2005 Southern DE League Regulations

I. REGISTRATION PROCEDURES

A. All players must be registered in the USA League Adult, Senior or Super Senior programs before playing his or her first match. Players must register using TennisLink, which can be accessed by logging on to the Delaware District web site. TennisLink will check eligibility by age, gender, current USTA membership and current NTRP computer rating. A player may take out or renew a membership directly with the USTA when registering for a league. Players without a rating will be asked to self-rate themselves when they register.

A.1.  Players may take out or renew a membership, or register for a league by logging on to the Middle States web site. Players can no longer register for a league by phone.

Step #1. Log on to "www.delaware.usta.com".

Step #2. The Delaware District home page will be shown. Click on "TennisLink" on the left margin.

Step #3. The "TennisLink" page will be shown. From the menu at the right make the appropriate choice (Register for a team; Join the USTA; Renew your membership).
Players not having a current NTRP rating will be prompted to self-rate themselves.

A.2. Players may also take out or renew a USTA membership by phoning 1-800-990-8782 and following the verbal instructions. Note: A new or renewed USTA membership will be effective immediately if application is made online using TennisLink, or by phone during office hours. Applications made by phone after 5:00pm Eastern time on weekdays or on weekends when the USTA office is closed will be delayed until the next working day.
                        .    
B. The 2005 registration fee for all Delaware District USA League Tennis players registering on TennisLink will be $25.00 per player per team. The fee includes a “Delaware District League Administration Fee” to be used by the District to cover league expenses.

C. Tuesday, March 15, 2005 is the initial sign-up deadline for team registration in the Delaware District for a minimum of eight (8) players to form a Men’s or Women’s Adult League team, and for a minimum of six (6) players to form a Men’s or Women’s 5.0, Senior or Super Senior League team.

Team captains who fail to have the minimum number of players registered by that date will be omitted from the District league schedule for play. Consult with your League Coordinator with any questions or problems concerning the deadline.

D. USTA/MS permits additions to the roster until Friday, July 1, 2005 for Adult League play and until Monday, August 1, 2005 for Senior and Super Senior League play.  No registration will be allowed after those dates.

II. USTA MEMBERSHIP AND LEAGUE REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS

A. All team members must be members in good standing of the USTA (UNITED STATES TENNIS ASSOCIATION) through July 2005 for Adult League players, and August 2005 for Senior and Super Senior League players, and have a valid NTRP rating on record. (See Section III.)

B.
Delaware District players may play on more than one team within the Delaware District as long as they are at different age divisions (Adult, Senior and Super Senior) or at different league levels. A player can play at his/her own level and no more than one level above. For example, a 3.0 player may play on a 3.0 Adult League team and on a 3.5 Adult League team, but not a 4.0 team. Such players must be properly registered on both teams (including paying two registration fees), must notify team captains that they are playing on more than one team, and must follow the guidelines given below in the event more than one team advances to Local or Sectional championships. Any scheduling conflicts as a result of playing on more than one team, including District championships, are the individual player’s responsibility.
          
C. Delaware District players, Adult, Senior and Super Senior Leagues, are permitted to play on teams in another District during the same league season (as defined by league starting and ending dates). Delaware District teams may include players from other districts. Entire teams playing in another district may not play together in the Delaware District. Only four (4) such team members may play together on a Delaware District team. Such players must be properly registered on both teams (including paying two registration fees), must notify team captains that they are playing in more than one district, and must follow the guidelines given below in the event more than one team advances to Local or Sectional championships. Any scheduling conflicts as a result of playing in more than one District are the individual player’s responsibility.

Note: It is the team captain and each player's responsibility to ensure all player qualifications of Sections I and II are met. If any violations of the above occur, the District reserves the right to change or adjust any affected league play results or standings accordingly. 


III. NTRP RATING SYSTEM

Background
Dynamic NTRP will be used in all Delaware District USA Adult and Senior leagues. Dynamic NTRP will update player ratings at regular intervals over the course of a season.

Players will register through TennisLink. If they have a valid computer rating on file in the database it will confirm their eligibility for the team. If they have no rating on file the player will be required to declare a self-rating before completing the registration. After each match, the captain will enter the scores online in TennisLink. These results will be included in the dynamic NTRP calculations.

Dynamic ratings are not disclosed publicly, neither to the player concerned, to any other league player, nor to the administrator below the section level. Final year-end ratings will continue to be published annually and displayed on the Middle State Section’s web site.

