DEFAULT TIME IS 10 MINUTES AFTER THE START TIME (when a court is available). Warm-up is limited to 10 minutes. You may play in this event and the Mixed Doubles tournament, but if you make it to the final day of the Mixed Doubles, be prepared to play a lot of tennis.

COVID POLICY: If you are not feeling well, please withdraw from the event. If you are a spectator and not feeling well, please stay home. There will be no handshakes at the conclusion of matches, instead we will use the racket tap.
