BEFORE THE DEADLINE, FAILURE TO WITHDRAW YOURSELF WILL LEAD TO YOUR SELECTION FOR THIS EVENT!
Singles Draws will Have 5th/6th Place Playoff
Quarter-finalist losers will go into their own consolation draw. You can find this playoff draw in the consolation section of your player's draw on the tournament homepage. Those 4 players will playoff and the 2 winners go to the 5th/6th place playoff. The 7th/8th place playoff between the losers of the first round playoff matches will NOT be played out (it will be recorded as "Unplayed"). We have done this to remove one round from the consolation draw so we are not forced to play three rounds of consolation singles on either Friday or Saturday. Please email the tournament director if you have any questions (firstname.lastname@example.org).
ORANGE LEVEL 1 AND 2 DRAWS!!!
We will be running Orange Level 1 and Orange Level 2 draws for singles and doubles. Singles draws will be limited to 16 players each, boys and girls, Orange Level 1 and Orange Level 2. Doubles draws will be limited to 16 teams (32 players) each, boys and girls, and will be a combination of Orange Level 1 and Orange Level 2 players. Doubles will be played on Friday evening only, singles play will start on Saturday morning and run through Sunday.
Orange Level 1 singles will receive L4 tournament points and Orange Level 2 singles will receive L5 tournament points. Orange Ball Doubles will receive NC L4 points.
Doubles Draw Format (NOT SINGLE ELIMINATION)
Doubles will NOT be single elimination. We will be running a Feed-in-Consolation, but will only be playing the consolation out through it's third round of play. The 3rd/4th playoff will only be played on Wednesday and will not be rescheduled for another day for any reason. The 3rd/4th playoff match may be the 5th doubles match of the day for some teams which is allowed by the scheduling regulations in Friend at Court.
We have done this so doubles teams have the possibility of playing more than one single match. Consolation matches will only be played on Wednesday (Thursday for the 10 and Under Division). In the event of weather impacting doubles play, consolation matches will be the first matches canceled, and the 3rd/4th playoff will be the second round of matches canceled. Main draw doubles matches may be scheduled after Wednesday at the discretion of the Tournament Committee. Please email the tournament director if you have any questions (email@example.com).
