PRO CIRCUIT

ABOUT THE USTA PRO CIRCUIT

The USTA launched its Pro Circuit 34 years ago to provide players with the opportunity to gain the professional ranking points needed to compete on the major pro tours. It has since grown to become the largest developmental tennis circuit in the world, consisting of approximately 90 tournaments and nearly $3 million in prize money. The expanded schedule gives American players more competitive opportunities in the United States, thus making it easier and more affordable to earn a pro ranking.

WOMEN'S CIRCUIT

pc_triangle_womenWomen’s events on the USTA Pro Circuit consist of $10,000, $25,000, $50,000, $75,000 and $100,000 tournaments. Each event has 32 players in the main singles draw and 16 teams competing in doubles.
 
The $10,000 tournaments are entry-level events that give young players the opportunity to earn their first ranking points. The women who compete are usually juniors or college players, and players who may be as high as Nos. 250 to 300 in the WTA Rankings. The singles qualifying draw is 64 or 128 players at this level.
 
The competition and the ranking points increase in the $25,000 tournaments—at this level a player can best determine whether to continue to the next tier of $50,000 to $100,000 events as a touring professional. The $25,000 qualifying draw can be 32 or 64 players.
 
The caliber of player at the premium-level events, the $50,000 to $100,000 tournaments, is close to that of the WTA. They feature women ranked as high as No. 40. The qualifying draw size for the $50,000 events and above is 32 players.

MEN'S CIRCUIT

pc_triangle_menThere are two types of men’s events on the USTA Pro Circuit: Futures and Challengers. Each event has 32 players in the main singles draw and 16 teams competing in doubles.
 
Futures are professional tournaments offering $10,000 to $15,000 in prize money and typically serve as the proving ground for top-ranked juniors, college players and pros at the beginning of their careers. Players competing in the Futures generally have an ATP Entry Ranking between No. 150 and No. 900 in the world. The singles qualifying draw is 64 or 128 for the $10,000 events, and 64 for the $15,000 events. Players must reach the round of 16 of the main draw to earn a ranking point.
 
Challengers offer $50,000 to $100,000 in prize money. These tournaments serve as a bridge between the Futures and the ATP World Tour, and enable players to earn more points per round than they do in the Futures events. In fact, a player can earn a Top 100 ranking by playing solely in Challengers. The qualifying draw size is 32 players.
