Thanks to the players who mentioned a couple of errors in the email sent yesterday about the tournament upcoming this weekend in Long Beach:
- All entries fees will be $60/team, not $100 for open teams as was wrongly written
- The tournament is in Long Beach, NY and not S Carolina.
Hope to see all doubles players on the beach this weekend.
