Oracle ITA Summer Circuit - Powered by UTR


June 22 - July 29, 2019
Hosted by 50+ College Campuses

The Oracle ITA Summer Circuit Powered by UTR provides a great opportunity to strengthen your Universal Tennis Rating and get some competitive match play during the summer.

The circuit was created to provide incoming freshman and collegiate players the chance to compete in the summer months. However, due to NCAA compliance purposes, the events are categorized as “open”, which means anyone — including high-level juniors and adults — is eligible to compete in these events as long as he/she is a current ITA member.

The ITA Summer Circuit is currently made up of 50+ events over six consecutive weekends, beginning in mid-June and continuing through the last weekend in July.

Schedule

ITA Summer Playing Membership


All participants must purchase a 2019 ITA Summer Playing Membership ($30) in order to compete in a Summer Circuit event. Participants can only purchase an ITA membership through the ITA website. After purchasing an ITA membership, participants will receive a confirmation email that provides them with their 2019 ITA Member ID number. This ITA Member ID number will be needed to register for each Summer Circuit tournament.

Tournament Registration & Wait Lists

All Summer Circuit events are open to all players on a first-come, first-serve basis – there is no selection process for entry into an event. Entry Fees are $65 (plus processing fees) and include both singles and doubles. Each tournament director will have the ability to limit the number of registrants he/she will accept into the tournament by setting a maximum draw size capacity. Once a draw (men’s or women’s) is at capacity, the UTR tournament management platform will either add players to a wait list or direct players to email the tournament director to be added to the wait list. Alternates/wait-listed players may be moved into the competitor field up until the time draws have been published. Once draws have been published, any withdrawals or no-shows should result in a walkover. No on-site alternates will be allowed.

Refund Policy

A full refund of $65 will be issued directly back to the credit card used to pay for the entry for players that withdraw from a Summer Circuit event up to 10 days prior to the start of the event. If a player withdraws within 10 days of the start of the event, he/she forfeits their entry fee.

Doubles Registration


Doubles sign up and pairing is a part of the online registration process. Players participating in singles should register for the draws titled either Men’s Singles (includes Doubles) or Women’s Singles (includes Doubles). Doubles Only players should register for the draws titled either Men’s Doubles Only or Women’s Doubles Only. Doubles Only players pay the same entry fee, $65 per player. Players who know who their partner will be can list their partner’s name. Players who are in need of a partner can select the option “need partner.” Players will be able to see fellow competitors on the UTR Events platform competitor list if they would like to reach out to potential partners.

Draws & Seeding

In an effort with UTR to promote level-based play and decrease the number of non-competitive matches in the circuit, once registration is complete, competitor fields will be divided into draws no larger than 32 participants and based on player UTRs. Tournament directors will seed 25% of each draw based on player UTRs.

Consolation


All events will provide first match loser consolation (FMLC) in all singles draws. All doubles draws are single elimination with no consolation matches unless the tournament director specifies otherwise.

Scoring Format


The scoring format for singles will be 2 out of 3 sets with a 10-point match tiebreak in lieu of a 3rd set using no-ad scoring. Doubles will play an 8-game pro-set using no-ad scoring with a 7-point tiebreak held at 7-all. Men’s draws will use the Division I collegiate no-let rule.

ITA Summer Circuit Points Race


The ITA office will track points and post a “points race standings” each week on the ITA website. At the conclusion of the circuit, the top 5 men and the top 5 women will receive automatic entry into the ITA National Summer Championships as well as a $600 travel reimbursement to be used towards the expense of attending the ITA National Summer Championships at Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas.
