Designated Open Sectional Championship
In light of the global COVID-19 pandemic, the USTA family would like to encourage local play as opposed to traveling to play national tournaments. With this in mind, we’ve reclassified the remaining Super Category 2, Category 2, and Category 3 National Tournaments as Designated Open Sectional Championships.
These Designated Open Sectional Championships will have National Category 2 point allocation for the players. The participants will have the opportunity to earn national points while playing at the sectional level.
At this time, the remaining Category 1 Tournaments will continue to be rescheduled for later in the year.
If you have any questions or for more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
