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.

ITA Summer Playing Membership (Registration Button at top-right of page)
All participants must have a current 2017 ITA Summer Playing Membership ($30) to participate in a Summer Circuit event. Participants can only purchase an ITA membership through the ITA webpage (itatennis.com). After purchasing an ITA membership, participants will receive a confirmation email that provides them with their 2017 ITA Member ID # along with tournament registration PIN #’s in order to register for a Summer Circuit event.

Entry Requirements: All Summer Circuit events are open to all players on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Entry Fees: $60, includes both singles and doubles. THE INDIANA ITA IS AN OUTDOOR EVENT. THERE IS NO INDOOR BACK-UP SITE. IN THE EVENT OF RAIN, WE WILL DRY THE COURTS AND RESUME PLAY WHEN THE COURTS ARE DRY.

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. If a player withdraws within 10 days of the start of the event, he/she forfeits their entry fee.

Maximum Draw Size: (Men’s & Women’s Singles: 96 for, Men’s & 64 for Women’s Doubles: 32)
Each tournament director will have the ability to limit the number of registrants he/she will accept into the tournament by setting a maximum draw size capacity. Once a draw (men’s or women’s) is at capacity, the UTR events platform will no longer accept registrations. THE INDIANA ITA IS AN OUTDOOR EVENT. THERE IS NO INDOOR BACK-UP SITE. IN THE EVENT OF RAIN, WE WILL DRY THE COURTS AND RESUME PLAY WHEN THE COURTS ARE DRY.

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: Men's and Women's Doubles are limited to draws of 32 teams. Registration for doubles will stay open through the first day of the tournament, Saturday, July 29. Draws will be made late Saturday night, and doubles play will not begin before 12 noon on Sunday, July 30. 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.
