All NTRP Players Must Have an NTRP Rating
All players participating in a USTA NorCal sanctioned NTRP tournament must have an NTRP rating. If you do not have an NTRP rating, please click "more info" to obtain a self-rating.
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.

The general plan is to start the singles on the first weekend, with
the final rounds on the second weekend. Some mixed doubles matches
may be played on the first weekend, but the majority will be played
on the second weekend. However, until we actually make all the
draws, we cannot tell how the schedule of matches will shake out.
No accommodations will be made for league matches.
Players may enter at most 1 singles and 1 mixed doubles. No men's
doubles or women's doubles is offered in this event -- they will be
offered in our November tournament.

Draws may be limited, depending on the total number of entrants in
the entire tournament. According to USTA NorCal regulations, entry
is NOT on a FIRST COME - FIRST SERVED basis. If needed,
teams/players will randomly be pulled out of the largest draws and
placed on the alternate list. (Although this has happened, it is
rare. Usually, all eligible entrants are selected.) If you are not
selected, your entry fee will either not be charged to your credit
card or refunded by check a few weeks after the tournament is
This tournament uses the "Player Selection Process." After
submitting on online entry, the person's name is put on the
Applicant list. After the tournament processes the entries, which
might include drawing names out of the hat to pare down the list to
a manageable number of players, then the applicants who are
officially entered will receive a confirmation email and their
credit card will be charged for the fees. (In most years, all
eligible applicants have been selected.)

deadline, it can be done online at the entry website. If a player
