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."
ATTENTION ALL SPECTATORS
(INCLUDES PARENTS, COACHES, RELATIVES, FRIENDS, ETC.)
In an effort to promote a more enjoyable and fair experience for all, the following policy is in immediate
force and effect, and shall be diligently and stringently enforced. USTA Texas has implemented a “ZERO
TOLERANCE” policy for improper behavior.
1. Any attempt by a spectator to speak to the official in an abusive or disrespectful manner
regarding a line call or other ruling during match play shall be cause for immediate removal from
the playing area and, if warranted, from the premises.
2. Any spectator behavior deemed unacceptable towards a player, other spectator or staff member
shall be cause for immediate removal from the playing area or the entire premises. If said
behavior is directed towards a player, either before, during or after a tournament, it shall result in
an automatic and immediate suspension of that spectator’s right to attend USTA Texas
tournaments, for a period of time to be determined by the USTA Texas Discipline and Grievance
3. Refusal to adhere to a removal request shall trigger immediate enforcement of the point penalty
system against the player with whom the spectator is involved (per point penalty system
regulations), including possible immediate default from the tournament.
4. The On-Site Official is the SOLE judge regarding unacceptable behavior.
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 pro
