More players needed for Girls 10s and 18s singles, Girls 12s doubles, Boys 16s and 18s doubles
In an attempt to avoid event cancellation, I am keeping entries open through end-of-day, Mon 22nd
These events will be held on the 2nd weekend only (27-28th), limited to 3 matches maximum. Email email@example.com if interested. We may make them round-robin format if there are only 3 entries. Events with less than 3 players or teams.by midnight Monday will be canceled.
Our VOLUNTEER staff will be dressed in Blue Camo - Thank You to Ernie Blando who manages the staff
This year will be the first year when our staff will be in matching uniforms for easy identification. My hope is that everyone will be polite and patient and with the desk staff, who are all unpaid volunteers giving their time to make this event happen. If you find yourself getting angry at a situation, please don't take it out on the staff. Ask yourself, how many hours do I volunteer to help at these events? If we had to pay our staff, this tournament would not be able to exist because it would not generate any funds for the club.
I want to especially thank my partner-in-crime, Ernie Blando, who has not only volunteered time to manage desk staff for every tournament I have directed in the past 6 years, but also volunteers countless hours coordinating Jr Team Tennis year after year, which nurtures and develops young players into the world of the junior competition and tournaments. This tournament would not be the same high caliber and receive so many compliments without his contribution.
Red Camo style Performance Shirt to each and every player
As in the past 5 years, performance shirts will be given to every player thanks to the generous sponsorship of the Moores family. On the 2nd weekend, performance shirts from prior years will be made available for sale. This year's shirts are red camouflage (red w black camo markings)
Artsy figurine Trophies
I was able to source the unique, high-quality, artsy figurine trophies again this year (no supply last year). These are the ones from the first 5 years, not the common column trophies I was forced to give out for 2nd place last year. I have not seen any other tournament in SoCal give out this type of trophy.
1st match loser consolation for B12d, B14d, G12s, G14d
In an effort to provide better value, these events with small draws will include consolation matches. Thus, teams and players in these events are guaranteed two matches..
Westwood Sports will provide priority quick turnaround stringing
Westwood Sports will pick rackets up at 2PM and 6PM (if there is demand) for rapid response stringing on weekend days.of the tournament. If you faster turnaround is needed, the player can get priority "stringing while you wait" at the store.
