a) Any withdrawals before the 7-day withdrawal deadline will be issued a full refund of their entry fee, less an administration fee of $10.00.
b) Any withdrawals after the 7-day withdrawal deadline, but before the release of the draw will be issued a refund of 50% of their entry fee.

Where a doubles partner can be found to replace a withdrawing partner and the remaining partner chooses not to play, no refund shall be required to be paid. All withdrawals must be submitted by the athlete in writing. Tournaments need not issue a refund if the withdrawal procedure is not followed.
Refunds, less a $10.00 administration fee must be issued if a tournament is canceled (due to weather or other extenuating reasons) before the completion of an athlete’s first match within that tournament.
Notification of a withdrawal must be made to the tournament director via email. No player will be withdrawn from a tournament until we have received their written withdrawal.
For the purpose of issuing refunds, the date we receive your written withdrawal notification is the date you are considered to have withdrawn from the tournament, and this date will be used to calculate the amount you will be refunded.
