ALL PLAYERS PLEASE REPORT BACK TO YOUR SITE FOR CHECK-IN FOR YOUR MATCH OF SINGLES AT 4:15! ALL DOUBLES WILL BE SHORTLY AFTER SINGLES. SO FOR DOUBLES REPORT TO YOUR SITES AT AROUND 5 PM.
Please play very close attention to your schedule. Look closely at not only the time of your matches but also the locations. TJC has two sets of courts, please go to the main courts for check in and they will tell you which set of courts your match will be on. At UT Tyler the check in desk will be in the Summers tennis Center at the top of the courts.
Note that for singles in the morning we are playing no-ad scoring with 3rd set 10 point TB's. It does not matter if you have signed up for dubs or not, please when you check in at 8 am or 9 am for your first rd. sign up for dubs with your partner. Draws for doubles will be made at 11 am, so if you have a bye first rd. show up early to sign up for doubles if you wish to play.
Practice warm up courts around town. There are 2 courts at Bishop T.K. Gorman school, 6 courts at Robert E. Lee High School, and 2 courts at Bridfield Park. These are all public facilities in town, so it is a first come first serve basis. So please plan accordingly. Both UT Tyler and TJC can be used for Warm-up until 7:45 am when matches start going on. So if you can please share courts.
Thank you all and look forward to seeing you all tomorrow. Travel safe.
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. 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: 128, Men’s & Women’s Doubles: 64)
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.
Hotel: The Hotel that is helping sponsor this event is the Holiday Inn Tyler on South Broadway. They have excellent rates and amazing accommodations. Their discounted rate for the tournament is $96 per night for a room, plus a free Full Hot Buffet Breakfast. We highly recommend to stay here. They are located only about 5 miles from both sites.
