No-Show Defaults: If a player does not send written notice that
they will need to default a match, to the Tournament Director at
least one hour before the date and time of the scheduled match, the
defaulting player will receive 5 Suspension Points.
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.
Round Robin draws: a player who is defaulted for any reason other
than lateness shall not play in subsequent matches. 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, those matches will not count towards rankings.
Player Selection Type
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."
No Selection Process. All registered players will be selected.
Entry to this tournament is open to all USTA members. Entries must be submitted by Wednesday, August 12, 2020 11:59:00 PM Central Time. Only USTA members can register online if available.
