AUGUST 23/WEDNESDAY: IMPORTANT/READ THE FOLLOWING! Always check
back here for UPDATES (such as RAIN delays)! Draws and times are up
for all matches! Please check your specific age category for
details. Out of respect to your 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 NOT
by the tennis courts - you must go inside. We now have a water
fountain by the courts!
I repeat. Come early. There's a GREAT chance you'll get lost. You
will be penalized. You will have no one to blame but yourself.
