Match times will be posted at 5 pm 11/29. With half of the competitors playing in 2 events match time on some matches will change depending on who wins vs loses. Always check in after your match for a possible time change for your next round.
You are expected to confirm you match times online at the end of each day. Please be respectful and stay within the 5 minute warm up time and come directly to the tournament desk to report your scores. An empty court backs up the day.
WEATHER is in the forecast. If it starts to rain and it looks like it will effect match times by more than 30 minutes I will post the delay online. We will not call you or text you regarding delays.
