The regular season standings for Colorado Junior Team Tennis are now final and are available on TennisLink. Please see below for the list of teams that are eligible to participate in the State Championships as a result of their performance over the course of this summer.

It is MANDATORY for each team to email Dan Lewis by noon tomorrow (Thursday, July 30) and provide notification if your team will be available to participate or not. All teams must meet the minimum requirements to participate.

Match times for the State Championships will be available no later than Wednesday, August 5 and a Junior League Alert! will be sent out once it is published.

I will be sending additional Junior League Alerts! as more information becomes available.

4 Player Minimum Rule
A team must have at least 4 eligible players available during playoffs to participate. All 3 lines of a team match will be scheduled to go on court at the same time. This is a new rule for 2015 and we are trusting facility coordinators and team captains that when they RSVP with 4 players, that they will actually have 4 players. This is very important for the integrity of these Championships.

Eligibility and Frequently Asked Questions
 
A team must have at least 4 eligible players available duringplayoffs to participate.
 
A player must have played in at least 2 unique team matches during the regular season to be eligible for participation.
 
A round robin format will be used in most divisions until the final rounds, which will be single elimination. Some divisions may have a different format, to be determined by the tournament director and tournament committee.
 
A team match format will be used for scoring. The team winning the majority of the 3 individual matches will be awarded 1 team point (Games won is not the determining criteria for State). The team with the most team points in each age group/level of play will advance to the single elimination final rounds.
