2005 Spring League Information

See Spring League button at left for more information.


 In an effort to reduce self-rating abuses and to maintain the integrity of league tennis, the USTA and Southern Section have adopted an approval process for players with elite tennis backgrounds who are self-rating to enter a league program in 2005:

New USTA and Southern Regulation for 2005:

3.01D(2)  Players who do not have a computer rating on file in TennisLink shall self-rate in accordance with the National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) Guidelines and declare their self-rating on TennisLink when registering for a team.  Individuals who have had a national or section ranking; played college tennis; have taught tennis; or played professional tennis must also complete a player history form and submit to the state and receive approval from the state to participate at their self-rated level before participating in a match.  Failure to do so or omission of information regarding a player's tennis history will subject the player, the captain and/or others who condoned inaccurate self-rating to sanctions and disqualification.
