IMPORTANT TOURNAMENT INFORMATION
The tournament deadline is Thursday, October 29th. Player selections will be made on Friday, October 30th by 9pm. Each age division will have a maximum of 32 players split using the waterfall method into two 16-player compass draws. Each draw will be played over two days with a maximum of two matches per day. THERE ARE NO DOUBLES BEING OFFERED AS PART OF THIS EVENT.
The scoring format for all matches per USTA/Southern regulations for Level 3 events is best two-of-three sets with a match tiebreaker to 10 in lieu of a third set with regular ad scoring.
All matches will be played at one of three sites:
Queens University Tennis Center (QSC on drawsheets) 2229 Tyvola Road, Charlotte, NC 28210
Jeff Adams Tennis Center (JATC on drawsheets) 1200 W. Tyvola Road, Charlotte, NC 28217
Park Road Park (PRP on drawsheets) 6225 Park Road, Charlotte, NC 28210
It is possible we may add a fourth site if necessary due to the number of participants. Information will be given at a later time if that occurs.
There will not be practice courts on site during the tournament, but you may warm-up at the site prior to the 8am matches. More information on practice courts will also be given after the registration deadline.
Per USTA/North Carolina policies, there will NOT be scoring devices or chairs/benches for players on the courts. It is suggested that players bring their own chairs and scoring devices if necessary.
When a player checks in on Match Tennis App, they will receive a court assignment when their court is ready. Players will then have five minutes to be on court ready to play. If a player checks-in less than five minutes prior to their schedule match time, then they will not receive the five minutes to get to court before lateness penalties will be applied (see below).
Lateness penalties will be strictly enforced. Players should be at their playing site and check-in on the Match Tennis App 15 minutes prior to their match time. Lateness penalties will be based on the time that the player arrives at their court and ready to play, NOT when they check-in on Match Tennis App. If a player checks in on the Match Tennis App at 9:57 for a 10am scheduled match, but does not arrive to their court until 10:03, they will be penalized for lateness, even though they checked in on the app before their match time.
All scores for matches should be entered into Match Tennis App before leaving the court. To enter your score, please click the link that was sent with your court assignment.
Any withdrawals before or during the event or retirements during a match must send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the reason for the withdrawal or retirement.
Please make sure you have reception at your playing site and ARRIVE EARLY IN CASE YOU DO HAVE CONNECTION ISSUES.
If you have issues with Match Tennis App, please hit the GREEN CIRCLE on the app to chat directly with a technical support specialist at MTA. Site Directors and Tournament Committee members do not have the technical knowledge to assist you.
Technical issues in using Match Tennis App are NOT a reason for players and their guests to NOT use the app for check-in, court assignments and score reporting. If you do not have cell service at your playing site and are unable to use the app, you may call or send a text to 828-406-7383 (at least 15 minutes prior to your match time) so we can find a way to address the situation. Communication received within 15 minutes of your match time will not be able to be handled before the match is called to court.
Although we do not expect any inclement weather, the scoring format could be changed in the case of rain.
