2019 BNP Paribas Open – March 10-15, 2019 - Indian Wells, California

Incredible tennis may be what first attracts fans to the BNP Paribas Open, but it is the beautiful setting and onsite excitement that keeps them coming back. Not only is the BNP Paribas Open the largest ATP World Tour Masters 1000 and WTA Premier combined event in the world, it is housed in one of sport’s most beautiful venues: the Indian Wells Tennis Garden. The BNP Paribas Open is an ATP World Tour Masters 1000 event on the men's tour and a WTA Premier event on the women's tour. Both draws feature almost all of the top 100 pros in the world competing for the men’s and womens titles. The Indian Wells Tennis Garden has become a staple not only in the Coachella Valley but also in the world of professional tennis. It is revered, respected and admired as the home of a premier tennis tournament and its recent renovations and improvement ensure that it remains a place for fans to enjoy world-class tennis matches; unparalleled dining options; and some of the most scenic views anywhere in the world. The desert tennis oasis dazzles players, fans and sponsors with its stunning 54-acre landscape, state-of-the-art facility and 16,100-seat Stadium 1, the second largest in the world.

2018 East Texas USPTA Fall League!

Last Day to add players: Sunday September 9 at 9pm

Players cannot "change" teams after August 19, 2018

Please begin using http://EastTexasTennis.Topdoglive.com to log in from now on

www.EastTexasTennis.com will be removed in the near future.

Schedules were posted on this site July 31st. Please look over your schedules carefully and poll your players to make sure you have enough players to play all your matches. If a team defaults both lines in a single match their score is a -4 for that week. Captains must manually enter all scores in topdog. Scorecards for each match with players names from both teams are available from this site. Line #1 is worth 5 points and Line #2 is worth 3 points. If a team wins both lines they win 8-0 and this score must be manually entered in the yellow boxes by the captain entering that weeks team score. Both captains are responsible for making sure the score is entered within 24 hours of the match. The most common mistake is captain forgetting to enter the team score for the match after entering the match results. The first captain online should record the score and the second captain should confirm it.

Please make sure you're email is on your player profile and check that you do want to receive emails from this site.

Winners of each division will advance to Houston January 18-20, 2019

In order to advance with winning teams players in round robins with less than 9 scheduled matches must play twice (default wins do not count)

Players on teams with 9 or more scheduled matches must play a minimum of (3) local league matches to advance with their winning team. More information on Houston is posted on facebook: USPTA Texas State Team Championships

League Information:The East Texas USPTA adult league is open for all players ages 18 & above as of the end of 2018. Players do not have to be a member of the USTA or USPTA to participate. Teams consist of a minimum of 6 players eligible to compete at the team’s level of play. Players should play by their most recent published USTA rating. Any player who was DQ'd at any time after January 2018 ratings were published must play at that higher rating. If a player appealed his/her rating he/she must play by the appealed decision. If a player already has a self rating from earlier leagues and no published rating then that self rating must be used. Players with no rating may join any team he/she feels he/she is eligible for. Self rated players are subject to review and disqualification at any time by USPTA pros committee.Ratings entered by players on their EastTexasTennis.com account are not always current.

Team Registration:WWW.EastTexasTennis.com will be used for all USPTA team registrations. All players should login to www.EastTexasTennis.com and create a free account. When you fill out your free account informationPLEASE be sure and fill out all information requested so we can contact you with schedule changes and league updates. All players must pay the $20 player fee during registration with a credit or debit card. When you register please be sure and write down your user ID and password. Duplicate accounts can cause problems with team scores so please don’t create two accounts. If you have forgotten your password please click the "email me my password" button so you do not end up with two accounts and not get credit for your matches played. After you register you should see your name on the team roster within a few hours.

