ALL USTA rules will be enforced during the tournament.
Contact the tournament desk ASAP if you are having directional issues (704 806 0909).
Withdrawals and defaults may occur through out the weekend.
Lastly, please FAMILIARIZE yourself with CONSOLATION rules of play.
It can be confusing at times.
Communication with tournament director is key, so that calmer heads prevail during the tournament.
Tournament Seedings (Based on 12/31/2019)
Doubles Seedings are based on the latest 2019 NC Standings List (Dec 31st) (Combined)

A lot of tennis will be played on Saturday

FULL FEED IN CONSOLATION
We will have FULL FEED IN CONSOLATION up through the quarterfinals in all Doubles Draws 6 teams and greater
A play-off for 3rd and 4th place match will be scheduled for all BG10s-18s divisions 6 teams and greater
All draws are limited to 8 teams (TO SECURE A ONE DAY EVENT) with a feed in draw (Through The Quarterfinals).
There will also be a playoff for third & fourth in the semi-finals.
Please take this into account when deciding what event to enter.
The top 8 teams will be chosen for each event,so if you are playing in a higher age group for which you do not have ranking points,
you will mostly likely not be chosen for that event if the event reaches the maximum number of 16 teams.
I suggest entering your current age group and notify me by email if you would like to play a higher division.
If space allows I may allow you to move up to the higher division once the deadline has closed and I have the final count.
Places To Stay
Exit 60 Dale Earnhardt is the closest and most direct exit to Les Myers Park.
Exit 49 is the exit for Concord Mills.
SEEDING & SELECTION PROCESS
All NC residents' NC Standings will take precedent.
For players who reside outside of NC, Southern Standings will be considered for seedings and selection.
When Southern and NC Standings conflict the tournament committee will decide on a case by case basis which standings shall be used.
Doubles seeding is applied by adding the two players ranking together and the lowest totals are the higher seeds.
Online Entries ONLY
Any alternate must have registered online
No "on-site" alternates are allowed unless they originally signed up online prior to entry deadline.
No LATE entries will be taken
STAY & PLAY
Everyone sees that I have scheduled matches pretty close together & we have a lot of tennis to rock out !!!
For the fact that I hope players plan on playing and then staying and play some more ....
Families, go out and grab food for the kiddoes, while players wait for a court ready to get back out into battle
Gonna be a beautiful sunny DAY or bunches of PLAY
