COLLEGE FORMAT: All matches will be played using US college tennis rules: NO ADD, NO LETS on serve and COACHING during the changeover.
USP COLLEGE TENNIS RECRUITING PROFILE: All participants will be given access to the USP Online Dashboard with valuable information on College Tennis Recruiting, USP College Tour and Showcase events and an assessment by a certified college placement agent.
As previously noted, matches will be in Full Level-Based Divisions to provide better developmental opportunity and better opportunity to positively impact one’s UTR.
All Players (regardless of Level, Age or Gender) should register for the Singles Division. Matches will be set up at the close of registration based on Player UTR’s.
With UTR Events there is no need to shop for tournaments, strong draw, weak draw, points per round considerations, etc. There is no rationale in waiting to sign up and find out who else may decide to play. Your placement in a level-based draw will be based on your UTR. You will get a set number of matches in a draw that will increase the likelihood that you have matches both good for your development and good for your opportunity to improve your UTR. In the event that there are not enough players within a near enough UTR range for this to be possible, then the Tournament Director will not place you in a draw that isn’t good for you. Your fees will be refunded. If everyone is waiting on the sideline to see who else enters then nobody ends up entering. This is a new mindset. If you want to play then register with confidence and without regard for who else is playing. Again, the Tournament Director will not allow players to be placed in draws that are not beneficial for the player.
Players will receive Universal Tennis Rating (UTR) credit for all matches played.
Player UTRs will be used when selecting players for the Tournament and/or Division/Draw.
Seeding is based on player UTRs.
Player UTRs are available at universaltennis.com.
A UTR subscription is required to search and view player ratings on the UTR system, with pricing starting at forever free for UTR Basic. The UTR Premium Plus allows subscribers access to search and view college team profiles.
