Only the Saturday matches are affected.
The draws are now updated to reflect the delayed start and the reduced format.

*** All NTRP Players Must Have an NTRP Rating ***
All players participating in a USTA NorCal
sanctioned NTRP tournament must have an NTRP rating. If you do not have
an NTRP rating, please click "more info" to obtain a self-rating. ==>
*** Concurrent Tournament Rule ***
A player shall not be entered at the time
entries close in two or more USTA sanctioned tournaments scheduled to
take place at the same time, in whole or in part, unless each Tournament
Committee involved understands the situation, concurs in writing, and
each agrees to accommodate the player’s schedule. The final decision
rests with each tournament committee. If one tournament agrees to accept
concurrent entries and accommodate the player's schedule but the
concurrent tournament does not, the player may not enter both. If
entries for the overlapping tournaments close on different dates,
approval must be received from all Tournament Committees no later than
the entry closing date that occurs last. Players who enter a tournament
and play it to completion, may then enter another tournament with
overlapping dates without permission. If a player violates this
concurrent tournament rule ranking points earned in any concurrent
tournament played will not count toward ranking or the Grand Prix Points
Race and the concurrent tournaments will not count toward the minimum
tournament requirement to qualify for Grand Prix.
