SEEDING: USTA Texas recommends the "All Factors
Method" of seeding for Ad/Sr/SS divisions and that Committees use
the Texas 12 Month Rolling Standings List for initial
considerations. If other information is to be considered (such as
head-to-head wins), emails must be sent to the Tournament Director
immediately after entry deadline.
REGISTRATION: Players must register at first match playing
site 30 minutes prior to start of match.
NO REFUNDS after the entry deadline or for inclement weather.
Effective 1-1-2018: NTRP TX Sanctioned players are required to
Self Rate, if they have no rating. If a player enters and plays
a TX Sanctioned tournament levels division with a "0.0" rating,
they will be notified that Self Ratings are now required for play
in levels divisions in Texas Sanctioned Tournaments. A player
violating this rule by playing in a levels division in a second
sanctioned tournament without a self rating will receive an
automatic 30 day suspension and any points earned from those
tournaments will be removed.
Adult / Senior / Super Senior players and teams:
USTA rules state that in a Round Robin draw, "a player
who is defaulted for any reason other than lateness shall not play
in subsequent matches and may not be declared the winner of the
round robin." [Friend at Court Reg. II.B.6.d.] Therefore, if
a player or team defaults, they will not be allowed to play the
Rounds following that defaulted match, and if subsequent matches
are played, the draw will be changed to show default(s) which will
result in win(s) for the opposing player(s) or team(s).

Excessive Overrule Guideline: The USTA Texas Officials Committee along with the Competitive Department has established a guideline in reference to excessive overrules as clarified in the Friend at Court. This guideline states "Once a player has been overruled for a second time in a match, they will be cautioned that after another overrule, they will be penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct under the point penalty system."
ATTENTION ALL SPECTATORS
(INCLUDES PARENTS, COACHES, RELATIVES, FRIENDS, ETC.)
In an effort to promote a more enjoyable and fair experience for all, the following policy is in immediate force and effect, and shall be diligently and stringently enforced. USTA Texas has implemented a “ZERO TOLERANCE” policy for improper behavior.
1. Any attempt by a spectator to speak to the official in an abusive or disrespectful manner regarding a line call or other ruling during match play shall be cause for immediate removal from the playing area and, if warranted, from the premises.
2. Any spectator behavior deemed unacceptable towards a player, other spectator or staff member shall be cause for immediate removal from the playing area or the entire premises. If said behavior is directed towards a player, either before, during or after a tournament, it shall result in an automatic and immediate suspension of that spectator’s right to attend USTA Texas tournaments, for a period of time to be determined by the USTA Texas Discipline and Grievance Committee.
3. Refusal to adhere to a removal request shall trigger immediate enforcement of the point penalty system against the player with whom the spectator is involved (per point penalty system regulations), including possible immediate default from the tournament.
4. The On-Site Official is the SOLE judge regarding unacceptable behavior.
2018 USTA Texas "No Late Entries" Policy for Juniors
Due to a new USTA Texas internal procedure, junior division players will NOT be able to register for a tournament after the online published deadline. We are aware that currently parents reach out via email or phone to the USTA Texas staff and/or tournament director requesting to be manually added to the tournament after online registration has closed. If a player misses the registration deadline, then he/she will not be permitted to participate in that tournament
Registration Confirmation: As a parent or player it is your responsibility to assure registration in the event. Regardless if you register on the website or mobile app after completing the registration you should visit the USTA web driven site and confirm your registration by finding the player in the applicants list. If you select to skip this process please be aware that should any malfunctions of the system occur, players will not be granted late entrance in the event due to a system error.
No Selection Process. All registered players will be selected.
Entry to this tournament is open to all USTA members. Entries must be submitted by Thursday, January 11, 2018 11:59:00 PM Central Time. Only USTA members can register online if available.
