SANCTIONING
 

USTA South Carolina runs two sanction periods: the regular sanction period, typically late summer for the following years’ tournaments and the late sanction period, which occurs each February for tournaments July 1-December 31 of that year.  Level 5 one-day tournaments for both juniors and adults can be applied for at any time throughout the year.

Benefits of sanctioning

Ease of registration for players

Use of online Tournament Data Manager (TDM) program, which processes entries and gives real-time web updates of draws & scores for participants
Players earn USTA SC Ranking Points
Online registration makes it easy for TD’s to handle the entry fees—direct deposit or check cut for one lump sum.
Sanctioned USTA SC Tournaments will abide by the Junior or Adult Regulations, which can be found below.
