PLAYER / TEAM SELECTION
SELECTIONS ARE BASED ON DOUBLES TEAMS COMBINED STANDINGS- WE STRONGLY RECOMMEND BOTH PLAYERS REGISTER FOR DOUBLES TO ENSURE THEY WONT BE MISSED AT THE TIME OF SELECTION. WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO PUT TEAMS TOGETHER OURSELVES, HOWEVER, IF AT LEAST ONE TEAM MEMBER REGISTERS BOTH PLAYERS AS A DOUBLES TEAM, THEN THEY WILL BE CONSIDERED, AS LONG AS THE OTHER PLAYER IS REGISTERED FOR SINGLES. IF BOTH PLAYERS ARE REGISTERED FOR DOUBLES IT MAKES THE SELECTION PROCESS MUCH EASIER.
This tournament is a 2 player TEAM event. We will be using the most recent NSL when selecting players. Selections will be based on the combined rankings of both players on each team. The 16 teams with the lowest ranking totals will be chosen. The alternate list will be based on individual player ranking - not the team.
MULTIPLE ENTRIES AND SELECTION PROCESS
Players may choose ONE of the following options, but NOT both: OPTION 1: ENTER any ONE (1) division of TWO (2) concurrent USTA National Level 3 Tournaments (this may be a different division in each tournament); OR OPTION 2: ENTER TWO (2) divisions of ONE (1) USTA National Level 3 tournament Players may PLAY in only ONE division of ONE tournament. Players who register for three (3) or more events will be given 5 suspension points and will only be selected into a maximum of two events.
TOURNAMENT FORMAT AND SCORING
THIS TOURNAMENT IS A TEAM EVENT. EACH DIVISION WILL HAVE 16 TEAMS - TEAMS CONSIST OF 2 PLAYERS, FOR A TOTAL OF 32 PLAYERS PER DIVISION. PLAYERS MUST REGISTER WITH A PARTNER. MATCHES AGAINST OTHER TEAMS WILL CONSIST OF 2 SINGLES AND A DOUBLES. WE WILL PLAY A COMPASS DRAW SO ALL TEAMS WILL PLAY 4 ROUNDS. BOTH SINGLES AND DOUBLES MATCHES WILL PLAY BEST OF 3 SHORT SETS WITH NO-AD SCORING. SHORTS SETS OR FAST FOUR IS A FUN NEW FORMAT USED IN AUSTRALIA THIS YEAR. A MODIFIED VERSION IS ALSO BEING USED IN COLLEGE TENNIS.
Withdrawals and Entry Fee Refunds atUSTA National Junior Tournaments
It is a player’s responsibility
to immediately take action to withdraw from the tournament should circumstances
arise which would not enable a player to compete. Good sportsmanship and the
USTA Regulations dictate that a player should never:
• enter a tournament they do not intend to finish
• withdraw from a tournament after entries close unless it is for injury,
illness, or personal circumstance
• enter two or more concurrent tournaments without prior written approval from
each Tournament Committee
WITHDRAWING FROM A TOURNAMENT:
to Entry Deadline: If entries have not yet closed, a
player may withdraw by going to the tournament’s USTA TennisLink Home Page -
the same web page that the player registered for the tournament. Once in the
system, click on the "Register Now" text in red. When taken to the
next page, click on "Withdraw" on the left hand side of the screen.
You will need your confirmation number from your original registration to
withdraw. Because your credit card will not be charged prior to the entry
deadline, no refund needs to be made. If you cannot locate your confirmation
number, contact email@example.com.
• Previously Authorized Entries into Concurrent Tournaments: If
a player has previously received written approval to enter concurrent
tournaments from each Tournament Committee, the player must immediately notify
the Tournament Director and/or Referee to let them know which tournament the player
has chosen to play.
• After Entry Deadline: Immediately
contact the tournament if to withdraw from the tournament - telephone numbers
and email addresses of the Tournament Director and/or Referee will be posted on
the tournament’s USTA TennisLink Home Page. Players must also fulfill the
written verification requirements described below if the withdrawal is for
injury, illness, or personal circumstance and the player wants to avoid being
levied USTA Suspension Points.
ENTRY FEE REFUND:
• Player is Not Accepted Into Tournament: If
a player has previously paid an entry fee and is not accepted into the
tournament, the player is entitled to a refund. Generally, in
USTA National Junior Tournaments, no player is charged an entry fee until
tournament selection is done and the acceptance list is published to the
tournament website. The TennisLink processing fee paid in addition to the
entry fee is not refundable.
• Previously Authorized Entries into Concurrent Tournaments: If
a player has previously received written authority to enter concurrent
tournaments from each Tournament Committee, the player is entitled to a refund
from the tournament(s) that will not be played. The TennisLink processing
fee paid in addition to the entry fee is not refundable.
• Other Withdrawal After the Entry Deadline: Players
who withdraw after the entry deadline for any reason other than a previously
autorized entry into concurrent tournaments are not entitled to a refund.
USTA SUSPENSION POINTS:
Any withdrawal (other than for previously authorized entry into concurrent
tournaments) that does not meet the written verification requirements described
below by the last scheduled day of the tournament (and, in the case of personal
circumstances, has also been approved as a personal circumstance by the
Referee) will result in the player being levied suspension points and any match
that is not played will be coded as a Default.
WRITTEN VERIFICATION REQUIREMENT FOR
WITHDRAWALS DUE TO INJURY, ILLNESS OR PERSONAL CIRCUMSTANCE:
• Illness or Injury: The
required written verification of an injury or illness must be from a medical
professional and must be received by the tournament no later than the last
scheduled day of the tournament.
• Personal Circumstance: If
the player is withdrawing because of a personal circumstance, the player must
deliver a written description of the situation no later than the last scheduled
day of the tournament and the Referee will determine whether the situation is a

after entries close.
player accepted into both tournaments shall be required to notify the
tournaments no later than 5 days after entries close as to which tournament
they will be playing and the player shall be refunded their entry fee (but not

other than injury, illness, or personal circumstance.

a USTA National Level 3 Tournament includes more than one age division, a
player may enter up to two age divisions of that tournament.
Tournament Committee shall select players who have entered two divisions in
descending age division order: 18; 16; 14; and 12. If a player is entered in two age divisions
of a USTA National Level 3 Tournament and is selected into the older division,
that player shall not be eligible for selection into the younger division, even
if there are openings in the draw at the time of selection or thereafter. If a
player is not selected for the older division, that player is eligible for
selection in the younger division and is eligible to be an alternate in the
younger division but not in the older division.
Selection: Players are accepted into a USTA
National Level 3 Tournament using the most recently published National
Standings List as of the date entries close.
Alternates: Alternates are ordered using the

received. Late entries received at the
