New Formats for Level 5 Tournaments

Level 5 tournaments will have the option of utilizing Flighted Draws.

These tournaments will use the National Combined Standing List for player selection and seeding.

 

Players will be flighted 1-16 into the first flight, and 17-32 into the second flight based on their rankings. If it's not a full draw, we will split the draws evenly. For example: There are 17 players in a division. Draw A will have 9 players and Draw B will have 8 players. If a player on Draw A or B withdraws after draw is posted, the alternate (if there is a wait list) will go into that vacancy. 

 

If doubles are being played, doubles may begin on Friday afternoon after 5:00 p.m.

 

Here is the link to the USTA point chart for flighted draws. If you have questions regarding the player selection and/or seeding, please contact Maria Cercone in the USTA Southern office.
