2012 USTA Southern Level 3 Tournament Format (not for State Qualifiers)

December 7, 2011 06:09 PM
Beginning January 1, 2012, all USTA Southern Level 3 tournaments will adhere to a set and consistent format. Taking cost and school day factors into account, the Junior Competition Committee has determined that the Level 3 tournaments will be conducted as follows:
 
Matches are only to be scheduled on Saturday and Sunday

Each division will consist of two 16 feed in draws, with dependent draws
o The draws will be waterfalled to make two balanced draws
o Each draw will use the new Level 3 Point table (increased points)
o Selections will remain the same as in the past. The top 32 players will be selected using the same process for bringing in the lower age division (four from the top 40)
o Up until Wednesday prior to the tournament start date, alternates will fill in for any withdrawn player. On Wednesday, the tournament director will split the 32 players into two balanced 16 draws using a format supplied by the Southern office
o Seeding must be done using the Southern Seeding Calculator
o After the draws are complete, the next alternate will fill a "withdrawal" spot no matter in which draw the withdrawal occurs. If a seeded player withdraws prior to 9:00 am local time the Friday before the tournament, the seeds shall be adjusted (only in that particular draw) according to FAC. If the withdrawal occurs after 9:00 am local time, the next alternate would be placed on same line as withdrawing seed
o Out of Section players would be dealt as has been done in the past, only after all of our Section players have been taken care of first.
o In the 12s division, four players from the 10s division will be selected by the guidelines but these players will not be considered for seeding
o Players will be guaranteed three matches but most will have four
 
Point Table
o The new Level 3 point table will be used starting January 1, 2012

Draw information
o Two 16 feed in draws with dependent draws.
o All single matches will be best of two with a match tiebreak to be used for the third
o If the number of entrants for a division is less than 24, one draw will be made using a modified back draw.
 
Awards
o TBD. Looking at trophy for top four in each draw
o Certificate to be given to each winner of the "sub" draws (supplied by Southern office)
 
Entry Fees
o Entry fee will be $50.00
o Additional $10.00 if hosting doubles
o Additional $10.00 if indoor tournament
- Requirements for Level 3 Status
o TBD. Looking at staying the same or possibly using the Southern Standings (for example: 25% of draw in top 75 of standings etc.)
 
Doubles
o Two draws of eight
o Pro set to be used
