SUNDAY MATCH TIMES POSTED
Please check your match times for Sunday very carefully! Some rounds are scheduled out of order to accommodate players scheduling requests.
Please note that we will more than likely have to make adjustments to some match times as we go along! Especially for those playing in multiple events.
ENTIRE TOURNAMENT WILL BE PLAYED ON SATURDAY AUGUST 15!
We are using the Fast4 tournament format so we may be able to play the tournament in 1 day. Please note that this is NOT a weekend tournament. Hope to see you there!
SOUTHERN FAST4 TOURNAMENT FORMAT WILL BE USED!
Fast4 Tennis is an exciting, shortened format for playing matches. The shorter format will enable us to play the tournament in one day while providing you with a better experience! The FAST4 format is simple with four rules: 1. The first to four games wins the set. 2. No-ad scoring is used. 3. Service lets are played. 4. First-to-five-point tiebreakers apply at 3 games all.
We will be using a round robin format and hope to play a lot of matches!
Not including the tennislink fee, the entry fee for 1 event is $20. The entry fee for 2 events is $30.
