No-Show Defaults: If a player does not send written notice that they will need to default a match, to the Tournament Director at least one hour before the date and time of the scheduled match, the defaulting player will receive 5 Suspension Points.
NTRP TX Sanctioned players are required to Self Rate, if they have no rating. If a player enters and plays a TX Sanctioned tournament levels division with a “0.0” rating, they will be notified that Self Ratings are now required for play in levels divisions in Texas Sanctioned Tournaments. A player violating this rule by playing in a levels division in a second sanctioned tournament without a self rating will receive an automatic 30 day suspension and any points earned from those tournaments will be removed.
Round Robin draws: a player who is defaulted for any reason other than lateness shall not play in subsequent matches. If a player or team defaults, they will not be allowed to play the Rounds following that defaulted match, and if subsequent matches are played, those matches will not count towards rankings.
SEEDING: USTA Texas recommends the “All Factors Method” of seeding for Ad/Sr/SS divisions and that Committees use the Texas 12 Month Rolling Standings List for initial considerations. If other information is to be considered (such as head-to-head wins), emails must be sent to the Tournament Director immediately after entry deadline.
