IMPORTANT! Due to a new policy from the USTA's legal department,
tournament directors will no longer have access to phone numbers
and email addresses of the tournament participants unless the
player re-enters their contact information at time of event
registration. This means that if a player does not enter their
phone and email information each time they register for a
tournament, the tournament director cannot contact them for any
reason, including withdrawals, defaults, byes, rain delays, etc.
Your cooperation will ensure that tournaments can continue to
communicate necessary information to you. Thank you. Burns Park
