About Spooky Match Play Day
One Day UTR Match Play at the Adams Tennis Complex/Murfreesboro
Skill level: All
*players must be able to serve, keep score, and manage a match independently, without help.
Registered players will be divided into groups of 5-6 players based on their UTR rating. All players will be within 1.0 point of the other players in the group. Our goal, however, is to have the players in tighter groups (less than .5 points apart) when possible. While it may not be possible, based on the pool of registered players, every attempt will be made to keep players with a UTR 3.49 or below in groups with players of the same gender. Groups of players 3.5+ will most likely be mixed-gender.
Players will be given a schedule of matches for the day - you'll know which group you're assigned and what time your matches will be played by Friday, 10/27. Expect to be at the courts all day (8:00AM-5:00PM) with new matches being put on court every 45 minutes. Due to the format of this event, accommodations cannot be made for players with other obligations during this time period. Thank you for understanding.
Entry Fee: $29.43
**$4.43 UTR fee to be paid online at time of registration - the remaining $25 to be paid in person at the ATC by Tuesday, October 24th 9:00PM.

Players will receive a t-shirt for this event! T-shirt size is asked upon registering - all sizes assumed adult unless you put a "Y" in front of the size for a youth size (YS, YM, YL). Players registered by 10/13 will be guaranteed their t-shirt size. All registrations after will choose from available sizes.
Minimum number of matches for each player in this tournament: 1-5
**If weather is an issue, the alternative day will be Saturday, November 11th. If we are not able to play either date, a refund will be provided. Once the first matches are played on either date, however, no refunds will be given.**
If we do not have enough players to create a competitive round robin, we will refund your money. We are mostly concerned with UTRs at 7+. Players of that level, please help us fill a 4-6 player group by spreading the word!
Players must be able to manage a match completely on their own - no parental assistance or coaching will be allowed while play is going on.
Maximum number of players for this Event: 96
Match, set and game scoring format: Round Robin, 7-game/no-ad matches vs. 1-5 opponents within a close radius of your UTR
We expect this event to fill up, so register early and drop off your fee/waiver at the ATC by the deadline to secure your spot. Spots not paid on the morning of 10/25 will be offered to players on the wait list.
Players will receive Universal Tennis Rating (UTR) credit for all matches played.
Player UTRs are available at universaltennis.com. Don't have a UTR just yet? No problem! We will do our best to put your player in a group of similar skills. We may need to ask you a few questions about your player's experience in order to get it right.
A UTR subscription is required to search and view player ratings on the UTR system, with pricing starting at forever free for UTR Basic. The UTR Premium Plus allows subscribers access to search and view college team profiles.
