If you are not endorsed by your Section and/or have other issues that keep you from being selected into the event, you may apply for a Wild Card entry. Up to 8 Wild Cards may be granted for the Nationals in the 16s and there are up to 8 Wild Cards in the 18s.
All applicants must be eligible to enter a USTA National Championship, be in good standing with their Sectional Association, and may not be under suspension by the USTA. Wild card consideration is given to players who were unable to meet their section’s requirements for endorsement to USTA National Championships . Applicants are not required to submit timely entries into the tournament to be considered for a wild card. Applications MUST be filed separately for each National Championship and submitted online no later than 5:00 pm Eastern Time five (5) days after the entry deadline for the tournament for which the Wild Card is sought.
Early application is strongly encouraged. THE TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR DOES NOT HAVE THE APPLICATIONS. Once the application deadline has passed, the USTA will confirm that the applicant is in good standing with her Sectional Association. Shortly thereafter, the Wild Card Committee will meet to determine the wild card recipients. Only those players selected to receive wild cards will be notified.
Option to Enter Up to Two USTA National Championships
The USTA Regulations allow a player to enter more than one age division of a USTA National Championship. If you want to play in the Nationals in San Diego, but aren’t sure if you will get in, you may enter up to two age divisions. When tournament selection is done, players will be selected for the 18s USTA National Championship first. If you are selected for the 18s Nationals, you will not be considered for the 16s.If you are not selected for the 18s, you will be considered for the 16s division. This is an important thing to consider before entering. If you enter two divisions and are not accepted into the older division, you can only be considered for main draw and alternate status in the younger division. Although you can enter two divisions, you cannot play in two divisions in the Nationals. You will be selected for one division only, and if you plan to enter doubles, you must play in the age division of your singles entry with an eligible partner. In other words, you cannot play singles in the Girls' 16s and doubles in the 18s.
No entry fee is charged if a player withdraws before entries close. By USTA rule, no refund is guaranteed after entries close.
This event is restricted to the following Jr. players: U.S. Citizens;
Permanent Resident Aliens; Diplomats, Refugees/Asylees; CTA. Refer to
