For the July SCMZs, 12s through 18s Super Champ players can choose which
tournament they would like to compete in. The points awarded for each
draw will be the same in both the Bay Area and San Antonio tournaments.
New Withdrawal Penalty for Super Champ Level Tournaments
There will be no penalty for withdrawing from singles or doubles prior
to Wednesday, July 18th at 12 Noon for Super Champ Level or Major Zone
events. After that time, if a player withdraws from singles and/or
doubles, they will be penalized 2 suspension points for the withdrawal.
This includes any withdrawals, walkovers, and retirements after Wednesday, July 18th at Noon until the end of the tournament. The maximum
penalty is 2 points per tournament. You will not be penalized twice for
singles and doubles withdrawals. If a player does reach the suspension
threshold, they will be able to appeal any points at that time.
Doubles Process and Tournament Timeline
For doubles, if one player in a team withdraws, the partner will have
until Wednesday, July 18th at 12 Noon to find a new partner. After
Wednesday at Noon, if the remaining player is left unpaired, they will
be removed from the draw. After the Noon deadline, teams will be
re-seeded into draws based on the updated combined UTR Ratings of the
final teams. Any withdrawal made after Wednesday at Noon results in the
entire team being withdrawn. The Wednesday 12 Noon deadline gives the TD
time to adjust both singles and doubles draws prior to the Thursday
6:00 PM draw posting.
Texas Tier 4 SCMZ Seeding and Selection on UTR (April, July, August, and December)
All seeding and selection will be based on Universal Tennis Rating (UTR)
for the 2018 April, July, August and December Texas Tier 4 Super Champ
Major Zones (SCMZ). Doubles seeding and selection will be generated
based on the pairings combined singles UTR with ties being broken with
the team with the highest individual's UTR getting the higher spot. For
more information regarding UTR please click "more info."
Players may register with or without a partner. Those who register with a
partner must indicate their partner through the online registration
system before the entry deadline. Players will need to correctly
identify their doubles partner during their initial registration process
or they may go back later, prior to the entry deadline, and “Edit
Registration” to indicate their partner of choice. Correct doubles
registration is the player’s responsibility. Immediately after
registration, players need to check the Applicant List to ensure they
are registered with their partner of choice (and their partner is also
registered with them). Remaining individual players will be paired up
based on the order of their Singles UTRs. There will be a 24 hour
doubles pairing period after the deadline for players to correct any
errors in their doubles registration.
If you choose to register
for doubles individually then the tournament director will share your
email address with your assigned doubles partner. This allows for open
communication between partners for warm-up, withdrawals, etc.

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.
Inappropriate umpire/spectator communication, whether it be about a ruling or any other facet of a tennis event is prohibited while a match is in progress. Being a parent, coach, etc. does not endow special privileges. With the only exception of the right to remove their own child from competition at any time, a parent or coach is merely a spectator.
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.
