SELECTION PROCESS / TWO DRAWS OF 16 FOR EACH AGE GROUP
USTA Southern will provide 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 division standings.
SIGNING UP FOR TWO DIVISIONS
Players are allowed to enter two divisions with these guidelines: #1. Players selected to both age divisions they apply for will automatically be selected to the older age division. They would be removed from the other age division. #2. Players not selected to either divisions would remain on the alternates lists for both divisions but would be obligated to play the division they first get in, from the alt. list. They would be removed from the Alternate list in the other division. #3. Players selected to one age division would 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.
