USTA Southwest Adult Ranking Requirements


In order to receive an adult year-end ranking, a player must have a current USTA membership, and have a valid home address within the boundaries of the USTA Southwest. 


The player must compete in at least one Level 1 or Level 2 USTA-SW event in his/her age group, and at least one other sanctioned tournament held in the Southwest.  





Level 1


 - USTA Southwest Adult Slam Series Indoor Championships (Santa Fe, NM)

 - USTA Southwest Adult Slam Series Grass Court (Phoenix)

 - USTA Southwest Adult Slam Series Clay Court Championships (Tucson)

 - USTA Southwest Adult Slam Series Hard Court Championships (location rotates across the Section)

 - Southwest Adult Open (rotates across the Section)


Level 2

   Rattlesnake Open (Tucson)

   Phoenix Adult & Senior Open (Phoenix)

plus any National Level 1 tournaments held in the Southwest** in your age division will be counted towards this requirement  

(**The only event this applies to currently is the Men's 35 National Hard Court Championships. This tournament adds ranking points to the Men's 35s divisions in singles and doubles).  




Total year-end rankings are calculated on a best of top five Southwest tournaments played  to determine the year-end Southwest ranking.


For a complete listing of yearly Southwest tournaments by month, visit TennisLink, click on the Adult Divisions tab under 'Southwest' . 




National tournaments and even international tournaments (International Tennis Federation) are held across the United States and are a great opportunity for players to compete in their various age groups at the highest levels and actually achieve national or international rankings.


These tournaments are held throughout the year as well at various spots across the country as well as the globe. 


These are typically upper-echelon tournaments for age group division of play, but many are open to play. Check with each tournament to see if you qualify.
