It's early in the state tennis tournament, but we are already receiving calls about coaches wanting to schedule their match on the last day of a play "window." Please keep in mind that we have set play “windows” for each round that include at least three (3) potential playing dates before the end of the window. The final day is meant to be a rain date.
Do NOT wait until the last day of a “window” to schedule your match and then ask for an extension if you are rained out on that last day. You risk BOTH teams being forfeited out of the tournament if you do so!
Try to play early during the play window. Remember that the date and time must be by MUTUAL agreement. If you can not come to a mutual agreement, then call the GHSA office and we will set the date and time for you. It will NOT BE ON THE FINAL DAY of a play window, that’s guaranteed!
Also remember that the restriction on playing during the school day is waived for state playoff competiton. You can schedule these playoff matches at any time during the day. You do not have to wait until school lets out.
Good luck and here’s hoping the weather will cooperate and make this notice unnecessary! Please report your results promptly so that we can keep the brackets on the GHSA web site up to date. You can e-mail results to Tennis Coordinator Steve Figueroa at firstname.lastname@example.org or fax them to the office at 706-647-2638.
