don't have the money...yet. When you play at COD you will feel
like you are at a country club, but without the dues!
GENERAL TOURNAMENT INFORMATION:
FREE T-SHIRTS FOR ALL PARTICIPANTS!
We NOW have great lights (Musco brand) to make you feel like you
are at the US Open! Our 6 outdoor courts are in high demand. Our
facility was designed by V3co.com to be a destination for everyone
to enjoy. This isn't just a slab of cement with posts and nets. If
you decide to have a stay-cation this summer, then this is the
place for you. Plenty of Div 1, 2, 3 schools like to soak up our
National Championship atmosphere and play on our courts during
tournaments/dual meets/camps - you are invited too! Check out
www.codtennis.com for all the tennis events we run on campus.
DIRECTIONS TO THE TENNIS COURTS:
Official address is 425 Fawell Blvd, Glen Ellyn, but that will take
you to the other side of campus. You cannot access the tennis
courts from Fawell - you can only reach the courts from College
Blvd! (Fyi, College and Fawell run parallel with each other. The
other main streets: Lambert & Park run parallel). All the
athletic fields are next to each other
(football/baseball/track/tennis) - signs are on campus directing
you to the athletic fields. You can even park next to the courts
and have a tailgate party!
This level 6 tournament follows the USTA rules very strictly. We
have line judges (college coaches/HS coaches/college players) who
will roam and actively go to each court when a dispute arises and
follow the Friend at Court manual. Please check your match times -
late penalties will be enforced.
All matches will be 2 out of 3 sets with a tie breaker in lieu of a
3rd set with regular scoring. If you lose your first match you get
to play more in the backdraw at the beautiful COD campus! We try to
play out the backdraw to completion if weather and court
SCHEDULE OF PLAY:
On Wed/Thurs/Friday junior matches will start at 4:30pm or later.
Adult matches will start 6pm or later. This is a nighttime
challenger. On Saturday/Sunday play can begin as early as 8am, but
we hope to continue in the late afternoon/evening to help you enjoy
the nights under the lights! However, rain or large draws can make
us begin early.
We never have a limit on the draw sizes at COD! We want to grow the
game big time! According to USTA rules we need 3 in an age category
to make it so. Please contact us before the deadline if you think
your age category will be too small and would like to request to
move to another age category. Please be aware when you register
there may be more than 3 but people do drop out before the deadline
and you'll be left holding the bag. Shoot an email in advance and
you'll be money.
We manually select & process all applicants at the deadline
time thru the USTA/TDM software.
We always put the match schedule & draws online within 2 hours
of the deadline to help you plan your life at COD!

We decided to demolish the old facility so we can make the new
lights line up perfectly for everyone. We want to make sure you
aren't disappointed with our tournys, so make sure you tell us what
we are doing wrong; wag your finger to inform us on how we can grow
the game better; or submit a grievance on what we can do to make
your life at COD the best it can be. We apologize in advance for
NEW FOR THE 2011 AND BG10'S IN THE MIDWEST SECTION:
All BG10 Level 6 Challengers will play on a regulation size tennis
court but will be using the Green Ball. In addition, the scoring
format will always be two out of three sets with a Match Tiebreak
(superbreaker) in lieu of the third set. The Green Ball is 25 %
slower and lower bouncing than the Yellow Ball. This helps players
to continue to develop good technique, movement, as well as
implement advanced tactics. Both team and individual events are
played. The USTA/Midwest Section recommends this stage for training
and it is required in all Level 1-6 tournaments in the USTA/Midwest
Section Points Per Round Program.
