Draws and Other Details/Logistics Below
Please take a look at the link below and look for your match time(s). Plan on arriving at the courts at least 30 minutes before your scheduled match time. Once you get to the courts, check-in & warm-up!
We will be using Regular Pro Set Scoring. Here’s how scoring works:
- Matches are Regular 6 game pro sets. The first to 6 games wins.
- If a set goes to 6 games all, play a regular 7-point tiebreaker to decide the set. 10-point tie breakers are: first to 10 points wins and with win-by-2 scoring.
- We will play with no ad scoring.
Once you’re on court
After you’ve signed in, we will assign you and your opponent to an open court. We will provide balls at check in please return balls at the end of each match and use only one can. The winner will take the unused can and use it for the next match.
Warm ups will be 5 minutes and please keep in mind that we have lots of matches scheduled this weekend so let’s keep playing moving.
Once you finish, report your score and stick around to watch more tennis!
Reminder, if you feel sick or have any symptoms, please let us know and we’ll replace your spot in the draw with someone from the waiting list. Stay safe!!
