About ITA Summer Circuit powered by UTR
The ITA Summer Circuit was created to provide college players the opportunity to compete in organized events virtually year-round. Although the primary purpose of the circuit is to provide incoming freshman and collegiate players the chance to compete in the summer months, for NCAA compliance purposes, the events are categorized as “open”; therefore, anyone (including high level juniors and adults) is eligible to compete in these events as long as he/she is a current ITA member. The ITA Summer Circuit is currently made up of 52 events over six consecutive weekends, beginning the last weekend in June and continuing through the last weekend in July.

Refund Policy: A full refund of $60 will be issued directly back to the credit card used to pay for the entry for players that withdraw from a Summer Circuit event up to 10 days prior to the start of the event.

Singles Waiting List: Potential registrants are encouraged to email the tournament director requesting to be placed on a waiting list. Alternates may be moved into the competitor field up until the time draws have been published. Once draws have been published, any withdrawals or no-shows should result in a walkover. No on-site alternates will be allowed.

Doubles Registration: Doubles sign up is not a part of the official registration process, and instead will be conducted by each individual tournament director. The exact procedures and open & close times for doubles sign up will be published by the tournament director. Players will be able to see fellow competitors on the UTR Events platform competitor list if they would like to reach out to potential partners.

Seeding: In an effort with UTR to promote level-based play and decrease the number of non-competitive matches in the circuit, 50% of the players in each draw will be seeded according to player UTRs while the remaining 50% are randomly placed within the draw.

Consolation: All events will provide first match loser consolation (FMLC) in all singles draws. All doubles draws are single elimination with no consolation matches.

Scoring: Singles matches will play 2 out of 3 sets with a 10-point match tie break in lieu of a 3rd set using no-ad scoring. Doubles will play an 8-game pro-set using no-ad scoring with a 7-point tie break held at 7-all. Men’s draws will use the Division I collegiate no-let rule.

Points Race: The ITA office will track points and post a “points race standings” each week on the ITA website. At the conclusion of the circuit, the top 5 men and the top 5 women will receive automatic entry into the ITA National Summer Championships as well as a $600 travel reimbursement to be used towards the expense of attending the ITA National Summer Championships at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas.
