Draws and Schedules are posted!
Please check your draws and your match times. Check in desk for all matches is at Rio Del Oro Racquet Club, 119 Scripps Drive, Sacramento CA 95825. Please check your draws and schedule frequently - there may be withdrawals that will affect your match times and there may be alternates placed in that may affect whom you play. Players are responsible for their match times and schedules.
Please be courteous to your opponents. If you can give timely notice for withdrawals that is always appreciated especially when players are coming from distances to play.
Remember the traffic to Sacramento can be awful at times. Give yourself plenty of travel time to make your match time if you are coming from outside the area. Lateness penalties will apply.
Let's hope for good playing weather and no delays. If the weather is not kind, please check the site for informational bulletins.If you think you can play your matches earlier and would like to do so, please check with your opponents first to make sure they are also free to do so. If both parties agree and if we have courts available, we will allow you to play earlier than scheduled. Remember that many players are playing both singles and doubles, and sometimes this manuever will simply not work. Also the courts are very booked up with matches, especially on Saturday morning and afternoon.
We wish everyone to have good matches and lots of fun.

All NTRP Players Must Have an NTRP Rating

Concurrent Tournament Rule
A player shall not be entered at the time entries close in two or more USTA sanctioned tournaments scheduled to take place at the same time, in whole or in part, unless each Tournament Committee involved understands the situation, concurs in writing, and each agrees to accommodate the player’s schedule. The final decision rests with each tournament committee. If one tournament agrees to accept concurrent entries and accommodate the player's schedule but the concurrent tournament does not, the player may not enter both. If entries for the overlapping tournaments close on different dates, approval must be received from all Tournament Committees no later than the entry closing date that occurs last. Players who enter a tournament and play it to completion, may then enter another tournament with overlapping dates without permission. If a player violates this concurrent tournament rule ranking points earned in any concurrent tournament played will not count toward ranking or the Grand Prix Points Race and the concurrent tournaments will not count toward the minimum tournament requirement to qualify for Grand Prix.
ALL NTRP MATCHES WILL START ON SATURDAY. Some Friday
afternoon/evening matches may be necesssary based on draw size in
the Men's Open Singles and a few senior events, based on draw size,
otherwise most draws will begin on Saturday, February 27th.
