HOW & WHY IT STARTED 

The USA TENNIS TOUR started due to a need for a alternate tennis circuit below the professional tennis circuits.

The tour appeals to current and former professionals that want to play more events for more practice, more prize money, can’t qualify for events any longer and many other reasons. The tour also appeals to players that cannot qualify for pro events, due to not having ranking points, or access to a wildcard. With few opportunities to gain those points, some players are forced to sit out and watch. 

While there are individuals presenting a small amount of prize money events, there is not a nationwide standard circuit for these types of events below the level of the pros. This is where the USA TENNIS TOUR was born. 

The USATT is filling a whole in the market for these high performance and advanced tennis players to play prize money tennis, competitive tournaments and keep the dream alive. 

While many pro players within the Top 250 on the WTA/ATP are well off and successful financially, not the same can be said for players outside the Top 250, usually. 

Many of these players are merely breaking even, or just getting by. This provides the USA TENNIS TOUR the chance to appeal to these professional WTA/ATP/ITF players with prize money events and opportunities. 

The USA TENNIS TOUR also started to give top level juniors a chance to start playing some Open tournaments to get a taste of pro tennis and prepare them for their goals of pro, or college tennis. 

The USA TENNIS TOUR has a chance to draw players to events throughout the USA due to our high performance player structure. 

About the USA TENNIS TOUR – Why We Started 

TURNING PRO IS A PIPE DREAM 

Today, with how the ITF, WTA & ATP circuits are set up, the number of new players turning professional (that aren’t children of millionaires) is few and far between. It is difficult to start your journey on the tour, and even more difficult to sustain it. The opportunities are shrinking and the journey to go pro is getting more difficult and even more expensive. 

That is why we created the USA TENNIS TOUR. We are creating more opportunities for players to reach their dreams and potential.  

Giving players a place to earn prize money, play competitive matches, and prepare and work towards their goal has been inexistent before, but now the USA TENNIS TOUR is here to push the next field of pros to their dreams.  

TURKEY HUNTING HAS GOTTEN HARDER

Players compete on the ITF circuit as a stepping stone to the WTA & ATP tour. 

Players travel thousands of miles to these tournaments at their chance to earn a handful of pro points to increase their ranking to possibly gain entry or wildcard to pro events. These players train year round and spend hundreds of thousands of dollars yearly to get their chance at these points. 

The journey is now more difficult as players alternate lists usually reach 100-200 players! It’s harder to get into the events, and if they get in, losing early will gain them only a few pro points, and prize money is not adequate. Many of the pros we have talked to and consulted with in building this tour, voice the difficulties of low prize money, high costs, and a international circuit with scheduling issues & changes needed. 

While tournament fees are low for ITF players, that doesn’t help too much with costs such as hotel, travel, coaching, training, equipment, and more. 

These players are fueling local economies and the circuit, with only one goal in mind, to play professional tennis for a living. 

We at the USATT want to support those players and offer them opportunities and s circuit to work towards their goals. 

BRIDGING THE GAP

Out of the top 5,000 men & women who are professional tennis players only approx 2,000 have ATP/WTA points. 

The rest are training and planning to go on the journey on the ITF or Challenger Tour and most likely train at tennis academies around the world.

The numbers are even bigger if you consider top juniors, collegiate players, advanced high performance players, and even former pros or failed pros. The USATT estimates there are 25,000 men and 25,000 women semipro and professional players that play at a high level and would be the target market for the circuit. 

This list includes top USTA rankings, UTR ratings, World Tennis Number, ITF rankings, college D1-3 and NAIA players, high level club players, and others. 

This top group includes younger top players who retired from the circuit due to money issues, injury or career decisions. 

No matter what the exact number, the top 10,000- 25,000 professional men and women is a great target to get in tournaments and members of the USATT.

WTA/ATP TOURS QUEST FOR THE BEST 

The ATP/WTA really wants only the top 5% of ranked players for Grand Slam Events main draw and qualifying. 

The next 5% they want to play challengers & ITF events. 

That means only about 500 – 1,000 players are actively playing events on a consistent basis. ATP/WTA players ranked even 800-2,000 have strong difficulty qualifying for tournaments and have little to no chance of getting to ATP/WTA 500’s, 1000’s and especially the grand slams. 

Even the UTR Pro Series is mostly focused on a small number of top players maybe 1,000 maximum or 10%. Players must have a UTR of 10.0 or be ranked on the WTA/ATP tours. 

This is why we started the USA TENNIS TOUR, To give players that don’t have pro points or a pro UTR the ability to play and earn prize money at events, while building their game. 

The events are more well funded for the players, but the difficulty of gaining entry is equal, and the same players are gaining opportunities week in week out, while other players don’t have the opportunity, due to not being accepted by the tournament due the qualifications & requirements. This created opportunities for those that already have many, and leaves out a segment of the tennis world that already is underserved. 

Advantage, USA TENNIS TOUR 

This leaves 80% or (8,000 23,000 +-) top professional players that the USA Tennis Tour can really target and create some real playing opportunities and prize money and other benefits for.

USA PLAYERS 

Some of these top players will play on the USA Tennis Tour no doubt because they live or have their training  base or travel to the USA.

Extended Target Market 

In addition, there is the top college players, failed (tennis or academics) college players,  juniors and retired top adults/alumni of colleges. This group could be 50,000+ or even 100,000+ players depending on the age groups counted. Counting community colleges and small universities, the number is most likely over 100,000. 

There is also competitive recreational tennis players of 1 million + just in USA. This would include 4.0, 4.5 & 5.0+ USTA players, UTR 6+, and advanced club players. 

High School Players 

Each and every year approximately 300,000 players play on High School Tennis Teams. 

These players will be the next slew of college athletes ranging from D1-3 and NAIA schools. These players can compete on the USATT to prepare and improve their game to get ready for college competition. 

Players Equal Revenue 

Many of these players could play regularly on the USA Tennis Tour and these entry fees will produce key revenue.

WHAT IS THE USA TENNIS TOUR?

The USA TENNIS TOUR is a tennis organization with the mission to create more opportunities for tennis players to play events at a high performance level. Semiprofessional, professional & advanced tennis players are limited in the opportunities to play events and to be a part of a circuit due to the difficulty to enter tournaments in order to accumulate professional ranking points. Out of the top 10,000 players in the world, only about 2,000 of them have professional ranking points. This gap in opportunities is what birthed the USA TENNIS TOUR, offering a competitive circuit for players to compete for prize money and play the game at their level, with traditional tennis rules and scoring. The USA TENNIS TOUR Pro Circuit & SemiPro Tour is a pathway to the pros, players can work on their craft and monetize their game on the circuit to prepare for big events and professional tournaments such as Davis Cup, the ATP & WTA Tours & the ITF Circuit. The USATT will present year round nation and world wide tournaments offering prize money and USATT ranking points.
