    Update from Southern...

    This was posted on Southern's site yesterday. If you notice it lists updates (links) to AR, GA, KY, NC and TN. http://www.southern.usta.com/News/update_on_suspension_of_play_and_event_changes_-_may_26_2020/ It's interesting AND obvious that we all pretty much knew the 31 May would "not" slip...

    The "31 May" line in the sand...

    And the lingering question, which schmke covered pretty well in a response, is what will they do about ratings for the folks that have only played 3 maybe four matches and may or may not finish their local season. There's no "benchmark" to figure into the equation but as schmke suggested they...

    Another Sectionals cancelled...

    Due to the C-19, Southern cancelled Sectionals. http://www.southern.usta.com/Adults/leagues/section_championships_sites/ Our state just sent out a survey asking about local play and if comfortable playing at State. My main question is this...what about year end ratings? If only local Spring...

    The "31 May" line in the sand...

    It's been exactly a month since the USTA National office put out the 31 May suspension. Has anyone heard from any "officials", whether it be local, state or Sectional, if they (USTA National) plans to (a) keep the 31 May date, (b) slide it to the right any, (c) keep the 31 May date AND...

    Is your State (District)/Section continuing play or "other"

    Any further updates on your Local/State/Sectional play? Of course it's the Domino Effect...State and Sectionals are waiting to hear from Governor's office if CDC and DHEC allows the "gatherings" rule to be loosened for not only Local play but to have State tourney late in the Summer. Of course...

    Is your State (District)/Section continuing play or "other"

    There have been threads recently asking if courts are open, if people are playing during this time and about USTA sending surveys out asking about returning to play. Just wanted to see if your State and/or Section have announced they will resume play AND have both the State and Sectional...

    Suggestion we could present to USTA

    ...and if the USTA will base their Roll Out "options" based on the Phase Guidelines and when each state opens up accordingly.

    Suggestion we could present to USTA

    Would like to see if they (Johns Hopkins, CDC, etc) will have maps to show which “Phase”each state and county are in...

    "Rollout" via Section...??

    I sent a note to my Sectional Coordinator. In it I asked about it being possible that the USTA "roll out" the resumption of play by Section where certain States would be able to get back on the court AFTER The Stay at Home is lifted AND people are allowed to play at their respective courts. In...

    Suggestion we could present to USTA

    I'm going to send an email to my Sectional Coordinator to ask for his input. I'm sure this subject has crossed their minds. Maybe you folks can do the same (in a tactful way of course). :)

    Suggestion we could present to USTA

    Good morning fellow players/"Board Members". I've been holding onto this thought for half a day now and looking at the last post about the disappointment that LOBALOT shared about his kid (and plenty others) not being able to play the Sectional Tournaments. That really hit home for me...not...

    Don't shoot the messenger, ugh...New revised suspension dates

    Good point J...here's a thought, it's almost like College Football. Have Nationals next March in the "warm spots" of the Nation for the 2020 season?? Even though year end ratings won't be affected by them

    Don't shoot the messenger, ugh...New revised suspension dates
