The times listed for the matches are ESTIMATES. You could play anywhere from 30 mins before to 30 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.
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 20 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 courts a minimum of 30 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
