opponents, give yourself extra time to drive to cod; drive around
the campus; get lost; call me to tell me you're lost and can't find
the courts etc...(i'm attaching a link to the SATELLITE view of the
tennis courts on google maps. It might be a good idea to
familiarize yourself with our location since 75% of first-timers
GET LOST searching for the courts...ie, some people go to downtown
Glen Ellyn, some go to an off-site COD campus in Carol Stream or
Naperville etc...our location is 425 Fawell and the courts are
tricky to find! Also, bathrooms are inside and NOT by the tennis
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!
(Only for those that register 7 days before the deadline. Register
by Friday, June 2, 11:59pm to get the t-shirt). 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 a famous architect 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: address is 425 Fawell Blvd, Glen
Ellyn. (fyi, courts are accessible thru "College Blvd" and cannot
be reached from Fawell).
All the athletic fields are next to each other
(football/baseball/track/tennis) - signs are on campus directing
you to the athletic fields, which are by the Physical Education
Center (PEC). Courts are VERY difficult to find. Please allow
enough time to circle the campus before you call me to tell me that
you're lost...all I can do is tell you to look for the football
light poles and then see the tennis light poles directly to the
north & slightly east. Please plan enough time for
newbies...our hands are tied by USTA rules...
TOURNAMENT OFFICIATING: This level 5 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
SCORING: 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 consolation to the semifinals if
weather and court availability allows and the Tournament Director
reserves the right to adjust the consolation draw to accommodate a
more fluid scheduling of matches...
SCHEDULE OF PLAY: On Mon/TueWed/Thurs/Friday, we do our best to
start junior matches 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.
DRAW SIZE: 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.

at the deadline time thru the USTA/TDM software.
