Junior Tournament Rule Changes

 There will be a few changes in the Junior Competition realm for 2012 as determined by the USTA SC Junior Competition Committee.
 
  • The Green (75%) low compression ball will be used for the 12 & Under age divisions for Rising Stars (SC L5) tournaments.
  • Rationale: With the 10’s Rising Stars players aging up from the 60’ court & orange balls, the change to a regulation court & ball can be too big of a jump for our Novice players.  The Green ball has less bounce and is 25% slower, but will allow players to experience success in the transition
  • The percentage of doubles points to be incorporated with the Singles points will increase from 15% to 25%
  • The change will be retroactive to 2011 tournaments and the new points totals will be reflected in the 2012 Standings
  • Rationale: Will encourage more doubles play locally and statewide.  Also puts SC in line with the ITF point structure of awarding 25% of total doubles points earned.
 
2012 USTA Southern Level 3 Tournament Format Change
 
Beginning January 1, 2012, all USTA Southern Level 3 tournaments will adhere to a set and consistent format.
