The event will begin with first round matches on Thursday, the 24th as early as 8 a.m. and ending by approximately 4 p.m. There is a possibility that players may play up to 3 matches in the day. Friday will see the continuation of singles competition.
Scoring: we will play 2 out of 3 no-ad sets with a match tiebreaker in lieu of the 3rd set.
Trophies: awards for Champion and Finalist.
T-shirts and goodie bags for all participants.
In order for an event to run as a regular draw we need a minimum of 4 entrants (3 players will allow us to run a round robin).
Please read through this homepage before signing up for the tournament as many questions are addressed here.
GET SIGNED UP/WHY WAIT?:
Please do not "wait" for other players to sign up. This is something that circles back and then few people sign up until the last minute. If you are free and want to play...sign up. Other "waiting" people will see names and then sign up too and Tah-Dah...we have a nice draw with healthy competition for all!

USTA CONTACT INFORMATION:
Procedure for tournament registration: because of Privacy Laws, your contact information from USTA membership does not show up in the Tournament Director's software anymore. Only what you indicate during the registration process shows up. We have no way of contacting you if you leave those fields blank when signing up. This means, for example, if your opponent withdraws at the last minute due to injury, illness, or a family emergency you might make a trip to the tournament and not need to if we had a way of reaching you. You must indicate all phone numbers, home and cell (a MUST), email addresses and more for each USTA tournament registration, EACH and EVERY time, for each and every tournament you enter, even if you have played a tournament with Naperville before.
Please call/email Naperville Tennis Club (630)355-5600 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure you reference the name of the tournament, player's name, and age group as we do have a lot of tournament overlap.
