What Is The Rule On Adding A Player To Our Team?

Should a team drop below the team minimum of six players (3 boys and 3 girls), then one boy OR one girl may be added to the championship advancing team, provided the player meets local play history requirements and comes from the same local play program and local play season. Players may not be added if team minimum is met. All additions must be made by August 5, 2016 unless approved by the tournament committee.

What Is Local Play History?

A player is eligible to progress to championship level competition if that player has played in at least two team matches during its local team tennis season and has the results of said three matches recorded in the TennisLink.USTA.com system. A retired match shall count toward advancing for all players involved. Playing singles and doubles in one team match counts a one playing time.
