*We are requiring players to play in the same age group that they are playing in singles.
*We offer a random pairing list for players who do not have partners. PLEASE , PLEASE do not ask to be on that list unless you are committed to a randomly drawn partner. To get on this list please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*We will attempt to forward doubles request for partners. We do not promise we will have time to do that.
This is an Alabama Level 2 event and a Southern Level 3 event.
Draw size limits are 32 in B/G 10-18. Players will be selected
based on STA guidelines for STA level 3 events.
Youth Progression for 10 and under Events:
All Players ages 10 and under must play thru the new Youth Progression System. Starting with 2017 Tournaments players will only be allowed to enter tournaments at their approved level or one level below. No playing up will be allowed. In general players will find the progression from Orange 2(entry Level, will count as a level 5) to Orange 1(intermediate Level will count as a level 4) the quickest, then from Orange 1 to Green Level 10's(Advanced will count as at least a level 3) slightly more difficult, then from Green Level 10's to Yellow Ball play in 12's more difficult. Once a player ages up to 11 they will be eligible for Yellow Ball Play automatically. We hope the New Progression Pathway will help all players find their natural pathway.
Players are selected manually by the tournament director after the close of registration.
Entry to this tournament is restricted. Please consult your Section or District rules and regulations for entry requirements for this tournament.