PLAYERS WILL NOT BE REQUIRED TO GO ON-COURT TO RECEIVE A VISUAL RATING. Verification clinics will no longer be held in the Delaware District, nor will verifiers monitor players participating in Local or Sectional championships. There will be a limited number of verifiers at National championship events to ensure rating accuracy in same-partner situations and out-of-contention teams.

B. Disqualification
Dynamic NTRP ratings will be run daily to determine if any players are “clearly above level”. Players will be disqualified if they achieve the currently established “clearly above level” status three times based on all matches reported during the championship league year. This includes all match play in Adult and Senior divisions in all leagues, including local, sectional and national championships. Results of Super Senior and Mixed Doubles league matches do not affect NTRP ratings as they are not included in the calculation.

Responsibility for monitoring dynamic ratings lies with Sally Baird, Middle States Director of Competitive Tennis. When a "third strike" situation arises, the Director will notify (a) the affected player by telephone, e-mail or voicemail message; (b) the player’s Team Captain, using the Captain’s e-mail address as reported on TennisLink; and (c) the relevant Area and Local League Coordinator. Notification is made within one business day of determination that a third strike has been received. Hard copy will be mailed to player’s address as it appears on the team roster. Notice occurs only after three strikes are accumulated. With notification of disqualification, the player will be provided with a printout of all matches and the NTRP level generated for each match. The team captain of the disqualified player will have seven (7) days to appeal the disqualification. Appeals must be submitted in writing to Sally Baird, Middle States Director of Competitive Tennis (See section XIII for address).

C. Effects of Player Disqualification

Eligibility: A disqualified player is not eligible to participate at that NTRP level.

Local League Matches:
If a computer-rated player is disqualified, no matches will be reversed. If a self-rated player or a player who successfully appealed his computer rating is disqualified, the last three matches played shall be considered losses for the disqualified player and shall be considered wins for the opposing player or doubles team.


Delaware District Championship Matches: The last individual match during District championship play shall be considered a loss and a win by the opposing player or doubles team.

D. RETURNING USA League Tennis players
Returning players to USA League Tennis play will begin the league season with their current NTRP computer rating (including benchmark players).

Accessing the Internet to view current NTRP Ratings:

Step#1. Use the following URL address to get to the Middle States page.

www.middlestates.usta.com

Step#2. On the menu on the left margin of the Middle States page, click on "TennisLink". Click on "Find a Rating" from the menu at the right, and follow the instructions given on the page that will appear.

E. New USA League Tennis players (Players not having a computer-generated rating.)

New players enter the program by rating themselves. The NTRP characteristics have not changed.  Players should be able to self-rate accurately…do you play with league players who currently have computer ratings?  Knowing their ratings, where would you place yourself? Players unsure of their rating are encouraged to contact their local pro for guidance. TennisLink will provide a self-rating declaration box for new players at the time of registration. New players will begin to generate a dynamic NTRP rating after their first match against a player who has an NTRP computer rating.

Caution: Once a player enters a self-rating into TennisLink, the rating will be locked in and cannot be changed throughout the 2005 summer league season. Players should carefully assess their ability prior to entering their self-rating.

F. Elite Level Players
Beginning with the start of the 2005 League season, all players who have had a national or sectional ranking; played college tennis; taught or played tennis professionally, and who intend to self-rate must complete a “USTA PLAYER BACKGROUND HISTORY” form. The form must be submitted to Sally Baird, Middle States Director of Competitive Tennis, and receive approval from the Section to play at their self-rated level before participating in a match. Failure to do so or omission of information regarding a player’s tennis history will subject the player, the captain and/or others who condoned inaccurate self-rating to sanctions and disqualification.

G. Fair Play Grievance Procedures
Any league captain, coordinator or member of a championship committee has the right to file a Fair Play Grievance against a player and/or captain who commits or condones self-rating at one NTRP level when his/her actual skill level is at the top of the next level or higher. See form titled "Protocol for Filing a Fair Play Grievance” for procedures. Fair play grievances must be filed with:

Sally Baird
Middle States Director of Competitive Tennis. 
1288 Valley Forge Road, Suite 74
P.O. Box 987
Valley Forge, PA 19482    

IV. SCHEDULES AND PERMITS

All team captains are required to submit a Southern Delaware USA League Team Entry Form by March 15, 2005 to their League Coordinator. The Form allows captains to indicate the desired number of matches their team would like to play, up to three preferred match playing times, and up to three playing dates to be avoided. The data will be input to the District’s scheduling program (Randolph Scheduler). The program will attempt to meet each team’s team preferences as closely as possible.  

