Notice to Players, Parents, Coaches, regarding the new formats for USTA North Carolina ranked tournaments:

Effective 2021, USTA National will be implementing one National tournament structure, click this link for more detailed information on this 2021 National Alignment.

In preparation for these confirmed changes in USTA tournament structure, USTA North Carolina has begun to transition with the 2020 slate of junior tournaments. Each tournament format will be posted on respective active tournament home pages, and eventually in the updated 2020 Junior Rules and Regulations to be posted following our USTA North Carolina Annual Meeting in January, 2020.

As a brief overview, USTA North Carolina ranked tournaments will now be for divisions 12U through 18U and will be using yellow ball. For 2020 only, USTA North Carolina will offer 10U Green Level 1 divisions (and 10U standings) for players that are active within the Youth Tennis Progression (YTP). USTA North Carolina points tables will continue to be utilized throughout 2020.

2020 Tournaments NC L1 (Advanced) to NC L5 (Intermediate) are intended for players that have an intermediate skill level attained through prior level-based play. It is the expectation that each participant understands the basics of tournament play and are at an intermediate level of competency in scoring, match protocol and play, as well as respect and sportsmanship toward fellow players, parents, and tournament officials. These events are not intended for beginner players or those new to match play. As a sanctioned and ranked USTA event, any violations or codes given by an official /tournament committee member may affect future tournament participation.

Please contact should you have any questions regarding this information.
