NTRP Fast4 National Qualifers
Every year, USTA Southern hosts four championships in this exciting format in two age levels: 18 & over and 50 & over. By using the innovative Fast4 format, the NTRP Qualifiers have become the fastest growing Southern championships. They utilize NTRP Ratings with divisions 3.0-5.0 for Men and Women in both age groups (except the 50+ 5.0 division). Champions will receive 300 STA points towards their Southern ranking and winners get their hands on the "golden ticket" to the nationals in the following spring. 

The NTRP National Champions are crowned in men’s and women’s singles and doubles at the 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5 levels in both 18 & over and 50 & over age groups, as well as at the 5.0 level in the 18 & over division. 

The USTA will combine 2019 and 2020 qualifiers and expand the draw in 2021 to provide fair opportunities to all USTA Sections and players. Click here for the schedule and more information on the national championships.

The 2020 Southern NTRP Fast4 Qualifier Championships are:
