SOUTHEAST MICHIGAN DOES NOT ALLOW JUNIOR TOURNAMENT ENTRIES
AFTER THE TENNISLINK DEADLINE. All competitors (phone in, mail in and tennislink) MUST show up on TennisLink at the time of deadline. If you are aware of a Southeast Michigan Tournament adding players after the TennisLink deadline, please notify the District Office immediately (email: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-734-421-1025). Exceptions to this rule are Novice Tournaments or any division with three (3) or less entrants after deadline.
Youth Progression for the 10 & Under Player: _The USTA/Midwest Section has introduced an Youth Progression for tournament players under the age of 11.
This is being done to ensure that players are using the appropriate ball, racquet, and court size for their level of play. Within this system, players will have the opportunity to experience appropriate levels of competition at each stage of the USTA/Midwest Junior Tennis Pathway. The rules and regulations put in place will allow players to progress through the different stages at a pace most suitable to the player based on his or her competency, age, participation in competitive play, and results in competition.
Stages of Youth Progression
Red Ball Tennis to Orange Ball Tennis
Orange Ball Tennis to Green Ball Tennis
Green Ball Tennis to Yellow Ball Tennis
Youth Progression Tournaments will be clearly marked on TennisLink. See TennisLink at www.usta.com for a complete list of Tournaments, including Youth Progression events.
