Live Schedule & Results

Tournament Finishing Times

For teams who must fly to our event, we ask that your return trip not be scheduled before 7:00 pm on Sunday (6:30pm for the January event).  Final matches of the day may not begin until as late as 3:00 pm.  Championship matches generally begin at 1:00 pm or 2:00 pm.  Due to the high level of competition and the closeness in ability of teams playing on day 3, the play day can last until 4:30 pm – 5:00 pm (1-2 hours behind) for some courts by the end of the day.  Teams with flights 6:00 pm or earlier may risk forfeiting matches.  Teams are also still responsible for their officiating assignments before leaving.

Please note that ultimately the decision is yours when you choose to travel.  We cannot be responsible for advising you which flights to take.
