If you want to bring your son/daughter to Memorial Park yourself, that is fine, but please let Coach Lamore know.

This is a single elimination tournament, so if a player or double team loses on Tuesday, he/she/they are done for the tournament and may return to school. If you want your son/daughter to return to school immediately after a loss on Tuesday, please be in contact with them via cell phone, arrange to pick them up, and return them to school. Be sure to visually confirm with Coach Lamore.

If a singles player or doubles team wins 3 matches on Tuesday, they will play again on Wednesday morning. The top 4 players/teams from each division will advance to the State Tournament in Waco on 4/11-4-13.
