    Hey guys, are there any good tournaments held in NJ for a person(me) who just joined the USTA w/ no ranking whatsoever. How good are top 14 year olds? Thanks

    Well, its okay. I could still travel to one. We usually go there just for fun for trips, especially fishing. Any tournaments tho, for low levels? If you win, do you get points? (for age group)

    These are good ones that get an excellent turn-out in Princeton. Use Tennis Link and search for tournaments in "Middle States" or "New Jersey"


    Princeton Spring Classic:

    Enter your age group

    Princeton Junior Open:

    Enter your age group

    http://tennislink.usta.com/tournaments/TournamentHome/Tournament.aspx?T=53798

    Princeton Unranked Tournament

    Enter your age group - more local players so its less competitive than the previous Boys/Girls tournaments

    Thanks. I might join the locaL. Again, what do you think a rating for a pretty good/developed 14 year old would be. I want to know where I stand, yet I don't even know my own. :-(

    If you win a match in that USTA unranked tournament, you still get points right? Because USTA hosts it?
