USTA Eastern strives to provide quality competitive opportunities for players to contest and develop their skills against other players, as they progress through the USTA Eastern and USTA National tournament pathways.  The utmost levels of courtesy and sportsmanship are expected of all participants and spectators at all times. 

 

A player’s USTA Membership is based in 1 of 17 geographic sections.  The Eastern Section is comprised of New York State, northern New Jersey, and Greenwich, Connecticut.  Players are only eligible for a ranking in the section that their membership is based; however they may be allowed to participate in tournaments in other sections, though these events will not count toward their Eastern ranking.

 

Age Eligibility

 

USTA Eastern tournaments are offered in the 10 & Under (10U), 12U, 14U, 16U, & 18U divisions. ADVERTISEMENT  Players become ineligible to play in an age division on the 1st day of their birthday month, the year they turn 11, 13, 15, 17, or 19. 

 

Tournament Levels 

 

In the USTA Eastern Section, entry-level events are unranked (do not award ranking points) and called L3 UPS events. After winning two L3 UPS events, players are required to move to the intermediate level.  Intermediate events are named L2 Opens. Intermediate/Advanced events are designated as L1B Challengers, and advanced tournaments are designated as L1A or L1 Championships. High Performance tournaments: The Super Six, Empire Cup Doubles  and the Eastern Sweet 16 are offered beyond the L1 level; though these events may contain ranking requirements for participation.

Registering for events

 

Players will find and register for tournaments using tennislink.usta.com. By registering for USTA Eastern tournaments players are acknowledging that they know and understand, as well as agree to abide by all rules and regulations detailed in Friend at Court.

 

Concurrent Tournaments

 

No player may register for more than one sanctioned tournament where the sanction dates overlap, unless the official/posted tournament start dates are at least three days apart. Some very limited exceptions may apply. Please see our Rules and Regulations page for details.

 

Eligibility for the US Open Eastern Junior Awards Gala

 

This event celebrates top performing juniors in each age group. The award winners will be the top 3 players listed on the first standing list published in the month of July in each age division (12-18). Since we do not have 10U rankings any more, the 10 and under awards will be awarded to the highest ranked 10U players within the 12U standings.  We will use the current birthday eligibility rules (Players become ineligible to play in an age division on the 1st day of their birthday month, the year they turn 11, 13, 15, 17, or 19.), which will only include players born on or after 8/1/2006 to determine our top three 10 and under recipients. These players and their families will be guests of USTA Eastern for day at the US Open in Flushing, NY.

Player and Spectator Agreement

 

By registering for USTA Eastern tournaments players are acknowledging that they know and understand, as well as agree to abide by all rules and regulations detailed in the literature referenced above,  USTA Rules and Regulations apply to parents & spectators as well; the player is responsible for their entourage. Poor behavior by spectators may result in point penalties for players. Poor personal behavior, bad sportsmanship or any acts detrimental to the game may prevent endorsement to as well as jeopardize participation in USTA National and Eastern tournaments.

 

Disciplinary/Code of Conduct System

 

The aim of the Disciplinary/COC system is to maintain fair and reasonable standards of conduct by all players participating in USTA sanctioned tournaments. The Point Penalty/Code of Conduct Suspension System, detailed on our Rules and Regulations webpage shall apply to all USTA & USTA Eastern sanctioned tournaments, and applies to conduct:

  • during all matches (main draw, consolation, qualifying, and doubles)
  • during tournament activities
  • at tournament facilities
  • at any other entity that a player would be associated with during that specific tournament (e.g. tournament hotels)

National Championship Wild Card Online Application  - All National Championship and USTA/ITF Junior Wild Card requests are now online applications.  E-mailed or faxed applications will no longer be accepted. Follow the links in order to submit your application. Please note that the deadline for submission of wild card applications is no later than 5 days after the entry deadline.

 

Competitive Training Centers

 

The concept behind the USTA Competitive Training Centers involves bringing together the very best players to compete and train. CTC's offer low cost, high level training to these best players. These centers are designed as supplemental training for players ages 10-13. 

 

Coaches Commission

 

The mission statement of the Eastern Coaches Commission is: "To create the best training and competitive environment as it relates to younger players (8-12 years old)." The USTA Eastern Coaches Commission sponsors workshops for boys and girls 10 & under. The USTA Eastern Section sponsors the Zone Team Training Camp. Last year, this camp took place June 15 -16th at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center. At this camp, players train, drill, receive uniforms, and attend seminars with valuable information. The BG 16s and 18s attend a college seminar while the BG 12s and 14s attend a seminar that educates them on the pathway to prepare for Zonal and National competition.
