SEEDING: USTA Texas recommends the "All Factors Method" of seeding
for Ad/Sr/SS divisions and that Committees use the Texas 12 Month
Rolling Standings List for initial considerations. If other
information is to be considered (such as head-to-head wins), emails
must be sent to the Tournament Director immediately after the entry
Scoring will be 2 out of 3 sets using regular scoring with the
10 point Super Tiebreak in lieu of a 3rd set. Weather conditions
during the tournament may change this scheduled format.
Effective 1-1-2018: NTRP TX Sanctioned players are required to Self
Rate, if they have no rating. If a player enters and plays a TX
Sanctioned tournament levels division with a "0.0" rating, they
will be notified that Self Ratings are now required for play in
levels divisions in Texas Sanctioned Tournaments. A player
violating this rule by playing in a levels division in a second
sanctioned tournament without a self rating will receive an
automatic 30 day suspension and any points earned from those
tournaments will be removed.
Round Robin draws: a player who is defaulted for any reason other
than lateness shall not play in subsequent matches. If a player or
team defaults, they will not be allowed to play the Rounds
following that defaulted match, and if subsequent matches are
played, those matches will not count towards rankings.
Player Selection Type
Excessive Overrule Guideline: The USTA Texas Officials Committee along with the Competitive Department has established a guideline in reference to excessive overrules as clarified in the Friend at Court. This guideline states "Once a player has been overruled for a second time in a match, they will be cautioned that after another overrule, they will be penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct under the point penalty system."
Inappropriate umpire/spectator communication, whether it be about a ruling or any other facet of a tennis event is prohibited while a match is in progress. Being a parent, coach, etc. does not endow special privileges. With the only exception of the right to remove their own child from competition at any time, a parent or coach is merely a spectator.
The forecast shows possible rain on Friday. No changes to scheduled times will be made until late Friday afternoon if need be. Please check back on this tournament page or on Facebook at www.facebook.com/RichlandTennis.
