CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT IN National Level 2 Tournaments:
USTA National Level 2 Tournaments:
It is important to understand the consequences of this decision. If you want to
play in a USTA National Level 2 Tournament but are unsure if you will get in,
you may enter up to two different age divisions of up to four sites of USTA
National Level 2 Tournaments.
-When selection is done, players are selected for the oldest age division
first, based on the most recently published National Standing List of the
division of the tournament. -- If you are selected into the older age division
entered, you will not be selected into the younger age division. --- If you are
not selected into the older age division, you will only be considered for
selection into the younger division, and you will only be eligible to be an
alternate in the younger division.
Additionally, the computerized selection system attempts to fill the draws
based on the first choice of sites of all players. If spots are still open, it
looks at the second choice of sites for the remaining players, then the third
and, finally, the fourth. It is VERY IMPORTANT to only prioritize sites you are
willing to play. Those players who have not been selected after all four USTA
National Level 2 Tournament draws have been filled shall be placed on the
alternate lists at all tournaments for which the players have indicated a
preference. The players are ordered on the alternate lists based on the
player’s standing on the National Selection List used to select players.
