Adult / Senior / Super Senior players and teams:
USTA rules state that in a Round Robin draw, "a player who is
defaulted for any reason other than lateness shall not play in
subsequent matches and may not be declared the winner of the
round robin." [Friend at Court Reg. II.B.6.d.] Therefore, if a
player or team defaults, they will not be allowed to play the
Rounds following that defaulted match, and if subsequent matches
are played, the draw will be changed to show default(s) which will
result in win(s) for the opposing player(s) or team(s).
No Selection Process. All registered players will be selected.
Entry to this tournament is open to all USTA members. Entries must be submitted by Thursday, August 16, 2018 11:59:00 PM Central Time. Only USTA members can register online if available.
