Reminder for Players with a 6 PM start time

The League Coordinators receive many complaints from players that have scheduled matches at 7:30PM. The complaint is that they never get to start on time and that it is primarily due to matches with a 6P start time beginning as late as 6:30PM. Please be reminded of the regulation below and do everything in your power to get on and off the court in a timely manner.


3. Starting Match Play. All individual matches will begin (i.e., the first serve will be attempted) within fifteen minutes of the scheduled start time. All warm-ups, including service warm-ups, must be concluded prior to fifteen minutes after the scheduled start time. Exception: All players will be allowed a five-minute warm-up even if this means starting the match after the mandatory start time. Captains that exchange lineups after the posted start time / begin play later than 15 minutes, 20 after the posted start time are in violation of LCTA rules and therefore subject to grievance, which can even be filed by captains of teams who play after your matches are over. We encourage Captains to exchange lineups 5 minutes before the scheduled match time so the matches can begin.

The Credit One Charleston Open is Fast Approaching

Given this, they are looking for volunteers for the tournament along with volunteers for the ball crew.

This is a great experience and we hope that you will consider supporting this event if you are able.
