Play Southern Fast4 Championships

May 21, 2018 04:42 PM

USTA Southern is hosting four championships in an exciting, new format: Fast4! There will be two championships on hard courts and two on clay courts, both including 18 & Over and 50 & Over players. 

There is a limited draw size (first 8 players or first 8 doubles teams in each NTRP division), so sign up today! Draw size may be expanded to 16 depending on interest and court availability.

Lunch will be provided on Saturday! Cost is $25 for one event and $50 for two events at the same tournament. Doubles are same gender. Top finishers in each NTRP level will advance to the 2019 National NTRP Championships. Players must have a computer rating on file to participate.

Minimum of three matches guaranteed for all levels with the goal of four matches.

The shortened format for each set offers a “fast” alternative to tennis, with four points, four games, and five rules:

  1. No-ad scoring is used
  2. Service lets are played
  3. Tie-breaks are played at three games all
  4. The first to four games wins the set
  5. Best 2-out-of-3 Fast4 sets will be used with Match Tiebreak in lieu of 3rd Fast 4 Set
