Learn about how we manage USATT tournaments, what the events are all about and what makes us different!
USATT is committed to running professional events, its who we are.
USATT believes tennis is a Gentlemen’s Game. We implement professional standards at all of our events.
We believe players train too hard, spend way too much money and time on their game to make a mockery of the events and what they stand for.
All of our tournaments start with a organized website to learn about the event and register. Tournament organizers communicate and organize with players to assure they have all the info about the tournament before they show up on site. Each tournament is run with the same standards, giving the players something to get used to, well run, professional events.
No match is official without a USATT official starting the match with explaining the rules and scoring, asking if they have any questions, performing the coin toss, and determining sides. A photo is also taken of players before the match.
USATT also conducts pre tournament and match conferences and interviews, post match interviews, and produces event content.
Players call their own lines and score, unless umpires are on court. Players can call referee or umpire to court, given a issue.
