BEFORE THE TOURNAMENT
Times & Location
Please refer to the tournament website to confirm the location and time of your first match. Match Times will be posted 3 days in advance, so check the website well in advance before the day of the tournament.
Double check the website the day before the event for any important messages or changes in match start times.
After the match, players should confirm when the next match time is. This information is located on the tournament website or posted at the main site.
All important information about the tournament is on the tournament website.
This is necessary to avoid no-show defaults, match delays and player suspension points. Players who fail to show up to their match and do not have a valid reason will receive 5 suspension points (default, no-show).
If both players are at the site, ready to play, and there are courts available, then they can begin their match before the scheduled start time.
Even if players are at the site, they are immediately placed on the clock once their start time has passed, and will receive penalties for being late to the tournament desk.
ON COURT ISSUES
If there is an on-court dispute between players, a player must immediately seek a tournament official to solve the issue.
A parent or observer may not call a referee for a match under any circumstances. This is to avoid confrontation and grievances wrongly filed against a player.
