* DATES/SITES: This year's tournament is scheduled for May
25-29 in Louisville. You should fully plan on playing into
Wednesday as it is rare to get 4 consecutive days without rain. We
will be playing at Seneca Park, Bass-Rudd Tennis Center, Kentucky
Country Day High School, Top Gun Academy, and Mercy High School,
and Petersburg Park (10U Divisions).
* REGISTRATION DEADLINE: The registration deadline for the
event this year will be NOON on Friday, May 17th. THERE WILL BE
NO LATE REGISTRATIONS ACCEPTED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE. I
emphasize this because registration is open right now so you should
go ahead and register now. That way if you have computer issues we
can address them now. I am absolutely serious that there is not an
excuse that will allow late entries.
* DOUBLES DETAILS: The junior competition committee voted in
2017 to allow players to play singles in one age division and
doubles in a different age division. Players must register for
their respective doubles division by the registration deadline of
May 18th and must declare their doubles partner online by 5pm on
Monday, May 21st. We highly encourage parents/players to find their
own doubles partners.
* SEEDS/SCHEDULES: All seeds will be published by 5pm on
Tuesday, May 22nd. All first match times for singles/doubles and
complete draws will be published by 5pm on Wednesday, May 23rd. All
singles draws will be Feed-In Consolation through the Quarterfinals
and matches will be Best 2 out of 3 sets. All doubles draws will be
Single Elimination and 8-game pro-sets played.
* BIRTH CERTIFICATES: All players must have a birth
certificate on file with USTA Kentucky/USTA Southern to participate
in this event. Many of you will already have a birth certificate on
file if you have participated in the Creason or Southern-level
events in the past. If you are unsure if your birth certificate is
on file, you can check here. If you don't have a birth certificate
on file with USTA, you can either scan and email to me at
email@example.com or fax them to our office at (502) 491-1228.
Please check on these early so we don't have to hunt you down the
week of the tournament and bring your child's entry into the event
* 10 AND UNDER DIVISIONS: This year we will be holding both
a GREEN BALL and ORANGE BALL 10 and under division. The green ball
division will be eligible to only Green Level 1/Yellow Ball players
in the Youth Tennis Progression system. The orange ball division
will be eligible for those in Green Level 1 or Orange Level 1.
Players can only play in one division or the other. The green ball
division will be the division playing for the quota spots to the
Southern Closed Championships (info below). It is our plan,
depending on draw size, to complete the 10U divisions by Sunday,
For those looking into playing the Southern Closed Championship but
not able to play the Creason, you must fill out the following
waiver to be under consideration for one of Kentucky's allotted
spots. Please return this waiver by the registration deadline of
May 19th. You can find the waiver HERE.
* VOLUNTEERS: This is an event that runs at 4-6 sites at a
time so we can always use volunteers. If you would be interested in
volunteering at any time during the event, please let me know. You
will be given a training and not expected to run a site or
anything. You would simply be asked to support tournament staff at
tournament desks, keep sites neat and clean, and be a general
friendly face for the kids. We would schedule around your child's
matches if needed. Just please email me if you would be
