Jan. 10-14: This new tournament is doubles-only and designated as a CAT III (300 National points). Play begins Wednesday, the 10th and teams will play two matches per day depending on draw size. Tournament is scheduled to last three days unless rain. Example: in full 16 draw teams play two round robin matches first day, one round robin and one semi’s the second day, and finals on the third day.
Jan. 22-28: According to Larry Turville, “The Super Cat II is offering a 10% discount if you enter before Jan 1st. There is a little trick: you have to click on ‘more information’ under the discount message and then it takes you to another home page. Then use THAT home page to enter and should save you money! The Super Cat II has a new host site this year at Sanchez Casals and should eliminate the need to travel to other sites to play. As the circuit chair of the event for the USTA I will try to make sure it is well run and enjoyable with as few hiccups as possible.”
