Important Information about Sunday Matches
Check your individual draws to see WHERE you are playing. All Main Draw events will be moved to NTC. Consolation matches may not be at the site where you played on Saturday (Double check). There will be some consolation at NTC (Double check your draw).
DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME:move your clocks ahead 1 hour when you go to bed. Make sure your check with your hotel if you are asking for a wake up call.
First Match Times and Publishing Draws
First Match Times will be published by 5pm on Thur. Draws will be published at Noon on Friday.
Singles Dependent Draw
We will hold dependent draws in all the singles events. Dependent draws will start on Sunday Morning and hopefully be made up of 4 players in each. We will play out the dependent draws. This means that if you win the first round of the dependent draw you will play the final Sunday afternoon.
All players will play Saturday.
The dependent draw is for players who lose twice on Saturday.
How it works: Players are scheduled to play a first round match in the main
draw of their age group (which will be a draw of16). If they lose they would go
into the consolation. If they lose in the first round of the consolation they
would be assigned to the dependent draw that would include other players from
their specific draw. Two matches (1 main and 1 consolation) would be played on
Saturday. The Dependent draw will start Sunday morning.
