Update Thursday, Oct 30
Mother Nature is partly cooperating with the
tournament. The latest forecast is mostly
sunny Friday to Sunday with temperatures ranging from 41-66 degrees. Currently, there is no rain predicted.
Players’ Packages will be available for pick up from
Courtyard Swim and Tennis Club on Thursday from 4-6 pm, and then through-out
the weekend. For those that pre-ordered a
Masters shirt, it will be available in your players’ package when you arrive. All
others will have a chance to buy one of the limited supply of extra shirts we
ordered on a first come/first served basis.
We hope you will attend the Players’ Party being held at
Courtyard on Saturday from 6-8 pm. We
will have Mexican food from “Santa Rita Cantina”. All efforts have been made to
bring most of the matches to Courtyard to allow for maximum participation. During the party we will have an “informal”
pickleball tournament and will set up a few other yard games.
The snack bars at both Lost Creek Country Club and
Courtyard will be open for food and drink purchases Friday and Saturday. The Restaurant at World of Tennis is being
renovated and will not be open. We will have a food truck from “El Xolo Tacos”
on Friday and Saturday in the World of Tennis parking lot. They offer a good menu of appetizers and main
dishes. They accept cash or credit cards.
They will also be on-hand to serve lunch items at Courtyard on Sunday.
Again, congratulations for playing. Dress warmly and good luck in your matches.
Tentative Schedule of Matches
In order to avoid players' schedule conflicts, we had to change slightly the schedule of play:
Singles: Friday, 1 round; Saturday, 2 rounds- Finals on Sunday
Doubles: Friday, 2 rounds; Saturday: 1 round - Finals on Sunday
Mixed Doubles: Friday: 1 round; Saturday: 1 round: Sunday : 1 round and Finals
Matches will be played on three sites on Friday (CTY, LCCC and WOT); four sites on Saturday (add WLHS), and move to one site on Sunday (CTY).
All efforts have been made to schedule matches early enough on Saturday to allow players to attend the Players' Party at Courtyard from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm.
Final draws will be posted on Sunday evening.
