PLEASE CHECK THE DRAWS…….
We have had 11 withdrawals after the draws were done and
have replaced every withdrawal with an alternate. What does this mean???
Due to the nature of this event, every time a player withdraws we put them into
the bottom flight and move everyone else up. This means seedings in each
flight may change, players may move up a flight and individual match
times may change slightly. It’s a lot of work on our end but we
think it’s important in order to provide competitive matches in the way a Super
Series is intended.
I’m optimistic there’ll be no more withdrawals but in the
meantime EVERYONE should check the draws again today.
All matches will be played at Fremont Tennis Center, 1110
Stevenson Blvd., Fremont. Please check in 15 minutes before match time.
All draws are complete and if there is further changes to be made you will be
contacted via the email address used to register for this event.
Please contact Tennis@fremont.gov
if you have any questions or need to withdraw.
It is the players responsibility to check in, know the match format, both players
must report scores and know when they’re next match is. We are asking all
players to check in 15 minutes prior to the start of their match so we can keep
