LIMITED DRAWS AND SELECTION PROCESS
All divisions are limited to 32 players each.
Because this is a Southern Level 3 event, the following Selection Process is being used:
Top 32 players applying from the latest USTA Southern Standings list.
Boys and Girls 12s-18s divisions: 28 players from this age group will be selected and up to 4 players from the younger age group who are eligible from the younger age group, who have a standing in the top 40 of the younger age group, and are not in the selected 28, will be selected.
(The names of the players who have been selected will appear as competitors. Alternates are listed in the report section.)
WATERFALL SYSTEM FOR SPLITTING COMPETITORS
The players will be ordered using the most current Southern standings (rel. March 5), with players from the younger age group that met the seeding requirements included in the player list.
The 32 players will be split as follows:
GREEN DRAW: 1,4,5,8,9,12,13,16,17,20,21,24,25,28,29,32
WHITE DRAW: 2,3,6,7,10,11,14,15,18,19,22,23,26,27,30,31
Seeding will be made after the players have been split.
Players from the lower age group that were selected and meet the seeding criteria will be seeded according to the STA directions.
There will be an Independent Consolation Draw for players who lose in the First Round of the Consolation, and they will play one more round unless there is a bye.
