FIRST TIME TOURNAMENT PLAYERS AND PARENTS
contact Megan Preusch at the LTA office, at 225-769-0337 or by email
firstname.lastname@example.org, for any questions you may have.
For parents new to tournaments: After you sign up for the tournament, your credit card
will not be charged until after the deadline for everyone to register for the
tournament closes. For this tournament, Sunday, June 24, 2018 is the deadline
(1 minute before midnight) and the entries will be processed on Monday, which
is when your credit card will be charged.
With unpredictable weather, matches may have to be
shortened, moved, etc., to adjust for such conditions. These tournaments are
for the children, and we will do everything we can to help you with anything
you do not know or need help with. Feel free to email
Administration@AsAndAces.org with any questions before the tournament starts.
Please have your child check in at
the tournament desk at least 30 minutes prior to your child's first
scheduled match time. If courts are open, we will put your child's match on
sooner and help keep the tournament on schedule. Please keep in mind that there
is a 15 minute default period under USTA rules. A player who does not check in
by the time he/she is scheduled to play, will be put on the clock for being
late and penalized according to the rules in relation to the untimeliness.
After 15 minutes, the match is then defaulted and your child will not get to
play the match. This is why it is so important to check in early and plan to
arrive early in case there is traffic or an accident or anything that can delay
you arriving early/on-time.
Note: With unpredictable weather, the scoring
format may have to be shortened/modified
The best way to communicate with us before this tournament
is by email, NOT by phone. This is for documentation purposes and so that way
we can make sure nothing gets missed. Please adhere to this request and send
all questions/concerns via email to Administration@AsAndAces.org.
Once the tournament starts, please use the tournament desk
number(s) (504) 487-1147 as the best way to contact us. Emails may not be
checked regularly throughout the day as we are running the tournament.
