Ranking Regulations

1. A player must hold a valid USTA membership and be a South Carolina resident to receive a state ranking.

2. Matches using conventional scoring (which may include the use of tiebreak and No-Ad scoring system) or a third set tiebreak in lieu of a third set will be considered for rankings. If in the case of inclement weather, the referee authorizes 8-game Pro sets for doubles, these matches will be counted. Pro sets for singles are excluded.

3. Only those matches played in a given age category or against another player eligible in the same category in the current ranking year will be considered.

Player Responsibilities

2. NOTIFY the USTA National Membership Office at 1-800-990-USTA or email them at memberservices@usta.com. South Carolina’s records come directly from the National database. We will not have correct information until the change has been made in the National database first.

3. MEET the deadlines as announced in the USTA South Carolina magazine.
