Event Schedule
National Showcase Tournament Series

TennisRecruiting.net is excited to work in conjunction with adidas adiplayer on a series of tournaments called National Showcases presented by adiplayer. These tournaments are USTA-sanctioned junior tournaments open to players from all sections. National Showcase tournaments are designed to give a broad range of players the chance to compete outside of their districts and sections - and these tournaments will count towards Tennis Recruiting rankings.

National Showcase tournaments are "open" tournaments. Entries for these tournaments will be open to all USTA players, regardless of residence. The bulk of these tournaments take place during the summer or on long holiday weekends to accommodate travel.

All events in National Showcase tournaments will count in Tennis Recruiting rankings. Note that these tournaments are not on the USTA national schedule - they are sanctioned by sections or districts, and so players competing from other sections will not earn USTA ranking points. But they will absolutely count at TennisRecruiting.net. Further, players who compete in these tournaments and win at least one singles match will become National Players for the purpose of determining event quality for other tournaments.

Tennis Recruiting has sought out well-respected tournament directors with a history of running strong, high-quality tournaments. These directors are interested in running open tournaments to meet a need in light of recent changes to the junior competition format. The goal of these National Showcase tournaments is to provide additional opportunities for players to compete in other parts of the country.

adidas adiplayer and Tennis Recruiting are excited to bring juniors more opportunities for tennis tournament play.

Here is the current schedule of National Showcase Tournaments. Additional tournaments are added to the schedule as their USTA sanctions are finalized.

We hope that you will consider playing in one of these tournaments. Lastly, here are some principles of these National Showcase tournaments:

  • All events in a National Showcase tournaments will count for Tennis Recruiting national rankings.
  • A player who competes in one of these events and has a win - in the main draw or a consolation event - will become a Tennis Recruiting National Player.
  • Entry into these events is open to all USTA players, regardless of residence.
  • Acceptance will start with the USTA National Rankings - followed by the USTA sectional and district rankings.

We have had a lot of positive feedback about these tournaments since we announced them in 2012 - and we look forward to many more such tournaments in the future.
