Playing waves - We will primarily be using pool configurations that have the four teams in the pool playing 3 straight matches and being finished for the day. There will be a limited number of 4 team and 3 team pools. If there are last minute changes to the schedule, the four team pools (on 1 court or 2) may simply be switched to 3 team pools playing 3 sets to 25.

Wave start times on Saturday will be 7:15 am, 11:00 am, 2:45 pm and 6:30 pm. This is the only format that will allow us to minimize the number of people and increase the spacing necessary. When planning your arrival time, please note that players will be allowed into the facility 45 minutes prior to the start of their wave time and spectators (1 per participant) will be allowed into the facility 30 minutes prior to their wave time. The same applies for arrival on Sunday; players can arrive 45 minutes and spectators 30 minutes prior to their first match.  Please do not arrive earlier than this timeframe as we need to allow adequate time for previous wave players to leave the building and to allow for parking.

Work teams - With the four teams on two courts, each team will be required to provide two parents for each match, one to work the table and one to line judge. This also allows us to minimize the number of people in the venues at any given time and potentially shortens the day for each team.
