  2. A player can participate in singles play and on one doubles team.
  3. Doubles teams must have both members on the roster on by the registration deadline in order to complete registration.

All participants are expected to know the rules, which can be found by clicking the "Rules" link at the top of this page. If a disagreement occurs regarding a point, game or any other play, the players must mutually agree on a ruling in the game or play the point over immediately.
  5. Before the start of the tournament, each player must present a valid UI or government-issued photo ID to participate.
