*** Concurrent Tournament Rule ***
player shall not be entered at the time entries close in two or more USTA
sanctioned tournaments scheduled to take place at the same time, in whole or in
part, unless each Tournament Committee involved understands the situation,
concurs in writing, and each agrees to accommodate the player’s schedule. The
final decision rests with each tournament committee. If one tournament agrees
to accept concurrent entries and accommodate the player's schedule but the
concurrent tournament does not, the player may not enter both. If entries for
the overlapping tournaments close on different dates, approval must be received
from all Tournament Committees no later than the entry closing date that occurs
last. Players who enter a tournament and play it to completion, may then enter
another tournament with overlapping dates without permission. If a player
violates this concurrent tournament rule ranking points earned in any
concurrent tournament played will not count toward ranking or the Grand Prix
Points Race and the concurrent tournaments will not count toward the minimum
tournament requirement to qualify for Grand Prix.
