There will be no official briefing, here you will find the most important notes:

Matches can be called until 30 minutes before the schedule.
On Sunday afternoon from about 11.30 AM and out the schedule is thight. A few players have next match the round after, but the matchcontrol will find the best solutions of breaks and priority of the matches. And there will be enough courts so just up to the players how fast they want to play.
Minimum 15 minutes break between matches.
Friday playing on 6 courts
Saturday playing on 8 courts
Sunday playing on 6 courts (more courts avaiable)
The prizes will be hand out sometime after each category is finished.
Norwegian players are registrated with their own norwegian clubs and not Norway. Unfortuantely nothing we can do about that.
