NTRP NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS:
HOW TO QUALIFY IN TEXAS
The NTRP Nationals Championships are national adult tournaments that leverage the NTRP rating system as a way to create level-based competition at the 18 & Over, 40 & Over, and 55 & Over age groups. Each year, NTRP National Champions are crowned in men’s and women’s singles and doubles at the 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5 levels in 18 & Over, 40 & Over, and 55 & Over age groups, as well as at the 5.0 level in the 18 & Over division.
Below are qualification requirements for Texas players
18+, 40+ and 55+
Players will be selected based upon their Year-End Final Rankings in the 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5 & 5.0 divisions for all 18+, 40+ and 55+ age groups in both singles and doubles.
Players will be allowed to compete in both singles and doubles, if they are qualified by Year-End Final Rankings in both divisions. ADVERTISEMENT However, due to the fact that the 18+ singles, 40+ Singles and the 55+ singles are played on the same weekend at different locations, players will not be able to play both the 18+ singles, 40+ singles, and 50+ singles, even if qualified for multiple. Players will have the option of choosing which they would like to play. This also holds true for 18+ doubles, 40+ doubles, and 55+ doubles. Therefore, players will be allowed to play in 18+ singles, 40+ singles, or 55+ singles AND 18+ doubles, 40+ doubles, or 55+ doubles, if qualified.
The top doubles players selected will be able to choose their own partner, as long as that partner is a USTA Texas Section resident, on the 2022 Year End Ranking list for the division they'll play in, and meets all other criteria for the division.
Self-rated and Mixed Doubles exclusive ratings are not eligible.
The sub-committee will reserve the right to use an “all factors” method to fill any open positions not filled through this criteria.
If other USTA Sections are unable to send their full quota of players, USTA Texas may be awarded wildcards and can submit an Alternates for Texas players to take those spots.
Year-End Final Rankings will be posted the first week of January. Players will have 2 weeks after they’re posted to report any ranking questions or issues to National. Then, Year End Rankings will be locked for the year. After that, USTA Texas will be reaching out to top ranked NTRP players for eligibility and availability to attend the NTRP National Championship. Be on the lookout for your email from USTA Texas in January/February of 2023. If you have any questions about your eligibility for the NTRP National Championship, please contact Veronica Nicholls, USTA Texas Competitive Coordinator via email at email@example.com.
