SANCTION: The Cornhusker State Games Adult Tennis event is sanctioned by the USTA. USTA membership card can be purchased at www.usta.com.
*The adult tournament and junior 10 and Under Orange and Green divisions will be sanctioned USTA events.  Junior Boys & Girls 12-18 events are not USTA sanctioned tournaments and thus do not receive ranking points.

COMPETITION FORMAT & RULES:

USTA rules will apply.

All players must have a valid USTA membership good through at least July 2023.

NOTE:  Players may play in multiple divisions.  However, all players must use the same rating for each division.  Example:  If playing 3.5 for singles, the player must play 3.5 for doubles.  This will help reduce waiting times for all players.

NTRP rating classification guidelines will apply.

Matches are 2 of 3 sets with a 10-point match tiebreak in lue of a third set. It is the referee’s discretion to switch to alternate scoring from “regular” scoring in all matches. The change may be necessary to complete the tournament after inclement weather or other factors causing the tournament to fall behind its published schedule.

Juniors may enter only one age division and are not allowed to enter the adult draw except in the open events.

Juniors and adults may enter both singles and doubles.

Age as of July 31, 2023. Example: If a player turns 19 anytime in July, they are not eligible to play in the U18 division.

The tournament director reserves the right to combine events.

MATCH TIMES & DRAWS: Match times and draws will be available at CornhuskerStateGames.com and emailed out to participants the week of competition. Events may be rescheduled after the entry deadline to improve the flow of the tournament. Participants will be notified of any changes. Please DO NOT call the Cornhusker State Games office for this information.

TOURNAMENT NOTES:
