SCORING FORMAT -
DOUBLES - one 6 game no-ad scoring set with a 7-point
tiebreaker at 6 games all
SINGLES - best of three sets with a 10-point tie-breaker in
lieu of the third set (regular scoring)
WITHDRAWALS AND REFUNDS -
Because players are required to register for the tournament as a
team, the withdrawal of one player is effectively the withdrawal of
a team. A withdrawal of either player after the deadline closes
is considered a withdrawal of the team and both players will be
withdrawn. There will not be an opportunity to find a new partner
as the alternates list is ordered by team. Players are responsible
for notifying their partner of a withdrawal.
AFTER THE ENTRY DEADLINE:
Withdraws after entries close need to be emailed to the tournament
director at the address above. Refunds are not given for
withdrawals that happen after the entry deadline. Written
verification must be provided by a medical professional by the last
scheduled day of the tournament for a withdrawal due to illness or
injury. A written notice of the situation must be provided by the
last scheduled day of the tournament for a withdrawal due to
personal circumstance/emergency. The tournament committee will
determine whether the situation is a personal
circumstance/emergency. Failure to provide documentation will
result in Suspension Points. Again, withdrawals after the deadline
are considered a withdrawal of a team, and the Southwest Section
will look to the alternates list to fill the vacancy.

Video Taping Policy in Central Arizona
The recent increased usage of and improvements in technology have
afforded tennis players many advantages. One advantage is instant
feedback via video analysis of match play. While many chose to use
this tool during their personal practice, it has become a commonly
used tool for recording match play during a tournament. Given the
benefits and potential hazards of videotaping and social network
postings, the USTA Central Arizona District has adopted the
following policy and procedures to ensure the goodwill (atmosphere
of fairness and good sportsmanship) and protection of the player
population for junior tournament play.
No videotaping of both players during match play at a USTA Central
Arizona sponsored event, (regardless of location or facility), will
be permitted without mutual consent in writing. (Form to be
provided by the USTA.) Cameras are allowed to be hung from the
fence (before the match has started) and or set up outside the
court. No cameras are to be placed anywhere on the court or inside
the fence surrounding the court. Please note that this does not
apply to parents or coaches videotaping their own children or
players exclusively. It only applies to those who are interested in
videotaping match play which includes both players.
In order to videotape match play (both players) during a USTA
Central Arizona sponsored event, all parties must be in mutual
consent of the filming process and sign a consent form stating that
the video tape will be used for personal viewing only and will not
be posted to any social networks for universal access. The consent
forms should be made available by the tournament directors. The
party filming must fill out the consent form and obtain the
signatures of the parents of their opponents. The form must be
submitted to the tournament director no later than the time the
player is to check in for their match. All forms must be submitted
to the Central AZ Office by the tournament director to be kept on
file for one year. Noncompliance with this policy will be
considered unsportsmanlike conduct and is subject to the Point
Players are selected manually by the tournament director after the close of registration.
