TOURNAMENT IS CANCELLED
As you may know from my Tournament message, the new clay courts at Polo Tennis Club will not be ready in time for the tournament. The issue we had was three days of rain that delayed the prep work to get courts in good conditions for aggressive tournament play. We need approximately 6 hours of rolling per day in order to get courts compact and firm enough for safe play. This will not begin until Friday June 21. As a result, I did not feel comfortable to run the event before we have all courts in good playing condition for safety and comfort for all our players.
You have two options:1. Full refund, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Move your entry to our next Clay court event on July 5-8.
please email email@example.com directly for your preference
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused but I do appreciate every ones patience and understanding for the safety of our players.
