Selection Process- The Junior Competition Committee will select players for the national team competitions (BG 12’s, 14’s & 16’s Zone Team, BG16’s Intersectional, and BG 18’s National Team Championship Team). The selection of our teams will be based on the players ranked in the top 100 nationally for the age division in question (no more than half of any team will be taken from the top 100 on the national standing lists of the age division in question), followed by the players ranked on the USTA MS Sectional standings list published for the age division in question.  The final selection of players is at the discretion of the Junior Competition Committee and will be determined by what is felt to be in the best interests of the Section.

 

WILDCARD AVAILABLE FOR TEAM EVENTS:  The criteria for the wildcard selection: The eligible player must have the highest UTR of all the wildcard applicants and must be greater than or equal to the 2nd player selected on the team.

 

One wild card per gender will be available (excluding Boys/Girls 12s Zone Team).  Players must apply for the wildcard online before entries close.  They must also apply for the event through the TennisLink online application before entries close.  The application is available here: WILDCARD ONLINE APPLICATION FORM
