Concurrent Tournament Rule
A 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.
If YouNeed to Withdraw from the Tournament
Withdrawals are sometimes
necessary, and are only excused if they are for illness, injury, or emergency.
If you must withdraw after entries close, immediately contact the Tournament
Referee and/or the Tournament Director. Give your line number on the draw if
you can. Speak slowly and clearly and spell the player name if necessary. Be
sure to give a return phone number. Please include a reason so we may pass it
on to the USTA if necessary.
