Singles and doubles draws have been posted.
DRAWS WILL BE POSTED THURSDAY EVENING. PLAY WILL BEGIN FRIDAY EVENING.
Scoring: Singles and Doubles will play two out of three sets with a match tiebreak in lieu of a thrid set.
Club along with the USTA-NC office are working together to ensure a great
experience is had by all. To do that,
with this particular tournament having a multitude of draws, we feel it is
imperative that we get ahead of the game and make you aware of a few of the
procedures that will be used in the decision-making process of;
a. whether or not to hold a draw as well as b. when draws will be combined and c. if there is weather (being rain or intense
heat) which scoring format will be used.
Our Plan is as
1. If you see that no one has entered in the
specific draw you are wishing to register…please go ahead and register in it so
others may see that and register in that draw as well. Many players play the waiting game… J
2. If at the close
of registration there are no other players in your draw or if there are only a
total of 2 players in a draw, we WILL combine
this draw with another draw (as rules allow) so all players will be able to play!
If there is rain or intense heat, scoring
will go to No-Ad 1st, then shorts sets to 4 or an 8-game pro set.
