Gator Bowl - A Tennis Recruiting Network National
What does it mean to
be a Tennis Recruiting Network National Event? Matches won in this
tournament will count toward your Tennis Recruiting ranking. At a low to mid
level sectional event the matches usually do not have bearing on your Tennis
Recruiting ranking. There is a formula to where 25% of the draw must be what
Tennis Recruitng classifies as a "National Player" in order for the
matches at the event to count towad your Tennis Recruiting ranking. Hence, it takes
a mid or high level sectional event to have bearing on Tennis Recruiting
rankings. Since the Gator Bowl is named a Tennis Recruiting National Showcase
event, all matches at the Gator Bowl will count toward Tennis Recruiting
