Dominant Duo Competitors,

 
Just a friendly reminder that if you (and/or your doubles partner) were selected in more than one event, you must let one of the tournaments know that you are not competing in their event.  As of Tuesday, August 27th, you should only be on one competitor list in one age group.
 
Thank you,

Players and Parents,

Congratulations on making it into the Dominant Duo.  If you haven't played this format before, you are in for a treat.  This seems to be a very popular event and one that sections across the country are starting to adopt.  
 
In the next few days we will be sending a series of emails that will help answer some possible questions you might have.
 
While you are more than happy to call us with questions, we ask that you email us first.  We like to have a paper trail of our past conversation, plus you have a better chance in getting a quicker response through email as both my wife and I check our email account throughout the day.  We do have some emails that we will start going through, but haven't been able to answer them until the selection process have been completed.  Look for responses to those today and tomorrow.
 
Take care and keep a look out for future emails.