To Captain a Team:If you will be captaining a team go to www.EastTexasTennis.com and once you create your account if you don't already have one click on “Create New Team” and follow the steps.If your home court facility is not found please email Jim at tennishollytree@gmail.com and we will add your facility before you can complete the team registration process. Most East Texas area clubs and schools should already be in the database.Always try various spellings and words such as THE Cascades and not just Cascades to find your home courts.Once you have created your team follow the steps below to “join” the team. Forming your team and selecting yourself as a captain does not register you to “play” on that team but only to captain it. If you’re going to be a player you will need to “join the team” after creating the team. If you are only captaining the team and not playing on the team you do not need to "join" the team after registering to be the captain.

To Join a Team:Go to www.EastTexasTennis.com and create a free account if you don't already have one. Click "email me my password" if you have an account but forgot your login information. Please do not create another account or your scores and matches will not be recorded properly. Please be sure and fill out all requested information so you can be contacted with league updates, schedules, scores, etc. Once you have created an account click on the red “Sign Up” button next to the division you would like to enter and select your captain’s name. Once you pay the $20 league fee you will be listed on the roster! There are no additional fees for the online registration. Follow these same steps if you would like to join another team at a different level of play. Refunds cannot be given for any reason but we will have the ability to move players from one team to another at no additional charge if necessary prior to theSeptember 9 player add deadline.

League Details:

League format will be two lines of doubles play each week – Line #1 worth 5 points and Line #2 worth 3 points for the win (captains must not only enter scores weekly but must also enter the points won)

Match starting times will be scheduled between 6:00 and 8:30 p.m / Facilities allowing several teams to play on a given night could have 8:30 match starting times which will follow the 6pm or 7pm matches.

Anyone with permission to reserve two lighted outdoor hard courts for the length of the season may form his/her own team.

Facilities are not required to provide “warm up courts” prior to the match start time.Please check with your home facility for any policies they might have on requirements for forming teams.

The length of each league season will be based on the number of teams entered / some levels may be divided into two flights and some may have a playoff

Teams may have a few matches scheduled on days other than “normal” day of play - this is due to scheduling and court conflicts not a team’s choice

Winning teams will advance to the USTPA Texas State Team Championships in Houston January 18-20, 2019.The Houston tournament will play matches both indoors and outdoors in 2019.

Players must play at least two regular season local league matches (and at least one playoff match if applicable) to advance to state championships. If a team is scheduled to play 9 or more matches then a player must play in at least (3) regular season matches + a playoff match if applicable in order to advance to the state championships. Defaults do not count as a match played.

All matches will be 2 out of 3 tie-break sets with a 10-point super tiebreak for split set matches

Players should play by their January 2018 rating or their current self rating if not in the published ratings. Appeals honored by the USTA prior to September 9, 2018 will apply for this league.

Home team is responsible for providing new balls for each home match.

For larger schedules mandatory rain make up dates will be listed. Please try to make up your rain outs as soon as possible.

Teams are not permitted to reschedule matches for any reason other than wet courts unless both teams agree to AND play the match PRIOR to the scheduled date.For no reason other than weather related issues should a match be postponed to be played at alaterdate unless rescheduled by or with the league coordinator.

Teams will receive 5 points for winning line #1 and 3 for line #2. If one line must be defaulted the defaulting team may choose which line it will be. It is out of courtesy that the defaulting team notify the opponents about the default but it is not mandatory.

Players are permitted to play on as many teams as desired but only one team per level. Playing on two teams is not a reason to call your opponent and try to reschedule a team match even if both matches happen to be scheduled for the same time. If a team defaults both lines in a given match the team will receive a -4 for their score.

All grievances should be emailed to coordinator within 24 hours. The local grievance committee will consist of (3) local USPTA pros. Please send emails to league coordinator within 24 hours of the issue.

All captains must have a minimum of 6 players registered by Tuesday, July 24. The league coordinator will have the ability to move players to other teams by request but no refunds will be given once a player has registered and paid online.Teams may continue to add players until September 9, 2018.
