If you do not play doubles or make it to singles the entry fee will be returned to you. Step 3:  After all players have checked in, we will order all the on-site alternates according to their standings on the alternate list. We will post this list on the website. Please check the USTA tournament website Friday night to determine your standing on the on-site alternate list. Step 4: Sign in at the tournament desk prior to 8 AM on Saturday, December 28. Step 5: Watch and wait. If a player no-shows for a match or a player withdraws before setting foot on the court for their first match, we then call the highest ordered on-site alternate who has signed in on time to the Tournament Desk and that player will be placed in the draw.
