TEAM GUIDELINES

Baldwin_300
 

The U.S. national team is comprised of American players currently at the top of the ITF rankings. These players will receive funding based on their ranking.

Please note that these players will not receive a hometown visit unless the national coaching staff deems necessary and funding is available. The impetus for success is no longer a coach, but simply results.

Below is a list of requirements to make the national team and receive funding. Any questions or comments, please email us at wheelchairinfo@usta.com

The top four players in the ITF rankings will receive national team funding if:

Men’s and Women’s Teams:
Quad Team:
  • They are in the Top 30 in the world on the ITF Ranking List
  • They are in good standing with the USTA, USOC/US Paralympics, USADA and ITF
  • Agree to play on all American teams at international events if selected
  • They are in the Top 20 in the world on the ITF Ranking List
  • They are in good standing with the USTA, USOC/US Paralympics, USADA and ITF
  • Agree to play on all American teams at international events if selected

In 1998 the United States Tennis Association assumed responsibility for wheelchair tennis in America from the National Foundation for Wheelchair Tennis. Since then the USTA has become the first National Governing Body of both Olympic and Paralympic tennis governing Paralympics, ParaPan American Games and World Team Cup events.
 
The USTA remains dedicated to providing top-flight programming and developmental opportunities to wheelchair athletes of all ages and backgrounds willing to learn the sport and have fun.
