Based on the number of Open teams entered into previous tournaments this season, we were concerned about the possibility that an overwhelming number of teams would enter this weekend's tournament in Hermosa Beach. For this reason, we thought it would be wise to plan for a Friday qualifier through which 8 teams would secure births in the 32-team main draw beginning Saturday morning. A total of 52 Men's teams and 37 Women's teams have registered.
All teams will participate in the main draw beginning Saturday morning. We ask that you arrive on site at 8am for check-in; teams scheduled to play first can begin warming up at around 830a in preparation for first serves at 9a. We hosted 63 teams in the Men's draw for Wide Open Chicago, so we do not anticipate any challenges.
Thank you for your participation and cooperation. See you this weekend.
