We will only utilize hard courts if necessary. Senior level draws will NOT be played on hard courts. If entries and/or weather requires it, we will utilize the courts at Rawls Creek Tennis Club as a back-up.

LATE ENTRIES: No late entries will be allowed. All players must be registered, and entry fees paid by the close of registration. If you registered your partner and did not pay their fee, they need to register themselves and pay by the deadline or both players will be removed from the draw.

MATCH PLAY FORMAT: Best two out of three sets with a match tie-breaker being played in lieu of a full third set will be used for all matches in the main draw and consolation rounds.
