CHAMPIONSHIPS FINALS WEEKEND

Weekend Times & Draws, No Social Play

Results from last weekend’s play together with the revised draws and times for this weekend’s play have been posted.

Play starts at 1130a Sat with the A grade Men’s singles and semifinal of Open Men’s Doubles.  The weather is clearing with cooler temps ideal for singles play!  Yvonne Davis is subbing for Sophie Sullivan in the Open Mixed.

A-Grade Men’s Singles had a record 16 person entry but Craig has withdrawn.  With Scottie’s help, entries have been graded into two flights with the winner/runner up of each flight going into final playoff rounds.  We will play either 3 or 4 rounds (weather dependent) of 8-games no add scoring to decide the winners of each flight. Thereafter, the playoff rounds will be one (1) tiebreaker set to decide the event winner.

Depending on the ‘finalists’, we could play the finals on Sunday since we have courts available during club time.  I’ll ask the winners their preference tomorrow. NOTE: all have to agree or posted draw stands!

Sorry but we have no courts available for anyone who wants to play SOCIAL before 4:30p.  Normal play should resume for social next weekend.

Good luck to all competitors.
