FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHEN DO I PLAY? WHAT IF IT RAINS?

Schedules will be emailed to the registrant’s email address and posted on this website by the WEDNESDAY prior to the tournament.  We appreciate your patience as the final teams’ register and divisions are set.  We always do our best to have schedules out to each team’s primary contact on the Wednesday prior to the tournament.

All games are PLANNED for Saturday.  Sunday exists as an inclement weather date.

IF IT RAINS WE PLAY, unless it becomes unsafe or if there is Hazardous Weather in the area.  After many years of this, we always seem to get a bit of rain, we play as long as we can, if need be we wipe up the courts, reline and we get right back to the games.

We do except women’s teams and players, we have had many females play over the years, but we only once have had enough to make an all-female division, so typically we end up giving teams the choice to blend in with others teams or not participate. This happens nearly every year to one or two teams, those female teams have always decided to play and have always been happy they decided to stay and play!

 

HOW MANY PLAYERS ARE ON A TEAM?

Teams must have a minimum of 4 players, maximum of 6 on check in roster.

HOW DO I DETERMINE PLAYER'S GRADE OR AGE DIVISION?

Player’s grade will be the one he or she will be in the fall of 2020. 

In the case of homeschool players, please refer to the guidelines of your local public school.

MY TEAM CONSISTS OF PLAYERS IN MULTIPLE GRADES. WHAT DIVISION WILL WE PLAY IN?

Your team will be placed in the division of your oldest players grade up to the adult divisions,  In the adult divisions you play in the division of your youngest player.  No player may participate in a division which is below his or her grade or age cutoff.  In the youth divisions, younger players may play in older divisions to accommodate older players on the roster.

HOW MANY GAMES WILL MY TEAM PLAY?

It ultimately depends on your team’s win-loss record and the size of your bracket, but we do our very best for all teams participating in M3B to get 3 games but this isn’t always possible.  Final schedules are up to the management of the tournament and can change due to factors out of our control, like lack of teams, weather or issues out of our control the day of the event. Due to poor behavior, teams can forfeit games or be totally removed from the tournament, thus games played could be reduced for all teams in the affected division.

WHAT WILL I NEED TO BRING WITH ME TO REGISTRATION AT THE TOURNAMENT?
  • Please bring a proof of age for your players.  This can include report cards or school IDs, among many other forms of identification.
  • Every player MUST have a signed waiver to enter the court.  Download the waiver here and bring it with you.  We will also have printed copies available to sign at the check in table.
  • Remaining balance for your team is due at the time of check-in in the form of cash or check.  Please contact us if you have a question about your remaining balance.
WHEN SHOULD I ARRIVE? WHAT IF IT IS RAINING?

Please plan to arrive at least one-half hour before your team’s first game to complete the check-in process.  CHECK-IN WILL BE BY COURT E ON THE TENNIS COURT UP THE HILL.  After the event gets going at about 10 AM it can take 30 minutes or more to park and get to the courts, so plan ahead.  There will be lots to do for everyone from adults to small kids at Milford Memories, so enough your breaks in the schedule.

If it rains we play, unless it becomes unsafe or if there is Hazardous Weather in the area, all teams are expected to show up at your scheduled time and check in. Tournament leaders will let your team know if schedules change, so make sure we have a TEXT/PHONE NUMBER THAT WILL BE MONITORED so we can communicate with your team.  After many years of this, we always seem to get a bit of rain, we play as long as we can, but at times we need to get standing water off the courts, reline and then we get right back to playing.

WHERE DO I PARK?

You can find more information from the Milford Memories festival webpage, here.  After the event gets going at about 10 AM it can take up to and more than 30 minutes to park and get to the courts, so plan ahead.  Lots to do for adults and small kids alike at Milford Memories.
