Attention Tournament Directors!

Update for 2010

Dear Florida Junior Tournament Directors,

USTA Florida sincerely appreciate your hard work in promoting our great sport in the state of Florida. USTA Florida tournaments provide a great forum for players of all levels to test their skills, progress up the tennis ladder and offers a great opportunity for meeting other players. USTA Florida want these events to be first rate and quality run.

These are the continuing programs and changes for 2010: 

  1. The tournament evaluations will continue using the one question: “The likelihood you would recommend this tournament to a friend or fellow player?” USTA Florida is evaluating the players’ tournament experience to maintain a consistent high quality amongst USTA Florida sanctioned tournaments across the state. 
  2. Super Series doubles deadline will be Thursday at 5PM so the tournament director can post the doubles and singles draws Friday morning to create a better managed tournament. The player will enter directly with the tournament site by email and/or phone. 
  3. USTA Florida Local junior tournaments will increase the points awarded for match wins to double the 2009 points. 
  4. Junior Team Tennis Sectional tournaments will award ranking points in the Advanced and Intermediate divisions for matches won by the individual players. 
  5. Workshops for Junior Designated and Sectional Directors and staff will be scheduled during 2010 by quarter.

The USTA Florida Junior Council feel this extensive effort will essentially help your tournaments and ultimately grow our great game.

Thanks again for all your help and effort.

Yours truly,

Andy Gladstone
