With the cancelation of the Montana State Junior Open Level 4, the Montana board had a call to brainstorm another potential junior tournament. There is limited inventory and our focus still remains on supporting our local providers and facilities. It was agreed upon to host the junior portion of the Billings Labor Day Tournament the weekend before and convert it to a Level 5.
Play will take place at Pioneer Park. Off 3rd and Grand. Billings, MT 59101 & The Elks Tennis Center 934 Lewis Ave.
Format: Draws with 3 or 4 players will feature Round Robbin format, Draws with 8 OR 16 players will feature compass draw format, Draws with 5-7 OR 9-15 players will feature modified full feed consolation format.
Scoring: All matches will be 2/3 tiebreak sets with a 10 point tie breaker in lieu of a third set.
