Withdrawals and defaults may occur through out the weekend.
Lastly, please FAMILIARIZE yourself with CONSOLATION rules of play. (No-Ad scoring)
It can be confusing at times.
Communication with tournament director is key, so that calmer heads prevail during the tournament.
All Singles divisions are limited to 16 players with a feed in draw (Through The Quarterfinals).
There will also be a playoff for third & fourth in the semi-finals.
Please take this into account when deciding what event to enter.
The top 16 players in the division will be chosen for each event; so if you are playing in a higher age group for which you do not have ranking points you will mostly likely not be chosen for that event if the event reaches the maximum number of 16 players.
I suggest entering your current age group and notify me by email if you would like to play a higher division.
If space allows I may allow you to move up to the higher division once the deadline has closed and I have the final count.
FULL FEED IN CONSOLATION IN SINGLES DRAWS
We will have FULL FEED IN CONSOLATION up through the quarterfinals in all SINGLES draws larger 6 players and greater
A play-off for 3rd and 4th place match will be scheduled for all BG10s-18s divisions 6 players and greater

Great Sports Pins
In an effort to promote good behavior and sportsmanship in junior
tennis, we are starting our “Great Sports” program at select junior
tournaments across the state. Officials will now be able to award good
behavior by presenting sportsmanship pins to juniors who exemplify
exceptional sportsmanship during a match or tournament.
Examples of pin awards that occurred this past year at trial events:
* A player assisting an opponent who was cramping
* A player who offered one of her rackets to her opponent after the opponent had broken all of her strings.
* A singles match played between two young players with exemplary
behavior with parents that clapped for all good shots and congratulated
each other’s child on their behavior after the match.
Officials may use their discretion when selecting pin recipients.
They may also act on parent’s or player’s recommendations for other
children. Officials will be asked to document the name, age group, and
event when a pin is awarded, and a sentence about why they were chosen.
Recipients will be eligible for the annual sportsmanship awards given
at the NC Tennis weekend in Pinehurst, but a junior may still win an
annual award without winning a pin during the year.
Wilson US Open Extra Duty Tennis Balls
This tournament will be using in all matches Wilson US Open Extra Duty balls.
