  • Prize-giving will be at PCC on Sunday, hopefully around 14h00. Recipients of prizes in the younger age-groups will have to go to the prize-giving at PCC to receive their prizes
  • I have tried my best to accommodate playing problems.  Remember that when you enter for a tournament you must be available for the duration thereof.  Please try your best to play all your matches.
  • You have to be at the courts at least 30 minutes before your scheduled time.
  •  I cannot reschedule any matches now as all times have now been posted so please do not send in any more requests.
  •  If you are playing in the 2nd round at the beginning of each day, you have to mark and referee for the 1st round as well as after your own match!
  • You cannot change playing times unless cleared with the tournament organiser, your AGR or the tournament referee and it is acceptable to the opponent.
  • No matches are to be played at another venue than at the ones stipulated!
  • NB no-shows and players withdrawing without doctor’s notes will be penalised by NJSA in the form of a tournament ban or possible exclusion from future teams.  It is disrespectful towards your opponent and the organisers.
  • Balls: under 11 and 13 – double yellow dot, under 14 – 19 – green dot.

Enjoy the tournament and please take a few minutes to read the attached ‘Tournament Etiquette’ document!
