About UTR So Oregon / NorCal - Ashland I
This tournament is for all ages (juniors and adults) - bring the whole family! You will be placed in a draw with the same level players - we will do as many draws as needed to accommodate every player. You are guaranteed a minimum of 3 matches but we will try to give you 4 matches.
Max total draw for this tournament is 40.
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.
All Draws will be Level-Based.
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.
Each tournament has the flexibility to format match, set and game scoring to best fit the number of players and courts to give players the most amount of matches possible. The goal is to play best of 3 sets with regular scoring.
Coaching may be allowed by a Tournament Director approved coach and after signing a coaching agreement. Coaching can happen at changeover, within the regular pace of play and without verbal interruption. Parents may not coach unless they are a regular staff member at one of the represented clubs.
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.
