Courts Update Sunday 8:15 am
The courts at the Courtyard Tennis Club are slightly wet and are drying quickly thanks to the nice sunshine We are not making any changes on the draws. Expect an hour delay, but come to the Club, enjoy the breakfast tacos, while they last, and get to see great matches. Due to the number of finals, only some matches will have chair umpires.
Remember that all matches will be the best of three regular tie break sets. Good luck to all and congratulations to all finalists.

Dear Tournament Players,
Changes have been made in several draws due to withdrawals and conflicts. We have done our best to schedule matches giving players the required rest time, especially when they are playing more than one division. Players may now have to switch facilities due to court restrictions. Any adjustments needed to allow the proper rest time will be made by the Site Directors or Referee when you report your scores. Please check your draws often to make sure you are aware of these changes.
Player Packages: Will be available starting on Thursday from 4-7pm at Courtyard. They will be available until the end of the tournament.
Players' Party and Karaoke Night: Saturday night at Courtyard at 6:00 pm. Dinner and drinks will be served. Unfortunately, due to the number of matches, you may be scheduled to play during the Players Party. If you RSVP, we will do our best to set aside a dinner plate for you (and you still get your 2 drink tickets!)
* Party and drinks are complimentary for players
* $20 for guests to be paid by clicking below via PayPal now
Food options: Friday and Saturday, a food truck will be available at Courtyard (Fri 10-4; Sat 10-2). The grills at Lost Creek and World of Tennis will be open on a limited basis. Please check their schedule of operations when you check in. We will provide breakfast tacos for players on Sunday morning at Courtyard
Daylight Savings: Sunday is Daylight Savings time, so be sure to set your clocks back Saturday night.
Other important information: Just a reminder that dogs are not allowed at the various sites. If you have any questions, please do not call us or text us. Please send us an email to: email@example.com
We are looking forward to having you in Austin,
Fernando and CATA Staff

Dear Simply the BEST – 2018 Texas Adult Master Championship
We have posted the draws for the tournament . Since the tournament
is based on round robins, for the most part, we have done our best to schedule
to not to conflict with your divisions and trying to give you the appropriate rest
time between events. All efforts have
been made to keep you on the same site on Friday and Saturday, but in several
cases, we were not able to do so, due to court availability and player availability.
As the tournament progresses, we may be making several changes to make sure we
are giving players the proper rest time between matches.
Championship draws on Sunday will be posted after the round robins have been completed on Saturday
and we have the final list of the qualified players.
We will send another detailed email later in the week with
more specifics on the registration, Players’ Party, etc.
Until then, if you have net yet submitted
your approval to join the Communication Center, we urge you to do so. For the Masters, we will be using
the USTA’s Communication Center to communicate with players via text and email.
We need everyone to subscribe to receive these messages. We will still post to
the Home Tournament Page, but Communication Center will be the best way to
receive messages in a timely manner. Please go to this link and
follow the instructions to subscribe to receive them. If it only says
“unsubscribe” then you are already in and do not have to do anything else. Only 70 players have joined this great way to communicate via text and email on a timely basis.
Again, if you have any questions,
please do not call us or text us. Please
send us an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We are looking forward to seeing
you next weekend
Fernando Velasco, Tournament Director and Larry Eichenbaum, Referee
