PARENTS, COACHES AND PLAYERS READ THIS!!!!
Per Friend At Court, it is the Winner's responsibility to report
the score. This means the tournament desk will only accept reporting from the
Winner. If you are the loser of a match and you are concerned the score may not
be reported correctly; you should accompany the winner to the desk to report
the score. If there is a dispute, the players can take that moment to talk it
out while it is fresh in their minds and agree on a score for the winner to
report to the desk. We will not "track down games" for the
loser days or even hours after a match. Too much time has lapsed to
try to get the winner to remember the score the way the loser wants it
