and regular scoring timed 4 game short sets will be used as the format w
no add scoring. The 12s will use a 78ft full court with a green dot
ball. It is not coed and regular 6 game sets will be the match format
with regular scoring. Doubles is required and you may sign up with a
partner or we will pair you up unless there is an odd player out. The
doubles format will be a 10 point tie break for all divisions. All
draws are limited to 8 singles and 4 doubles. However, if this is a
stand alone tournament where no other age groups or divisions play
besides the orange and green then we will accept most all players.

Please check your start time on friday just in case your opponent has withdrawn and your schedule changes!
