The bottom line is that all national tournament selection will be based on sectional ranking. How many national tournaments there will be was not clear.
Thanks for posting.
You heard 2014, I heard 2013.
I HOPE IT IS 2014, AS AT THAT LEAST THAT WAY, THEY WILL HEAR A ROAR FROM US,
INSTEAD OF THIER QUIET, QUICK WAY OF PUSHING THINGS THROUGH.
THAT BEING SAID, THE PERSON WHO TOLD ME SAID IT WAS 2013.
BUT TENNISFAN2DAY SAID
Needless to say, wait until you hear what they have planned for the 2013 Regionals.
I would suggest you call your Sectional office and ask them about it.
The head of every Jr Sectional committee knows about this so if they say they don't then they are lying.
You heard vote was in March, I heard it already happened.
You heard there was pushback.
I heard there was TREMENDOUS PUSHBACK, but the USTA didn't care.
Sectional ranking - yes. As no one will be playing nationals, as it appears they are getting rid of most of them.
FOLKS, IF YOU HEAR ANYTHING FROM YOUR SECTION, PLEASE POST IT HERE.
