Automatic Entry into CONSOLATION Draw!
We are offering automatic feed into the CONSOLATION draw for First Match Losers. We will not give any avoidances for consolation matches. Consolation draw is for first match losers only. If you have a bye and lose your second round, you can play consolation. If you win your first round and lose your second round you can not play consolation. Scoring format will be regular scoring as the rest of the tournament. Larger consolation draws may not finish.
Avoidances: This is a three day tournament, for that reason, avoidances will not be accepted. This applies to consolations draws as well. It is likely that multiple rounds will have to be scheduled per event. Depending on draw size, this could result in playing 3-4 matches per day if playing two events.
Scoring: All matches will play two out of three tie-break sets with a 10 point match tiebreak being played in lieu of a third set.
