Ranking rules

Upon entering a USPTA Surface Championship tournament or Division Event, you become eligible for a player ranking. These rankings are categorized by gender and age division – singles and doubles. Rankings will determine who qualifies for the USPTA Masters Invitational.

USPTA rankings are a source of personal pride and peer prestige, and are career enhancing. Clubs look good when their tennis professional succeeds in tournament play. When there is individual publicity, there is the potential for additional career opportunities.

USPTA rankings can be applied toward Master Professional credit, and results from USPTA tournaments are reported to the USTA for international ranking consideration.

Only player divisions offered in the USPTA Masters Invitational are considered for ranking/qualification purposes. A player must have at least one win at a USPTA National Surface Championships to be considered for qualification into the USPTA Masters Invitational.

Sanctioned tournaments

Any member desiring to have a tournament or match sanctioned by USPTA should do the following:

  1. Make a formal bid for sanction to the USPTA World Headquarters. Contact the USPTA for an official application form.
  2. Fill out sanction application, keeping one copy for his or her files.
  3. Forward the original to the World Headquarters at least 60 days prior to the tournament.
  4. Upon approval of sanction, the tournament host/applicant and USPTA Division will be notified by the USPTA Tournament Committee Chairman or USPTA World Headquarters.

USPTA-sanctioned tournaments are eligible for allocation of tournament balls, upon request to their respected USPTA Division, depending on their availability. Complete draw sheets showing results of the tournament should be forwarded to the World Headquarters immediately. All tournaments must be sanctioned by USPTA in order to be considered for national USPTA ranking.

Tournament regulations and requirements

The USPTA president shall maintain, by appointment from all divisions, a standing Tournament Committee. This committee shall seek bids, receive and recommend their acceptance or rejection for the USPTA Surface Championships and USPTA Division Tournaments, and for any other event it may deem desirable and practical. The Executive Committee shall have final power to approve or disapprove the recommendations of the Tournament Committee, and also shall have power to subsidize or refuse subsidy of these events. The Executive Committee also shall have power to delegate the power of final decision to the Tournament Committee whenever it is deemed advisable, as when time presses and another Executive Committee meeting is impractical.

Upon approval, the Tournament Committee shall have full power to run the competitive events scheduled, including the power to delegate any or all authority to members of the division hosting the event.

USPTA playing rules and age classifications shall be used.

The committee shall have power to limit the number of entries from any division only if necessary to achieve a manageable draw.

No member whose dues are unpaid or who is not otherwise a member in good standing shall be accepted as an entry.

The Tournament Committee shall realize that the two basic events (USPTA Surface Championships and USPTA Division Tournaments) should receive priority whenever any conflict arises. These should be as much as possible on a rotating basis, scheduled two years ahead if possible, never occurring in the same place twice running unless this is unavoidable. The committee should encourage all divisions to realize that these events put us before the public both divisionally and nationally, therefore rotation is in everyone's best interest.

The committee shall have the power to sanction divisional tournaments after making sure these do not conflict with dates most convenient for divisional annual meetings and competitions.
The committee shall have the authority in all matters of detail.

Requirements for tournament entry

  1. All membership requirements, including completion of the Certification Exam, must be submitted at least 60 days prior to the entry date of a USPTA tournament in order for the person in question to be eligible to play in the tournament. The 60 days is to allow time for the grading of the Certification Exam and the processing of the membership application.
  2. If all requirements are met, the exams are graded and the results are recorded at the World Headquarters prior to the entry date of the tournament, the entry will be accepted. However, USPTA will not be held responsible by any individual or any of its divisions if the entry cannot be accepted due to requirements not being fulfilled prior to the 60-day deadline.
  3. The chief executive officer shall immediately ensure that, in conjunction with the president and the Executive Committee, the members shall belong only to those divisions in which they physically reside, and that the records of the Association be changed accordingly.
