2014 USTA Adult 40 & Over League District Championship Wildcard and Advancement Information

posted Jul 18, 2014, 2:35 PM by Katie Ware   [ updated Jul 21, 2014, 8:58 AM by IdTennis Leagues ]

2014 LEAGUE DISTRICT CHAMPIONSHIP ADVANCEMENT POLICY

Number of teams advancing at the same NTRP per area for USTA Adult 40 & Over:
2-6 = 1 team
7-12 = 2 teams
13-18 = 3 teams
19+ = 4 teams

Open berths at Districts may be filled with a Wild Card.  The Adult Recreation and Competition Committee (ARCC) will decide if a wild card is needed at any given level, and a weighted lottery will be used to select the area that will receive the wild card.  Each area will receive as many lottery entries as there are teams in that area at that level.  The lottery will take place after all of the areas have released their local league schedules.  Areas must have at least four teams at a level to be eligible for a wild card.

 

NOTE: The Weighted Lottery drawing was held on July 16, 2014.  The winner of the Women’s 4.0 level weighted lottery wildcard is Idaho Falls. Weighted Lottery Wildcard Drawing Video.

2014 USTA ADULT 40 & OVER LEAGUE DISTRICT CHAMPIONSHIP FORMAT

Men’s 3.0: Since there is only one local league at this level, the winning team of that flight automatically qualifies for the Section Championships. 


Women’s 3.0: The number of automatic bids is three with a wildcard from the Treasure Valley area for a total of four teams.  The championship format is a single round robin with each team playing three matches.


Men’s 3.5: The number of automatic bids is three with a wildcard from the Treasure Valley area for a total of four teams.  The championship format is a single round robin with each team playing three matches.


Women’s 3.5: The number of automatic bids is six.  The championship format is one round robin with each team playing five matches.

 

Men’s 4.0: The number of automatic bids is four.  The championship format is a single round robin with each team playing three matches. 


Women’s 4.0: The number of automatic bids is three with a wildcard from the Idaho Falls area for a total of four teams.  The championship format is a single round robin with each team playing three matches.


Men’s 4.5+: Since there is only one local league at this level, the winning team of that flight automatically qualifies for the Section Championships. 


Women’s 4.5+: The number of automatic bids is two.  The championship format is a triple round robin with each team playing three matches. 

 

This is the expected schedule for the USTA Adult 40 & Over District Championships if all teams were to accept advancement.  The schedule could change depending on teams declining advancement and thus changing the championship format so all teams should still make themselves available all day Friday, Saturday and Sunday in case this situation occurs. The final District Championship schedule will be released on August 6.

Junior Tennis Question of the Day

posted Jul 16, 2014, 2:40 PM by Matt Locke
