2016 Season Information
Tournament Membership Fee
each tournament will pay a $100 fee to be a part of the ATS for 2016.
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 2016 season is $25.00 which entitles the member to accumulate points in up to three (3) divisions: i.e. singles, doubles, and/or mixed doubles and any person joining will be issued an ID number and membership card.
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 )
The ATS Point System
The winner of an event earns 10 points. The runner-
NOTE: 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; however, this does not alter the ATS rules that, insofar as accumulating points, you may only accumulate points in one (1) singles division, one (1) doubles division and one (1) mixed doubles division selected by you at the time of your membership application to the ATS.
Any points you accumulate
during the season will be credited to the level you select on the ATS application. However, if you have to “play up” at a tournament because your selected level did not have sufficient entries, any points earned may be credited to your selected level. So, if you register as a B player but play an A division because of a lack of B entries, any points earned in the A event will be credited to your B level totals.
To be eligible
to earn a trophy in any division at the end of the season, you must have played in a MINIMUM of fifty percent (50%) of the tournaments played 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-
