Match check in process
NEW RULE FOR MATCH CHECK IN:/
Regulation IV.A.2 now states "The referee may penalize a player who is on site for lateness if a court is available and the player has failed to check in at the tournament desk by the scheduled match time."
This means, if there is one open court at 10:00 and there are three matches to put on the referee will start the clock for lateness for anyone who has not checked in for the 10:00-- Even though there are not enough courts for all three matches.
1. The first matches of each will begin promptly at 8:00 please be checked in and on your court at 7:45.
2. For all matches after 8:00 , please check in at the tournament desk 15 minutes before your sceduled match time. do not wait until 9:59 to check in for a 10:00 match. PLEASE go to the BATHROOM,FILL YOUR WATER BOTTLE ,ETC before you check in.
3. Once you have checked in, please stay near the tournament desk until we tell you the court assignment. You must be where you can hear us call your name after you check in.
4.We will be watching the clock for lateness. please do not ask us if your opponent has checked in - you have other things to think about. The staff and the Referee will take care of lateness issues you need only to worry about your own timeliness.
On Saturday, we will only have one person checking in players for the tournament (those that did not come the night before). Obviously this is not enough to check in everyone 30 minutes before their match times. If you are not on your court by your assigned match time, you will be penalized. Because you did not check-in the night before, is no excuse for being late for your match. We cannot predict if there will be 5 people or 50 people waiting to check in when you do. You cannot play your match until you have checked in for the tournament. If there is a line that causes you to be late for your match, unfortunately that will be your problem that could have been avoided. Therefore, we urge all of you to check-in on Friday, this includes Locals, Commuters and Travelers. We will be there until 7 pm on Friday. Remember that Central Time Zone people will lose an hour.
Thank you for your cooperation.
