In the event of cooperative weather, no matches will be played early without: 1. Explicit permission from the Head Referee, 2. Consent from all 2/all 4 Players, 3. Play of an early match begins by 4:00, and 4. Play does not involve removing chair umpires from scheduled matches. All 4 conditions must be present in order for a match to be played early.
MANDATORY TOURNAMENT CHECK IN:
Mandatory means just that. We are staying until 9:00 pm for your
convenience. We feel strongly that you should be able to make it by
For those of you that "just cant make it by that time" need to do the following and please do not call and ask for permission to miss check-in:
1- Make sure your entry fee has been paid - check the Tournament Entry Fee Report when posted.
2 - Email or Fax in your Medical Release Waiver WITH your CELL phone numbers & HOTEL info completed to 251/208-5195.
3 - Show up 30 minutes before your match time to check in. Please be patient
with us when checking in, we will be focused on getting matches on and
off the court. Checking in people at this time will be a detriment to
4 - Those of you playing 8:00 am matches at the Mobile Tennis Center
will need to be on your assigned court at 7:45. Make sure you allow
yourself plenty of time.
For most of the day on Saturday we will only have one person checking in players for the
tournament (those that did not come the night before). Obviously this
is not enough to check in everyone 30 minutes before their match times.
If you are not on your court by your assigned match time, you will be
penalized. Because you did not check-in the night before, is no excuse
for being late for your match. We cannot predict if there will be 5
people or 50 people waiting to check in when you do. You cannot play
your match until you have checked in for the tournament. If there is a
line that causes you to be late for your match, unfortunately that will
be your problem that could have been avoided. Therefore, we urge all of
you to check-in on Friday this includes Locals, Commuters and Travelers.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Non-Seeded girls who have byes first round may check in Saturday by 2:00, but you MUST still send in your waiver and contact information Friday.
Mandatory Check-In for Seeded Players is Saturday, 6/13, 3:00 - 6:00 pm. Seeded players can check in at anytime Friday or Saturday, but registration during the designated time will be quickest.
