WEDNESDAY May 23: Always check back here for updates! Draws and
times are up for all matches! Please check your specific age
category for details. Fyi, on Saturday COD is having HS graduations
so the parking lot next to the tennis courts & football field
might be closed...so be prepared to WALK a bit to the courts. 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/late 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...i.e., some people
go to downtown Glen Ellyn, some go to an off-site COD campus in
Carol Stream or Naperville etc...our school address is 425 Fawell,
BUT the courts are nowhere near the main office **hundreds of yards
away*** and the courts are tricky to find! Also, bathrooms are
inside and NOT by the tennis courts.
