Juniors Beach Doubles League 2016
Beach League Tournament – Monday, July 25 – 15u & older
Monday’s league tournament will be modified double elimination for all 3 age groups. Matches will start at 4:00 and the following teams will need to be ready to play the first round of matches (please arrive by 3:45 in order to be warmed up and ready to play at 4:00)
All other teams need to be prepared to play at 4:30, as we will move along in the brackets as soon as matches finish. If you cannot be there and have not emailed Melissa, please do so ASAP.
When you and your partner arrive at the park, please check in so we know you are there! Then stay close enough to the tournament directors chairs so you will be able to hear your names called.
For league tournament, matches are best 2 of 3…so they only play a 3rd set if they split the first two. Upon completion of the match, report the results to the tournament director and wait for your names to be called for your next match. We will keep things moving as quickly as possible. Please come prepared to be at the park all evening, so bring plenty of water and snacks!
Wednesday’s start times will be posted soon.
