Matches will start at 6pm Friday and 4pm Saturday, may go onto Sundays depending on court space. IF you have have time conflicts you MUST EMAIL Tournament Director Rob Lehner firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday of tournament week. All conflicts will be considered but they cannot be promised. If you have conflicts for the first day of matches do not register for the tournament. Please email Rob if you have questions that is the best mode of communication.
Please check in 15 minutes before your scheduled match time. Be ready to go on the court, ready to play. Remember when you check in the tournament director is assuming you are ready to go on court at that time. Matches go on court in the order of arrival of both players. If both participants are early and a court becomes available, those checked in first, go on first. There will be a 10 minute warmup. If players split sets you have a 3 minute break before players begin the third set ten point super tiebreaker. If players don’t know how to play the super tiebreaker they can raise their rackets and ask the tournament director.
All applicants will be considered. We will take a full 32 players in each age division. Rankings and seedings are done through the USTA Tournament software. Draws will be posted on the Wednesday of the tournament. If you are worried about players from the same program playing against one another please email Rob Lehner. It is hard for each club to know where and what program players are in so any help in that is much appreciated. We will try our best but in local tournaments players will play one another at some point during the tournament.

Wickertree Tournament Policy
We ask that all spectators sit at least one court away from the perspective court of the player they come to watch. This is to avoid issues of coaching or communication with spectators which is illegal according to USTA rules. This should allow players to concentrate on why they are there while developing the responsibility of being your own line judge and manager. If players have conflicts on court PLAYERS must ask for a line judge to help mediate.
