Clarify, please: Accommodations for players, even in the Qualis', or, like ATP tourneys, Main Draw accoms', only?
Is this event sanctioned? USTA? ITF? Points?
I'll tell a buddy of mine, too. He has a few ATP points and would probably like to come, as we've been talking more about traveling together to ITF events.
Thanks for posting this.
Unfortunately we can't afford to pay for hotels for players in the qualifying tournament, but we'll get a good tournament rate and it will be off season here so hotels will be very reasonable anyway.
We'll be sanctioned by Tennis BC, but that's probably not of much importance to the players. The hoops you have to jump through to put together even an ITF Futures event is considerable so we have no plans to do that. Those tournaments have their place, and we're not competing with them - this is strictly a money tournament.
I hope you can make it. The deadline for the quallies will be the weekend before the event begins. We'll be able to accommodate a lot of players so I doubt we'll have to turn anyone away.
