Multiple Age Divisions: For L3 and L4 tournaments, players may register for multiple age divisions, but will only be admitted to one; selection is done for the older age groups first in the following order: 18; 16; 14; and 12. If a player is selected to an older age division, they will automatically be withdrawn from the younger division. Players who registered for two age divisions and were not selected to the older age division are only eligible for selection or placement on the alternates list in the younger age division.
Selection into closed Level 3 singles and doubles events is based on the most recently published National Standing list that is filtered to include only players who are residents of the sectional association. Players are selected in descending order with the highest-ranked players selected first. Order of Selection: the tournament shall accept eligible players who have submitted timely entries and successful wild-card applicants into the singles main draw in the following order:
28 players who have registered by the close of registration will be selected by utilizing the National Standing List filtered to include New England sectional associations players.
The following four positions can be determined by the Wild Card process as outlined below.
- In the case that all four Wild Card positions are not filled, the remaining spots will be determined by utilizing the National Standing List filtered to include New England sectional associations players.
At all New England closed Level 3 and Level 4 singles tournaments up to one eighth of the draw may be reserved for players who are granted a wild card.
Wild cards may be granted to any eligible player with a good record of sportsmanship and who follows the normal online entry process for the tournament by the entry deadline. Wild cards may be used to select players into a closed Level 3 or Level 4 New England tournament in which the following criteria may be considered:
a. Any player with the potential to improve the overall strength of the field of the tournament may be considered.
b. A player whose ability to qualify has been affected by injury, illness, or other personal circumstance may be considered.
c. A player with a high standing in a younger age division of the event may be considered. d. No player who submits a late wild card application may be considered.
Players (teams) requesting a wild card must also follow the normal online entry process for the tournament by the entry deadline.
Wild Card Requests are reviewed by the USTA New England Director of Player Development and may be approved by either the chair of the USTA New England National Selection Committee or the chair of the New England Coaches Commission.