Team Slots Lists. After consulting with their League Coordinator to determine the number of matches to be played, teams must submit a “team slots” list showing several dates and times courts are available at their site for “Home” matches. “Home” teams are responsible for any court fees. The list is submitted with the Southern Delaware USA League Team Entry Form by March 15, 2005. Captains are asked to provide 10-20% additional slots to allow for rescheduling rainouts or resolving conflicts. In some instances, more than one team may have its “Home” courts at the same site. When this happens, teams are asked to specify slots that do not conflict with other teams’ slots at the site, or the League Coordinator will determine the slots each team uses.

It is imperative that teams and players be flexible about match locations, times and dates in order to complete league play by deadlines set by the Middle States Section.

Matches at some sites may be scheduled back-to-back. In such instances, teams scheduled to play a match on one or more courts still being used should allow the matches on those courts to be completed.

League Coordinators will send match schedules to all captains approximately two weeks before the start of league play.

Captains should confirm scheduled start times, directions, etc., with the opposing captain prior to each match. Any changes in match schedules due to weather or any other reason must be reported to the League Coordinator.

V. LEAGUE PROCEDURES AND MAKE-UPS

A. Incomplete Matches: If matches are started but not completed because of darkness, rain or other reason, captains must arrange to finish the match at a location and time mutually agreeable to both captains within two weeks of the date the match was originally scheduled. The captains must notify the League Coordinator whenever rescheduling is necessary. If the delayed match is not played within the two week time period, the League Coordinator may designate the time and place for completion. All scheduled matches must be completed and reported on TennisLink by the last day of the league season. Failure to do so will disqualify teams from advancing to Local or Sectional championships.

Rain Procedures: In the event of rain or impending rain, both captains should communicate by phone in sufficient time prior to the match so that team members can be notified of any cancellation. As long as both captains are in agreement, the match may be postponed because of weather. However, if there is any dispute between captains concerning whether to play or not to play, both teams must show up at the scheduled match site and starting time in order to avoid a potential forfeit.

If matches are started and it begins to rain, the two captains should immediately decide if they want to reschedule all courts to be played at one time and location, or if they want to reschedule on a court-by-court basis. When rescheduling, substitutions or lineup changes are not allowed on individual courts where the first point has been served (court match has started), or on defaulted courts. Substitutions and lineup changes are allowed on courts where the first point has not been served (court match has not started) and not defaulted. Keep in mind that captains must arrange to complete the match within two weeks of the date the match was originally scheduled.

If the captains agree to reschedule on a court-by-court basis, they should have their players exchange names, phone numbers and scores at the time the decision to postpone the match has been made.

If the captains agree to play all courts at one time, they should agree on a time and location.

If the two captains cannot agree on how/when/where to reschedule the match, the League Coordinator will pick 2-3 dates/sites for the captains to choose from. If the captains cannot agree, the coordinator will pick one. 

Occasionally it may be necessary to reschedule matches for reasons other than rain. When rescheduling takes place, both captains must agree and the League Coordinator must be notified.

D. Matches may be rescheduled if two or more players on a team are involved in the following USA Tennis League events:

2004 Super Senior Invitational, May 12-15, 2005, Kansas City, MO
Delaware District Mixed Doubles Championships (April 23 and 24)
Corporate League Championships (TBD)
Mixed Doubles Sectional Championships (TBD)
National Northeast Regional Mixed Doubles Championships (August 2005; Site TBD)
District, Sectional and National Championships (See Section XII)

NOTE: Rescheduling does not apply to USTA tournaments.

E. Continuous Play: After the first game of each set and during a tiebreak, play shall be continuous and players shall change ends without a rest period. At the conclusion of the first set, a set break of no longer than two minutes is permitted. A ten minute set break with coaching is allowed between a second and third set when a full third set is played. 

F. Match Tiebreak: Players on an individual court may elect to use a Match Tiebreak in lieu of a full third set in the event of split sets. Such an election may be taken at any time during the match as long as all players involved agree. A two-minute rest break is allowed, but coaching is not allowed between a second set and a Match Tiebreak.

A Match Tiebreak winner is decided by player(s) reaching first to 10 by a margin of two. The player or team whose turn it is to serve shall be the server for the first point. (In doubles, either player may serve first.) The opponent shall be the server for the second and third points and thereafter each player shall serve alternately for two consecutive points until the winner of the Tiebreak set has been decided. The winner's Tiebreak score shall be scored on TennisLink as 1-0, "retired" for the third set.

G. In order to be eligible for Local League Championships, players must have played on that same championship team in at least two team matches during the local league season (one may be opponent’s default).

