When you’re ready to play competitive tennis, USTA Junior Tournaments are a great way to get out on the court and test your game.
🎇Important Announcement - Regulation Changes🎇
Effective Oct 1, 2019
The minimum standing required to play a level 5 or level 6 event has been updated from a requirement to a recommendation. What does this mean for players? Beginning Oct 1, all applicants for level 5 and level 6 events will be eligible to play if there is room in the draw. If a draw size is limited, the selection will be based on the most recent standing list.
The formal language of the regulation change is available here: Entry Level - Intermediate TournamentsADVERTISEMENT
The Mid-Atlantic is implementing an “excessive overrule” policy. This means if a player has been overruled twice in a match, the official may warn them that the next overrule will be subject to points under the point penalty system as unsportsmanlike conduct. What does this mean for players? An occasional overrule is going to happen, but if a concerning pattern emerges during a match the official onsite has the authority to code a player under the point penalty system.
The formal language of the regulation change is available here: Sportsmanship & Respect for the Opponent & Host Facility

Junior Tournaments Pathway
USTA Mid-Atlantic Tournament Pathway begins with short duration tournaments, short match formats, and low entry fees. There are logical and incremental progressions to longer competitions, longer match formats and corresponding reasonable increases in maximum recommended entry fees. All tournament levels have a recommended minimum amount of points to participate and to move on to higher levels.
