2019 Season Information


ATS RULES AND GUIDELINES


ATS divisions are divided by age, gender and skill level. These are to be listed on your membership application. A member is qualified to score points in any division for which she/he is eligible by age, gender and skill level. You will not declare at the beginning of the season the divisions in which you desire to score points. So long as you meet a division's requirements, you are eligible to score points in that division.

However, each ATS tournament has its own rules as to how many events you may enter. Any restrictions as to the number of events or the number of specific divisions you may enter are up to the discretion of each individual tournament director.  


Tournament Membership Fee  each tournament will pay a $100 fee to be a part of the ATS for 2018.
 
Discounts: Most all of the ATS Tournaments offer entry discounts into their tournaments up to $5.00 if you are an ATS member.

ATS Membership Fee  for the 2019 season is $25.00.

A non-playing membership for persons who want to support the ATS is $15.00.

ATS Rankings Classification: Select the NTRP (National Tennis Rating Program) level that you will be competing in this season.


(A) division ( 4.0 & above )

(B) division  ( 3.0 & 3.5 )

(C) division  (2.5  & below )

Each individual ATS tournament sets its own rules regarding entries.  Whether you may enter more than one singles event or more than one doubles event is up to each tournament director in his or her discretion.

You must be an ATS member at the time a tournament is played in order for points scored in that tournament to count toward the season-long total. You may join anytime during the season, but only after you join will any ATS points earned be counted.


The ATS Point System…. The winner of an event earns 10 points.  The runner-up of an event earns 7 points.  The two semi-finalists who did not advance to the finals earn 5 points each.  The four quarterfinalists who did not advance to the semi-finals earn 3 points each. All other entrants in an event earn one (1) point.  Points are increased  in the double points tournament or you choose to play tournaments outside of your selected geographic division.

To be eligible to earn a season-ending trophy , you must play a minimum of fifty percent (50%) of the tournaments held during the season. (If an odd number of tournaments are played, i.e., 7 for example, half would be 3.5 and the minimum would be rounded up; so, the number of tournaments you would need to play would be 4). You must be an ATS member at the time a tournament is played in order for points scored in that tournament to count toward THE SEASON-long total. You may join the ATS at anytime during the season, but you cannot score points until you become a member.

Northern/Southern divisions: There are four tournaments in each geographic division. We try to encourage members to travel away from their geographic areas and play tournaments that are farther away. For any tournament you play outside your Division, you will receive two (2) extra points in addition to other points you earn in that tournament.

RULE CHANGE PLANS:

 For 2019, players in ATS tournaments will be able to score points in any division for which the player is qualified by age, gender and skill level (A, B or C). You will not need to declare at the beginning of the season which divisions to wish to score points in.  So long as you meet the division's age, gender and skill level requirements, you can score points in that division.


However, each tournament has its own rules about the maximum number of events you may participate in as well as the number of divisions (i.e., only one singles, one doubles, etc.).. Those restrictions are up to the individual tournament directors.


We will clarify this rule change further if need be. If you have any specific questions, you may send them to:


 Jim Vanover
vanoversj@suddenlink.net.

Because the high school tennis season does not finish this year until the end of May,
the ATS season will begin in June.

The Appalachian Tennis Series  circuit began in the spring of 2014. It is a central hub organized to promote and provide information for summer tennis tournaments in the Appalachian region that begins in early June and extends though October of each year. The group is limited to persons who join the ATS as a member.

It is a challenging experience that gives people all ages a chance to play the game as well as to stay in good physical condition. To participate, you will travel from tournament to tournament and thus receive points accordingly as to how far you advance in each tournament. You will be playing against some of the best players in KY and surrounding states.
