2013 Tournament Information





Singles (draw of 192) with Feed-In Championship
Doubles (draw of 96)

• USTA National Championship Entry Regulations
The USTA Regulations now allow a player to enter more than one age division of a USTA National Championship. If you want to play the Nationals in Kalamazoo, but aren't sure if you'll be accepted, you may now enter up to two age divisions. In the past, players had to decide which division to enter at the time of entry and if they entered and didn't get into the older division, they were left playing no tournament at all.

When Tournament selection is done, players will be first selected for the 18's and then for the 16's division. If you are selected for the 18's Nationals in Kalamazoo, you will not be considered for selection into the younger age division you entered. If you are not selected for the 18's Nationals in Kalamazoo, you will only be considered for selection into the 16's division and you will only be eligible to be an alternate in the younger age division, but not in the older division. Additionally, a player may not enter one division in singles and a different division in doubles at sites where two divisions are held. This is an important thing to consider before entering - if you enter two divisions, are not accepted into the older division, you can be considered for the 16's and if not selected, you can be considered to be an alternate in the younger division only.
