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 entry
REGISTRATION: Players must register at first match playing
site 30 minutes prior to start of match.
This was a very popular event last year and we hope to make it even
better this year with more unique awards, flexible scheduling,and
an overall player-friendly experience.
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.
No-Show Defaults: If a player does not send written notice
that they will need to default a match, to the Tournament Director
at least one hour before the date and time of the scheduled match,
the defaulting player will receive 5 Suspension Points.
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.
No Selection Process. All registered players will be selected.
Entry to this tournament is open to all USTA members. Entries must be submitted by Sunday, July 29, 2018 11:59:00 PM Central Time. Only USTA members can register online if available.
