Texas Junior Tennis sign now

To the Governing Board of the Texas Tennis Association / USTA Texas Section

The following members in good standing of the United States Tennis Association and other interested parties (Coaches, Parent, and other family members) oppose the Texas Tennis Associations (TTA) rescission of the rule allowing extensions for inclement weather or weather related cancellation of ZAT and Championship Major Zone tournaments. The USTA Texas Section (the Texas Section) Junior Competition Regulations state a player must earn 64 points within the last six consecutive months with the players best four tournaments in that six month period counted toward point accumulation. Given the extreme nature of weather in Texas, we feel that not granting extensions for cancellations due to inclement weather is unfair, unreasonable, discriminatory, and contrary to TTAs own rule which states in relevant part that the purpose of the regulations are designed to provide recognition of more players; and to address as much as possible the concerns for school attendance and financial expenditure in pursuit of the sport. Under the current rules, players, if they enter a tournament, are forced to travel to the tournament even if it is clear that the tournament will not be completed due to weather conditions, or face point penalties for withdrawing from the tournament. This neither encourages junior development of tennis nor takes into account the tremendous financial expenditures and hardships placed on tennis families by these rules.

By this Petition, we the undersigned hereby request that the Texas Tennis Association IMMEDIATELY AND RETROACTIVELY reinstate extensions for junior players for tournaments cancelled due to inclement weather.
