To advance to USTA Florida’s Tri-Level Tournament, you can’t be a Self-Rated player (“S” rating type). Further clarification: If a computer “C” rated player gets moved up at year-end, he/she would be eligible to play at the championship at their 2018 NTRP rating. If a self “S” rated player gets moved up at year-end to a “C” rating type, then the player must play at the championship at the higher NTRP level.
- Final determination of a player’s eligibility for the National Invitational will be made by Tom Fey, Tournament Director for the Tri-Level Invitational in Indian Wells.