H. Each team must have a captain or acting captain present at every match. Captains must exchange scorecards simultaneously, complete with player numbers and names, five minutes prior to the scheduled match starting time. Unless there is a rainout or injury prior to the first serve, lineups cannot be changed once scorecards have been exchanged. Players not present when scorecards are exchanged must be listed as second singles, or second/third doubles.

I. The Delaware District web site's "TennisLink" section can be used by team captains to review team rosters and standings. Prior to each match, captains should carefully check to ensure that each player has a valid NTRP rating. (See Section III.)

J. Adult Division matches consist of two singles and three doubles courts; Senior and Super Senior Division matches, three doubles courts; 2.5 and 5.0 levels, one singles and two doubles courts. All defaults must be made from the bottom up (third doubles before second doubles or second singles before first singles).  Available players must move up into the necessary team positions to accommodate any defaults. If a captain questions the order of default by an opposing team, he or she should not sign the scorecard, should not verify the match results on "TennisLink", and must file a written grievance so stating within the time period allowed (see Section XI). Once match results have been verified on "TennisLink", defaults appearing in the wrong positions will be considered by mutual agreement and the team match will stand as played without penalties to the defaulting team.  In the event both Captains have less than the full number of players to fill all courts, each Captain must determine his or her own line-up separately and then exchange line-up cards to determine which courts will be played.

K. In the event of player(s) disqualification (more than four out-of-district players on a team; not registered for the team) all matches played by the player(s) shall be considered losses. All scores must be left in TennisLink for NTRP calculation purposes. Sally Baird, Middle States, Director of Competitive Tennis, will “disqualify” the match for the winning team, if necessary.

L. Cell phones or pagers must be turned off during a match. If a player's cell phone or pager rings during a point, that player loses that point.

M. When players disagree as to the score during play, the following procedures from the USTA’s “Friend at Court, The Code” should be used to resolve the dispute.

Step#1: Count all points and games agreed upon by the players and replay only the disputed points or games; if they cannot agree, go to Step#2.

Step#2: Play from a score mutually agreeable to the players; if they cannot agree, go to Step#3.
 
Step#3: Each player states the score they believe it is, then the racquet is spun and the winner's score stands.

N. Winners in single flight leagues will be determined according to 2005 USA League Tennis Regulation 3.03I.

O. Rain During District Championships. Rain invariably causes delays. Matches are not shifted from outdoor to indoor sites until the Championships Committee concludes that outdoor play cannot proceed within a reasonable amount of time, or if the forecast indicates a high probability of rain. Therefore, teams should be prepared for the following:

Matches being delayed
Waiting on-site for further instructions
Matches being postponed until the following day(s), evening(s) or the following weekend
Possible shift to no-ad scoring or pro sets
Divisions and teams being split between different sites
Championship matches being played throughout an entire weekend, including evening play
Paying a fee for indoor play

Q. If Delaware District Championships are not completed because of rain or other reason, champions of single flight leagues will be determined according to 2005 USA League Tennis Regulation 3.03I. Champions of multiple flight leagues will be determined by a playoff between the top team from each flight as determined by 2005 USA League Tennis Regulation 3.03I.   

R. Super Senior league levels will be 6.0, 7.0, 8.0 or 9.0 where the combined ratings of the team partners on a given court must be equal to or below the league level. The partners may not be more than 1.0 level apart. 

S. National championship teams must move up one level as a team the following year or disperse to form new teams with no more than three players who were on the final roster at the conclusion of local league play.

T. 2005 USA League Tennis Regulation 3.01A requires a minimum of two teams per flight. Some flights occasionally do not have the minimum number of teams. If this happens in ALL districts, the Middle States Director of Competitive Tennis (Sally Baird) MAY choose to play a local league in "tournament style" at the Sectional Championships. League Coordinators having a single-team league should contact Sally Baird to determine the status of leagues in other Middle States districts and ask if a "local league" will be played at the Sectional Championships. If necessary, the League Coordinator is authorized to attempt to form a local league to qualify a local team for Sectional Championships, including having players from lower levels compete, who would otherwise be outside of the normal playing rules for level of play.

VI. SCORE REPORTING

A. Match results must be reported to TennisLink by EITHER captain within 72 hours of the match completion, and then verified by the OPPOSING captain within 48 hours. Match scores will be locked-in on TennisLink after 48 hours if the opposing captain has not verified. Once a captain reports a score, only the League Coordinator can make a change. The opposing captain must contact the Coordinator when a score is disputed. Failure to report scores may result in the winning team not receiving credit for the win and the losing team not having the matches recorded and counted. Scorecards should not be sent to League Coordinators, but signed by each captain and retained in the event of future dispute.

Step #1. Log on to "www.delaware.usta.com".

