Entries Close Thursday, December 01, 2011 12:00 PM Noon (Eastern Time)
Attention Players/Parents:
Tournament Players must enter contact information each time they register for a tournament. Due to a new policy from the USTA legal department, Tournament Directors no longer have access to phone numbers and email addresses of tournament participants unless the player has entered this information when they register for the tournament.

This means that if a player does not enter their phone and email information, a Tournament Director cannot contact them for any reason, including withdrawals, defaults, byes, rain delays, etc.

The only way to ensure that the Tournament Director has this information is for the player/parent to enter it when registering. We appreciate all of our player's/parent’s cooperation with this issue so that the tournament can continue to communicate necessary information to you.

USTA National Championship Wild Card Application Information
ELIGIBILITY:
All applicants must be eligible to enter a USTA National Championship, be in good standing with the applicant's Sectional Association, and may not be under suspension by the USTA. Wild Card consideration is given to players who were unable to meet the selection requirements for USTA National Championships that include sectional endorsement, appearance on the National Championship Selection List, and qualification through a USTA National Open. Applicants are not required to submit timely entries into the tournament to be considered for a Wild Card.

WILD CARD APPLICATION:
Click here to go to the online USTA National Championship Wild Card application. Applications MUST be filed separately for each National Championship and received by the appropriate deadline (see below).

DEADLINE:
Applications must be submitted online no later than 5:00 pm Eastern Time five (5) days after the entry deadline for the tournament for which the Wild Card is sought. Early application is strongly encouraged.

NOTIFICATION:

Late Entrants
Late Entrants - players entering after the December 1st deadline at 12:00 noon EST - will not be selected for the tournament. They are eligible to be placed on the Alternate List, but they will be placed at the bottom of the list in the order the late entry is received. Late Entrants have little to no chance of being accepted into the singles draw as the Alternate List typically consists of 50 to 150 players depending on the age division, and historically the tournament has approximately 10 Onsite Alternates per division.

Entering Two Divisions at USTA Winter National Championships
The USTA Regulations prohibit a player from entering two tournaments that have dates that overlap by one or more days unless a player has the prior written consent of both tournaments. There are two exceptions to this rule on the national junior level.

Both the USTA National Championships and the USTA National Opens allow for a player to enter more than one age division, however, it is important to understand the consequences of this decision.

If you want to play in one of these tournaments, but aren't sure if you will get in, you may enter up to two different age divisions. When selection is done, players are selected for the oldest age division first.
  • If you are selected into the older age division entered, you will not be selected into the younger division.
  • If you are not selected into the older division, you will only be considered for selection into the younger division and you will only be eligible to be an alternate in the younger division.
