Important Changes for 2018 Spring season:
The JNTRP ratings will be used for the 12U - 18U players. Players that have 4 matches in JTT or tournaments will have generated a rating. Players with no rating will be required to self rate.
Any player with a JNTRP rating of 2.8 and above cannot play beginner. The 10U division will not require use of ratings, thus players witha a 1-100 Southern Standing in the 10's as of the end of July 2017 and who are playing in the 10's must play Advanced. If a 10U player has played up in the 12's and has a JNTRP rating of 3.5 or above the player must play Advanced. 10U players with more than 170 points on the posted Geogia standing list as of the end of July 2017 may not play at the beginner level. Point totals shall include both singles and doubles division from which points were acquired. Points earned due to defaults will not be considerwd and may be deducted if noted in writing to the State League Coordinator.
