East Texas Jr. Gran Prix Circuit

Tournaments & Guidelines

Jacksonville June 8, 2019

Hollytree June 29, 2019

Cascades July 27, 2019

Texas State Jr. Gran Prix Championships–Sept. 15-16, 2019

John Newcomb’s Tennis Ranch in New Braunfels

The 2019 East Texas Jr. Gran Prix circuit is a series of one day junior tournaments open to all area juniors champs and below. Juniors of all levels below Super Champs are eligible to participate in the circuit. Champs who will age up prior to August 1, 2019 are eligible to participate in the age division they will qualify for as of September 1, 2019. Champs (as of August 1, 2019) will not be eligible to advance to the September 2019 Jr. Gran Prix State Championships. All juniors may participate in the age division they are eligible for as of the first day of the month of any particular tournament. Juniors who are doing very well in their current age division and who will age up prior to September 1, 2019 are encouraged to play (local tournaments) in the age division they must play in as of September 1, 2019. Juniors who are not winning the majority of their matches in their current age division are encouraged not to play “up” into the next higher age bracket even if they will age up prior to September 1, 2019. If a junior plays our local tournaments in 14's for example and finishes #1 but then turns 15 on or before September 1, 2018 he/she will not be eligible to advance to the state championships since he/she qualified in 14’s but is now 15.

Players will accumulate points throughout the series of events based on the following point chart.This point chart is new for the 2019 ranking year:

4 points for each round won in the main draw or round robin

4 points for a BYE in the main draw if the following round is won

4 points for a 1st round default if the following round is won

(4 points will be awarded for all other default wins)

2 points for each round won in the consolation draw

1 point for participating in and completing two rounds in each tournament

If a player withdraws or no shows from (2) events then he will be ineligible to advance with Team East Texas to the State Championships.

Entry Fee for singles in each event is payable by credit card only at www.EastTexasTennis.topdoglive.com and is $20 inclusive of registration fee and entry fee. Entry fees cannot be refunded. If a junior enters a tournament and needs to withdraw prior to the tournament deadline he/she may request by email (at least 24 hours PRIOR to the deadline of the event withdrawing from) to be moved to another tournament on the list and must indicate which tournament they wish to move to at the time of their withdrawal. Only one request per player per year will be honored. Parents please check your schedules prior to entering the tournaments!

The top two point earners in each age division will earn the chance to compete for Team East Texas in the Texas State Team Championships held September 2019 at John Newcomb’s Tennis Ranch in New Braunfels. Should either of the top two point earners not be able to attend the championships then others will be invited based on the strength/quality of wins, order of finish, number of events played, attitude and sportsmanship. The alternates will not necessarily be selected in order of finish. If a player qualifies for the state tournament in two age divisions from playing in different events throughout the local competition then he/she will represent the team in the "younger" age division to increase the strength of our team. Likewise if younger players play “up” and qualify for the State Tournament the team coach has the right to play that player in younger age divisions at the State Championships if possible in order to benefit the team.Age divisions offered in each tournament will include green ball co-ed 10’s, boys & girls 12’s, boys & girls 14’s and boys & girls 16-18's. Current point standings are available at www.EastTexasTennis.topdoglive.com by clicking on any junior gran prix tournament then on the STANDINGS tab in the top right corner of the page. It is the player’s responsibility to check point standings and notify the tournament director within 10 days of any event he/she feels like the points might have been awarded incorrectly.

USTA membership is not required to participate in any of the East Texas Jr. Gran Prix tournaments or the State Championships. All local tournaments will offer consolation and or round robin play if less than (5) in the draw.If a division has only 2 players in the tournament when the draw is made the tournament director will give those players the option to withdraw for full refund or be moved into the next higher division.Players must notify the tournament of their decision within 24 hours after the Monday deadline.Match format will be based on the size of the tournament and draws.Green Dot balls will be used for all 10 & Under divisions.USTA rules govern match play.Parents are not permitted on the courts or allowed to coach.
