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.