Step #2. The Delaware District home page will be shown. Click on "TennisLink" on the left margin.

Step #3. The "TennisLink" page will be shown. Click on “Record a score” on the right margin.

Step #4. A new page will come up where you will be asked to enter your USTA number and the match number.

Step #5. A new page will come up and you will be asked to verify the teams for the match number you entered. After verifying, click "Next".

Step #6. The page for entering scores will come up. Enter the scores. NOTE: IF A PLAYER'S NAME IS NOT SHOWN WHEN CHOOSING PLAYERS FROM THE TEAM DROP-DOWN MENU, THAT PLAYER IS NOT REGISTERED AND MUST BE DEFAULTED. CHANGE THE "MATCH STATUS" TO DEFAULT. THE SCORE OF 6-0, 6-0 WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE FILLED IN.

Step #7.  Always be sure to choose “Finish” before exiting scorecard entry.

If you do not agree with a score previously entered, choose "Dispute" and contact your League Coordinator by e-mail with a copy to the opposing captain stating the reason for the dispute.

Captains may review other match scorecards by entering a match number in the “Match Number” field at the bottom of the TennisLink screen.

VII. WARM-UP PERIOD, LATENESS & DEFAULTS

A. Warm-Up Period: All matches should start PROMPTLY at the time scheduled. Under USA League rules, players are allowed only a TEN-MINUTE warm-up. Unless a late arriving player waives it, the warm-up period will be allowed as long as the player is on the court and ready to play before the 15-minute default time expires.

Lateness:  Any player who is more than FIFTEEN (15) minutes late for a match may be defaulted by the opposing team.  For scorecard purposes, a default is recorded, scored as a 6-0, 6-0 win for the player (doubles team) receiving the default. In the event of a default by both opposing players (doubles teams), both sides will be given a 0-6, 0-6 loss and neither receives credit for a win.

C. If a team defaults an entire team match (all courts), that team (defined as four or more players from the same team) may not be allowed to form as a team the following season.

VIII. DARKNESS RULE

A. In the event an outdoor league match is not completed by 8:00 p.m., upon the request of either team, that match may be suspended and play completed at a later time to be scheduled, preferably at the same location.

B. If both teams wish to play beyond 8:00 p.m., they are strongly encouraged to do so. Daylight conditions vary during the course of the summer.  In the event working outdoor lights are available at the match site, play continues until the match is completed.

IX. ORDER OF STRENGTH

All players are required to play at their current NTRP rating level in league competition.  Because the order of strength rule is no longer enforced at the Sectional and National championships, there will be no order of strength rule in effect for local league play.  Nevertheless, captains are encouraged to field their players for each team match in order of strength.

X. COURT CONDUCT

A. All matches should be conducted according to USTA Code of Conduct rules. Any violation of these rules may be grounds for filing a grievance.  Players should be reminded of the following rules to avoid the most common on-court arguments:

                   
Announce the score before beginning each point.
When unsure of a line call, the ball is GOOD.
Players may NOT enlist the aid of spectators when making line calls.
When a Match Tiebreak is not used, a ten-minute rest break with coaching is allowed between the second and third sets. Coaching is not allowed at any other time.
When a Match Tiebreak is used in lieu of a third set, a two-minute rest break is allowed, but coaching is not allowed.

Additional rules can be found in “The Code: The Players’ Guide for Unofficiated Matches”. Go to web site www.tennisserver.com/code.html for a copy.

B. Players are responsible for picking up any litter or trash left by them at court sites.  Players should also exercise discretion concerning the use of any post-match alcoholic beverages.  Use of public and private courts for USTA League play is a privilege.  Do not abuse it.

XI. GRIEVANCES
All captains should also read the 2005 USA League Tennis Regulations and the USTA/Middle States Section Rules for additional rules and grievance procedures.  When in doubt about a rule or procedure, contact your League Coordinator. If it becomes necessary to file a formal complaint regarding any matter, follow the exact procedures spelled out in Section 2.02 (Page 7) of the 2005 USA League Tennis Regulations. Copies of all grievances must be submitted in writing (hard copy or e-mail) to the Delaware District Area League Coordinator (Tom Ellis, see Section XIII for address) within seven days of the match grieved (or, if applicable, within 24 hours after the deadline for the end of local league play, whichever occurs first.). Upon receipt of the complaint, the Area League Coordinator will immediately send a copy to the Chair of the appropriate League Grievance Committee and to the persons listed below.

1) Captain of the player(s) or team against whom the complaint has been made;
2) League Coordinator;
3) Delaware District Executive Secretary;
4) Middle States Director of Competitive Tennis.
