Match Format and Inclement Weather Information
All main draw matches will be the best of three sets. There will be a feed-in back draw as well as additional opportunities for play. The tournament format, whether round robin or draw, will be determined by the number of teams entered. Each team will play a minimum of three matches unless playing conditions prohibit. If matches are relocated to indoor facilities or to our clay courts, pro-sets or a tiebreak in lieu of a third set may be used at the tournament director’s discretion. If play is moved indoors, there may be an additional charge for court time.

The schedule of all matches will be posted at Longwood, and players must report at their set time. Match schedules are subject to change due to weather. Those not present when matches are called may be defaulted. In case of rain or cessation of play for any reason, players shall not leave the grounds until they have contacted the referee regarding the resumption of play. In all such cases, matches may be played in a manner that will best advance the whole of such competitions irrespective of all previous schedules. At the direction of the committee, matches may be completed on surfaces other than grass. There will be playoffs for 3rd and 4th place in the main draw. All matches in the main draw and feed-in draw will count towards your national ranking. Play will move indoors as a last resort to ensure tournament completion.

We ask all players who lose their matches to do their best to play in the consolation draw as many players travel a long distance to participate in our tournament. If you are unable to play, please let the front desk know that you are withdrawing: (617) 731 - 2900.
