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."

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
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.
