GENERAL TOURNAMENT INFORMATION:
PLEASE READ ALL INFORMATION BELOW BEFORE REGISTERING! When you register, be sure to provide your email address and cell phone number during the registration process.

UTR Round Robin tournaments are new to the NorCal Junior Tournament Calendar. These two-day events are open to all players. Draws may be limited based on the court availability for the tournament and the total number of players accepted must be divisible by four. Players that enter will be flighted with other players with similar ability into round robins of four (4) by their Universal Tennis Ratings (UTR), regardless of age. For example, you can be a 13-year-old and be grouped with three other 17-year-olds of similar ratings in the same draw. Each player will play three singles matches using the best of 3 set with a match tie break for the 3rd format. Players in the same round robin draw will be randomly paired into doubles teams and will play one doubles match using the 8 game Pro-Set format.
UNIVERSAL TENNIS RATINGS
Every NorCal player that has competed in a USTA National or NorCal tournament that uses a yellow tennis ball in the past 12 months has a Universal Tennis Rating. This is the rating that is used to select players and group them into flights. The rating is based on a player’s most recent 30 singles match results so long as they took place in a 12-month period. Each player is assigned a level (from 1 to 16, with 16 as the highest) based on the level of their opponent and the match score. Levels are without regard to age or gender.
This tournament is open to both residents and non-residents of USTA NorCal. USTA Membership is required. Players must meet the age eligibility requirements of the division entered. Any player under 19 years old may register for this tournament (except until the month they turn 19).
Each player will receive 62 NorCal ranking points for each match win.
