All the draws have been posted... Please be sure and check your times and location. There are several matches scheduled at Rebsamen Tennis Center on Sunday. If we fall behind late Saturday, I may have to move some matches to Rebsamen as well. Good news is we should be dry the entire weekend.

Plese check back on a regular basis for updates... Travis
Update Friday 12:45am:
Its been a crazy day with the site being down and I'm ready for bed. Couple notes first, I made a few time adjustments to the draw on Saturday but not much. Always a good idea to keep checking the draws and this page for updates. I will be taking the draws down for a short time around noon tomorrow to fill in the rest of the matches. My goal was to run the entire tournament here at Chenal and that still a good possibility through all of Saturday. However, if we fall behind on Saturday afternoon I will most likely move some of the later matches to Rebsman Tennis Center. Furthermore, to keep the tournament from running to late on Sunday we will have matches scheduled at Rebsman, so be sure to look at the draw closely on Suday. Any matches scheduled at Rebsamen will have Rebs next to the match time.
Update: Thursday 8:35pm
For those that don't know the usta tennis link and software went down today at noon. I just now have access back on the site to do the draws. I will have all the first round matches up by 10pm this evening if not sooner. Sorry for any inconvenience...
