SINGLES DRAWS ARE VISIBLE
The singles draws are visible as of 1245PM on Wednesday. Please check the times and all play will be at the LPTC in Marietta.
DOUBLES WILL BE PLAYED!
Doubles is making a comeback but do not expect it to happen on Friday. Do not expect it to happen EARLY on Saturday. The doubles will be played LATER on Saturday and LATER on Sunday. This is to do it where we will be able to keep the numbers of players to a minimum and avoid CoVid situations. We will be playing full 8 game pro sets and using regular scoring as long as the weather holds out for us. As the tournaments wind down so do the numbers of players on the courts. So we are always thinking in order to get it done and not cancel but at the same time be safe! Please try and find a partner and enter the doubles! We will take entries until Friday for the doubles only in events where we now already have established players and draws! At this point we will not take doubles entries where no players entered. Please play up and play doubles! Doubles is the best and doubles is where we see the most fun and smiles!
