Fast4 Championships


USTA Southern hosted four championships in an exciting, new format: Fast4! There were two championships on hard courts and two on clay courts, both including 18 & Over and 50 & Over players. 

Championships winners get their hands on the "golden ticket" to the nationals.

Mark your calendar for the following upcoming 2019 Fast4 National Qualifiers schedule:

  • June 15 - 16: Murfreesboro, TN – Adams Tennis Complex (ID# 700123019)
  • June 29 - 30: Little Rock, AR – Burns Park (ID# 700122319)
  • July 13 - 14: New Orleans, LA – University of New Orleans (ID# 700123119)
  • August 3 - 4: Atlanta, GA – Lifetime Peachtree Corners (ID# 700101319)

Champions from each NTRP level (3.0-5.0) in singles and doubles, separated by 18+ and 50+ divisions, are awarded invites to the NTRP National Championships taking place in spring of the following year. Champions will receive 300 STA points towards their Southern ranking.

The shortened format for each set offers a “fast” alternative to tennis, with four points, four games, and five rules:

  1. No-ad scoring is used
  2. Service lets are played
  3. Tie-breaks are played at three games all
  4. The first to four games wins the set
  5. Best 2-out-of-3 Fast4 sets will be used with Match Tiebreak in lieu of 3rd Fast 4 Set

By using the innovative Fast4 format, the Fast4 National Qualifiers have become the fastest growing Southern championships. Fast4 format gives players more matches in less time, allows tournaments to take only one or two days, and players have loved the exciting fast pace of the matches.
