Registration Tips

For families unfamiliar with the USTA tournament play registering for a tournament can be overwhelming. We are hopeful that the following tips are helpful in answering common questions however, please reach out to the tournament director if needed.

  • Q: How do I know what tournaments are age appropriate?
    • A player must be the same age or younger on the first day of the month the tournament is held to qualify. For Orange Ball
      vs. Green Dot tournaments, a player must meet the minimum number of Net Generation “play points” gained from Orange
      Ball play to qualify for a Green Dot tournament.
  • Q: What do the levels of each tournament represent?
    • Level 7 – Single Day tournament scheduled for only a few hours. For players with limited tournament experience.
      Level 6 – Central Indiana Tournament (our local district), 2 day tournament.
      Level 5 – USTA Midwest Level & Central Indiana Tournament (our section & district), 3 day tournament.
      Level 4 – USTA Midwest Level, Up to 4 day tournament.
      Level 3 – USTA National & USTA Midwest Level, Up to 4 day tournament.
      Level 2 – USTA National Tournament, 4 day tournament
      Level 1 – USTA National Tournament, 4 day tournament
  • Q: I registered prior to the deadline, why was my child not selected?
    • Tournaments have a set number of players for each draw. Most tournaments are tournament director selected based on
      strength of record (unless otherwise noted). As a result, if 100 players apply for a 32 draw tournament then the strongest 32
      players (based on their USTA ranking points) will be selected regardless of the day or time registered.
  • Q: How do I know when my child will play?
    • Each tournament will list online (at the same place you registered) when draws are available, however it is typically on the
      Wednesday prior to the tournament.
  • Q: We have a family engagement for a few hours during the tournament. Can we not be scheduled during that time?
    • Due to limited court time and to allow the tournament to be completed on time, players should be available during the
      entire time of the tournament. We will not be able to accommodate schedule requests.
