WEATHER:

We can’t control the weather, but are hopeful it will be a cool and slightly breezy day. If lightning is sighted, we will stop play  and resume it 20 minutes following the last strike. We do play in rain. Be sure to pack an umbrella and towel. It’s usually a good idea to keep a garbage bag in your daughters beach bag so you can keep their things dry. Parents are welcome to bring a shade and rain awning to stay dry. If necessary, we will delay as long as needed. Facility availability is limited for make-up dates so we will do our best to play the tournament.

All pool play will be one set to 21. Teams finishing 1, 2 in their pools will move to a gold tournament. Championship matches in each tournament bracket (12U Gold/Silver/Bronze, 14U Gold/Silver/Bronze, 15-18U Gold/Silver/Bronze) will be best of 3 sets to 21 and deciding set to 15.
