SELECTION FOR SINGLES AND DOUBLES!!!
Please note that after entries close, USTA NorCal will be doing the singles
No one will be entered into doubles until all of the singles
selections are made and players are entered into the tournament. Players who
have confirmed partners should notify the tournament referee by Sunday,
August 24th, so that appropriate pairings are made. Players who wish to play
doubles but don't have partners will be randomly paired by the tournament
before the doubles draws are made. If you do not wish to be randomly paired for
doubles, you must make sure you are out of the doubles list by Sunday,
August 24th. The tournament cannot guarantee that all players will be paired if
there is an uneven number of entrants. A player may be drawn randomly to be the
first alternate in that situation.
