Match Schedule Info - Future Match Info
First of all, I appologize for the rain delay and matches played later indoor yesterday trying to finish certain rounds so we didn;t have to play too many matches and be here longer than neccesary. Thanks for your patent and understanding and everything went well this morning without the rain even some of you have to play 3 rounds of singles and one doubles. Have a safe trip home and I hope to see you again soon.
TOMORROW TIMES POSTED ... Please check your division 9:17 update
Rain rain go away. A special thanks to all the players and parents who have been bumped around today. Having 4 of the 6 outside sites hit with rain multible times has been difficult on all of us. Nevertheless, we have not had to cancel a single division and tomorrow is a new day. If your division time is not up it will be so soon as some matches were finishing indoors. Please check with your site director tomorrow as the format you will play will return to a normal best of three sets (with tiebreak for the third) *note that some consolation rounds must be played as short sets to be consistent with all the other matches already played in the round.
Again thank you for your understanding and patience.....
