Texas State Jr. Gran Prix Championships–Sept. 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 (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.

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. The only way to enter the tournaments is at www.EastTexasTennis.topdoglive.com.If you have any questions please contact any of the tournament director listed on the tournament home page.

Last update: 10/22/17

All USPTA League make ups will be rescheduled (in the order they were rained out) beginning on the first week following the regular league schedule. Make ups will be scheduled for 7pm on the day the team played the majority of their matches. Teams may agree to play on an earlier date but not a later date. All matches must be completed by December 20. If necessary the league coordinator will adjust the schedules manually for make ups that would need to extend beyond that date. Some teams could have two matches rescheduled during the same week if make ups begin to accumulate.

Last update: 10/21/18

Any matches canceled during the USPTA League season due to weather must be made up at 7pm first week following the end of the regular season play on the same day the team played the majority of their scheduled matches. If a make up falls on a holiday or special events date it may be scheduled on a different day by the league coordinator. It is the home team's responsibility to secure the courts. Matches should be made up in the order they were rained out on the schedule. If one team has two rain outs and their opponent has one then there is alwasys a chance the team with one rain out will not play on the first available date if they had the 2nd rain out with the other team. Please communicate with your opponent to confirm rain out dates. The league coordinator will automatically change the dates of matches not played so the schedule will reflect the make up dates at least 2 weeks in advance. Teams are more than welcome to agree to an earlier date but the make ups can never be delayed for any reason other than weather in which case it would automatically be moved to the end of the rain out schedule. It is the captains responsibility to make sure rain outs are played immediately following the end of the season. Matches cannot be "postponed" beyond the rain out make up date for any reason other than weather. Captains should show the rescheduled date on the schedule (if not already done for you) as soon as the season is over and all make up dates are confirmed with opponents.

If two teams tie to win their flight whichever team accumulted the most points considering all the head to head matches played between the two tied teams will be d the winner. If the two teams have the same number of points then the team with the least percentage of total matches lost in all matches actually played will be the winner. After matches will be least percentage of sets lost then games lost. Only matches, sets and games actually played will be considered. Defaults will not go into the calculation.

The same procedure will be used for a three or four way tie.
