Monday Match Time Adjustments for B16 and B18 singles events
Because of player conflicts:
* The match time for the B16 and B18 semis are being changed, and the start times for the B16 and B18 finals are subject to change depending on the semifinal match outcomes. Essentially:
1. the B18 semis
remain as scheduled at 9:00AM
semis are moved to 11:00AM
both Mavanur and Kaushal lose their B18 semis, then the B18 final will
remain “as is” at 12:00PM. However, IF
either Mavanur or Kaushal win their B18 semi, then the B18 final will be
moved to “not before” 1:30pm (at least 30 minutes after the conclusion of
the affected B16 semi players still alive in the B18 main draw)
B16 Final will play at 1:30pm if neither Mavanur or Kaushal advance to it;
if either Mavanur or Kaushal are in the B16 Final AND ALSO alive in the
B18 final, then the B16 Final will start 30 minutes after the conclusion
of the B18 final that involves either/both of the B16 players.
In simplest terms,, the B18 semis will remain as is, and the
B18 final will play before the B16 Final in all scenarios. The B16 semis are
moved to 11:00am, with the B16 final playing either at 1:30pm (if neither
Mavanur or Kaushal advance to it) or at least 30 minutes after the B18 Final
Draws/Schedules Now Published
Draws and match schedules for all events are now published and can be viewed by players/parents.
PLEASE NOTE: as designed by the Section, this L6 tournament utilizes "2-day" scheduling. This means any given event is finished in no more than 2 consecutive days (Saturday and Sunday, OR Sunday and Monday). When reading your match schedule, pay careful attention to which of those days your event(s) play! All BG10 events will start and finish on Saturday.
(Note to BG10 parents: if your child is playing in a "red" or "white" flight, they will play a total of 3 matches -- 2 in their flight, plus one more against a player from the other flight. The 3rd match does not yet display in TDM because we pair the players Red 1 vs White 1, Red 2 vs. White 2, etc. and will not know the correct pairings until each flight is completed.)
Note also that FIC format is used to provide players maximum standing points and at least 2 matches in their events (where sufficient entries allow). Players are expected to play in all consolation matches for which they are scheduled, and per Section rule will be reported for Suspension Points and loss of Standings Points Earned if they (1) fail to appear for a consolation match without acceptable reason (injury; illness; or personal circumstance approved by the Referee) or (2) fail to provide opponents at least 3 hours notice of their intention not to play their next match, whether in the main draw or consolations.
Matches Played on Hard Courts, Both Indoors and Outdoors
Due to tournament size and requirement to finish each event within a 2-day period, the Tournament Desk may assign matches to either an indoor or outdoor hard court as it determines will best facilitate timely play.
Reminder: BG10 Events Limit Racket Size to 25"
Please remember that BG10 orange ball events require that players use a racket that is no greater than 25 inches in length. Players may not use a racket exceeding 25 inches in length at this tournament. Players should arrive with a "legal" racket. While we will try to have a few 25" rackets on hand as "loaners," we cannot guarantee we will have enough 25" rackets to accommodate every player.
This is an L6 tournament for boys and girls age 12-18, singles
and doubles. A 10&Under component including 8&under
competition will be held also.
