Alternative-format events such as Tiebreak Tournaments, Fast4, and One-on-One Doubles offer players a chance to play competitively in one-day and abbreviated tournaments rather than giving up an entire weekend.
Alternative formats include torunament styles such as:
The four key rules in Fast4 are:
Play “let” serves that drop in
It’s no-ad tennis, as once a game reaches deuce, a “Power Point” decides the game
At 3-games all in a set, a short tiebreak is played (first to 5 points), and a Power Point determines the winner if the tiebreak reaches 4 points all
There are various types of adult tournaments for players of all types. Find out more below!
Adult/Senior Age Division Tournament Tennis offers men and women the opportunity to individually compete in sanctioned tennis tournaments in five year increments, for example; 30 through 90. Age division tournaments offer singles and doubles categories. Most guarantee players at least two matches in each division with a feed-in consolation.
NTRP (National Tennis Rating Program) tournaments offer players the ability to play tournaments at their appropriate NTRP rating level. Most USTA Florida tournaments offer all available NTRP levels from 2.5-5.0. These tournaments are grouped by level to provide the player with a competitive but comfortable opportunity to compete with others.
Includes the following divisions; father-son, father-daughter, mother-son, mother–daughter. Parent and child may enter if they are related; by blood, legal adoption, or current step relationship. A child may play with different parents in different tournaments or different divisions in a tournament. There is also a division with a minimum age restriction for parent.
The NTRP Nationals Championships are national adult tournaments that leverage the NTRP rating system as a way to create level-based competition at the 18 & over and 50 & over age groups. Each year, NTRP National Champions are crowned in men’s and women’s singles and doubles at the 3.0, 3.5, 4.0, 4.5 levels in both 18 & over and 50 & over age groups, as well as at the 5.0 level in the 18 & over division. Learn more below about how you can qualify for the 2020 NTRP National Championship.
