USTA National now allows Tournaments to allow non-members to participate in certain USTA Sanctioned events. Here are the details:
Adult Tournaments – On the Online Sanction Form, the Tournament Director must select the “Entry Level” box for Skill Level on the General Info tab. This may be done for any NTRP, Age Division, or Open tournaments. We have confirmed ranking points will not be affected and if a USTA member plays a non-USTA member, the USTA member will still receive the same number of points as if they were playing a USTA member. To do this for 2015 tournaments moving forward, please contact Adam Hutchinson at email@example.com to have your Online Sanction Form adjusted.
Junior Tournaments – This will only be allowed if a Tournament Director is running a Entry only draw. If a Tournament Director is also running Intermediate/Advanced with their Entry only draw they may not do this option. ADVERTISEMENT To do this option, the Tournament Director must select the “Entry Level” box for Skill Level on the General Info tab. To do this for 2016 tournaments moving forward, please contact Trenton Corvino at firstname.lastname@example.org to have your Online Sanction Form adjusted.
CREATING NON-USTA MEMBER NUMBERS – Tennis Link will no longer be accepting lists from Tournament Directors to create non-member accounts. All non-members/foreign players who wish to participate in your tournament, including those players who have been assigned a non-member number in the past, will now need to create a USTA account. This change to one USTA account will help players avoid tracking multiple accounts and multiple logins/passwords in TennisLink. Players will want to follow the instructions below to receive their USTA account number. Please feel free to reach out to the TennisLink Support Team at Linkteam@usta.com with any questions.
To create a USTA account, navigate to:
2. Choose Create Account beneath "Do you play in a USTA program (Team Tennis, USTA Flex Leagues, Tournaments) without a USTA Membership?"
3. Select the radio button next to statement "I am new to TennisLink and want to create a new account"
4. Complete contact information > and you will be issued a USTA account number.
