A note on 40 & 55 Playoffs–USTA Ft Worth playoffs will be un-officiated. Guidelines will be set in place and communicated to all the captains to assist teams/players in getting through the matches. Warm up courts are available when teams were assigned to a court, this is in effort to give teams an “equal” warm up, if you are assigned to a court, you are allowed to warm up on those courts only. We hope everyone will agree in an effort to be fair to “all” the assigning of courts is in the best interest of fair play to all. Assistants are allowed from each of the teams or a neutral party may assist with line calls and score keeping. We greatly appreciate teams working through the matches, utilizing the assistance available, and working with us on court assignments.
