Info and Itinerary
Draws and Schedule - The draws and schedule have been posted. As always things could change, but if anything does change with your draw you will be notified by text message.
Draws -Everyone will play two Waterfall matches on Thursday. Both of these matches will be 8 game pro sets no-ad. After both Waterfall all teams will be placed in brackets based on their Thursday match results. All teams will play one match on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. All matches on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday are regular scoring with a 10 point tiebreaker for the 3rd set. We will have an optional signup sheet for those that would like to play in the afternoon as well.
The times listed for the matches are ESTIMATES. You could play anywhere from 15 mins before to 15 mins after the listed time. We really try to stay right on time if not early with all of our draws, but sometimes mother nature, or long matches affect that. So with that, all players must arrive (and ready to play) a minimum of 20 minutes before their listed start time.
After the first match, all players should go directly to their court assigned on the draw sheets. If your designated court or another court is available and we are within the 15 minutes of your estimated match time and you or your partner are not present we will start the default clock of 15 mins.
Arrive the tournament desk a minimum of 15 minutes early for your first match on Friday. Come to the check in desk for you players bag and picture. It is the player’s responsibility to keep track of their match times. We will be happy to assist, but whatever is posted on the RacquetWar.com website are the official times.
Practice-Warm Up Courts will very rarely be available.
Limit your warm up time to 5 mins. Keep your Change over times to 3 mins max. Play tennis… chit chat after the matches

Local players…we don’t want to leave you out! We understand it might be tough to pay for an event like ours playing on courts you frequent or call home. We also understand the value of having local players at our events and how much more successful we can be with you. If you are local, shoot us an email and let us know. We will send you a promotional code to save you some money. We look forward to sharing our passion with you.
What is included with the standard Racquet War entry?
Add-on options for the standard Racquet War entry
Rain & Defaults
One unavoidable thing in all events, especially some of our larger tournaments are defaults. We try as hard as possible to prevent these but people get hurt or things happen out of their control and certainly ours. We always do our best to backfill missing teams, but it is obviously a difficult task on such short notice. If you are one of the unfortunate players to get a default (it will happen), just know we are disappointed as well.
The Racquet War experience, besides the competitive tennis, is a fun weekend with friends filled with exciting events, lots of laughs, and a memorable time overall.
