DIVISIONS OFFERED

Schools with depth of at least 6 players hold an advantage and divisions are offered for Singles Seeds 1-6 and Doubles Seeds 1-3.  The best players from a school are seeded 1-5 will play at those seeds, the rest of the school's entrants will all play in the #6 division (example… Seeds 7, 15, and 22 would all play in the #6 division).  The best two doubles teams from a school are seeded 1-2 and will play at those seeds, the rest of the doubles teams will play in the #3 division (e.g. the fourth, fifth, and sixth best doubles teams from a school would all play in the #3 division).   An athlete can play in doubles and singles.  If you attend a co-ed school you may also enter mixed doubles as a third event.  The more players to enter, the more points your school can earn.

MIXED DOUBLES RULE

Each receiving team member must clearly take a position on opposite sides of the backcourt within 10 seconds of the score being called. Failure to do so is a delay of game.

Definition of legal serve: The serve must bounce in the middle or in the correct side of the court and must remain either in the middle or in the correct side of the court for the second bounce if it were to occur.

The boy must serve to the boy and the girl must serve to the girl. Any serve that is judged by the referee to be served to the incorrect player is a fault serve (same as a short serve).

Only the boy may return the boy’s serve; only the girl may return the girl’s serve. Returning serve out of turn is considered an encroachment and results in a point for the serving team.

NATIONALS TEAM SCORING

Medals are awarded for First, Second, Third, & Fourth in every division.  All singles brackets follow an Olympic format and can guarantee up to 3 matches per entrant.  All doubles brackets have a consolation bracket and guarantee 2 matches per team.  There are medals in consolation and every Olympic division.   

 

First, Second, and Third Place Team Trophies are awarded to each team finishing in the Top 3 in their division (Girls, Boys, and Co-ed).  These trophies are awarded in a ceremony at the conclusion of the National tournament around 5pm Sunday night.  All-American recipients are also recognized at the ceremony.
