NEW DIVISIONS – Age 50+ players – please note that this tournament is offering the new age 50+ 3.0, 3.5, 4.0 and 4.5 levels divisions. These new divisions will receive qualifying points towards the 2020 National NTRP Championship tournament.

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.

Messages

Excessive Overrule Guideline: The USTA Texas Officials Committee along with the Competitive Department has established a guideline in reference to excessive overrules as clarified in the Friend at Court. This guideline states “Once a player has been overruled for a second time in a match, they will be cautioned that after another overrule, they will be penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct under the point penalty system.”
ATTENTION ALL SPECTATORS
(INCLUDES PARENTS, COACHES, RELATIVES, FRIENDS, ETC.)

In an effort to promote a more enjoyable and fair experience for all, the following policy is in immediate force and effect, and shall be diligently and stringently enforced. USTA Texas has implemented a “ZERO TOLERANCE” policy for improper behavior.1. Any attempt by a spectator to speak to the official in an abusive or disrespectful manner regarding a line call or other ruling during match play shall be cause for immediate removal from the playing area and, if warranted, from the premises.
2. Any spectator behavior deemed unacceptable towards a player, other spectator or staff member shall be cause for immediate removal from the playing area or the entire premises. If said behavior is directed towards a player, either before, during or after a tournament, it shall result in an automatic and immediate suspension of that spectator’s right to attend USTA Texas tournaments, for a period of time to be determined by the USTA Texas Discipline and Grievance Committee.
3. Refusal to adhere to a removal request shall trigger immediate enforcement of the point penalty system against the player with whom the spectator is involved (per point penalty system regulations), including possible immediate default from the tournament.4. The On-Site Official is the SOLE judge regarding unacceptable behavior. 

There are no refunds for withdrawals after the entry deadline or for weather related cancellations.
