About 2017 ITA Summer Circuit - University of Nebraska
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.
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.

Maximum Draw Size: (Men’s & Women’s Singles: _64__, Men’s & 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.
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. 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. The $60 entry fee includes both singles and doubles. During the registration process players will only register for singles. Doubles sign-up will be done on site or by email to German Dalmagro if you already have a partner. Players can see fellow competitors on UTR events if they'd like to reach out to potential partners, prior to arriving at the tournament site. A doubles sign-up sheet will be at the site's tournament desk with pre-registered teams, and with the need a partner sheet as well. Doubles sign-ups will be during the opening round of singles, Saturday morning (July 8) to allow for draws to be made, posted and play to begin later that afternoon (July 8). If you want to be paired with a partner or you do not wish to play doubles, please notify the site director. If you don't have a partner, but want to play doubles be sure to write your name under the "Need Partner" section of the sign-up sheet and we will pair you.
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.
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.
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.
Tournament Director: German Dalmagro
