2014 Junior Competition Committee
Joanne Wallen, Chair email@example.com
Each year, the USTA Kentucky Junior Council will evaluate the appropriate levels of the events considered for Kentucky Junior Standings and Rankings.
If you accumulate 10 suspension points during a 12 month period, you shall be suspended from USTA Southern Section sanctioned events for 3 months and also from the next Southern Championship. When a player has accumulated 6 or more points a letter is sent to the player informing him/her of being in jeopardy of suspension. We (KY) look at these points when determining our Fed/Davis Cup teams. Also, if a player is suspended, they shall be ineligible for selection to USTA Southern Section team events, Zonals, Competitive Training Centers and Training Camps for 12 months following the suspension. So you see, Southerns is serious about behavior, entering two tournaments, etc.
This information follows the USTA National Rules found in Friend At Court.
Friend at Court. This rule will apply to any sanctioned USTA event.
p 122 Regulation IV.A.2
Now states "The referee may penalize a player who is on site for lateness if a court is available and the player has failed to check in at the tournament desk by the scheduled match time."
p129 FAC Comment IV.D.1
"If five matches are scheduled at 10:00 a.m. but only one court is available, the Referee should call all matches shortly before 10:00 a.m. and should start the lateness clock on all players who have not checked in by 10:00 a.m. When more matches are scheduled that there are courts available, the Referee may put the matches out in any order. A player does not escape the lateness penalty because the player's match was one of the last matches to be put on the court. If one of the several matches scheduled at the same time is put out early and when the scheduled time arrives there is no available court, the lateness clock does not start until another court becomes available."
