IMPORTANT JUNIOR SUSPENSION NOTES
Please note the rules below pertain to ALL sanctioned North Carolina and Southern tournaments:
"A player shall not enter two tournaments at the same time. When
entries close, a player shall not be entered in two or more sanctioned
tournaments, if any part of the tournament is scheduled to overlap
unless each Tournament Committee involved understands the situation and
concurs in writing."
12. "Player shall not enter a tournament intending to withdraw if the player's entry is accepted in another tournament."
What if played on an Alternate List? There are two options:
1.) Stay on the Alternate Lists in hope of getting into the tournament.
2.) Withdraw from the Alternate Lists so you can legally enter another tournament.
IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING SOUTHERN LEVEL 3 TOURNAMENTS
Limited Draws - All divisions are limited to 32 players each.
USTA Southern will provide the selection list.
Players will be selected directly from the USTA Southern Standing list
in the age division in which they apply. Players will no longer be considered for selection based on their lower age group.
Each group of 32 players selected from each age group will be divided
into two draws of 16 each. We will be using a waterfall system to make
sure each of the two draws are balanced by strength. A change to this
process is that prior to splitting players using the waterfall system,
the players selected from the younger age group will be placed in their
proper position based on strength. The 32 players were split as follows:
Red 1,4,5,8,9,12,13,16,17,20,21,24,25,28,29,32. Blue
Independent Draws - 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.
Guidelines For Entry - Players are allowed to enter two age divisions in Southern L3 tournaments, within these guidelines:
1.) Players selected to both age divisions they apply for will
automatically be selected in the older age division. They will be
removed from the other age division.
2.) Players not selected to either division will remain on the
alternates lists for both divisions but would be obligated to play the
division they first get in from the alternates list. They will be
removed from the alternates list in the other division.
3.) Players selected to one age division will be removed from the alternates list of the division they were not selected.
4.) Once a player is selected for any one division no changes can be made.
- Players from the lower age group that were selected and meet the
seeding criteria will be seeded according to the STA directions.
Alternates - The Alternates by Event report will be updated daily. Contact us immediately if you realize that you cannot participate.
is the Alternate's responsibility to check the website to see if your
