Special Announcement
USTA to Pause 2013 Junior Competition Changes
Share:   

The junior competition committee of the USTA has spent the last couple of years working on a plan for growth that focuses on noble causes such as trying to lower costs for competitors, lowering school absences and adhering to Wayne Bryan's "Don't get on a plane to play a tournament until you can win the tournaments you can drive to and don't get in a car until you can win the tournaments you can pedal to."

After hearing the tennis industry's reaction to the changes, the USTA agreed to have a series of meetings with a group of tennis industry insiders to discuss the situation.

After in person meetings in NY, Los Angeles, Carmel and now Chicago with the industry group, the USTA has decided to do the following:

  • Leave the 2013 changes alone and continue the same schedule as 2012
  • Conduct a series of Town Hall Listening Meetings between now and mid-March
  • Use the information gleaned from that Listening Tour to help determine refinements for the tournament schedule for 2014 and beyond

The joint announcement is available here.
