*L1 is the highest national level tournaments. L7 is introductory level tournaments.
**"Open" tournaments are open to the nation. "Closed" tournaments are Texas players only.
Step 4: Register your child
Click the tournament you are interested in attending. Scroll down to find the event that you would like your player to participate. Click "Checkout". Follow the prompts to pay online and register your player. You will receive a confirmation email if the registration was successfully submitted.
Step 5: Attending the tournament
Mid-week before the tournament starts, the draws of the event will be posted. Once you find your player's name in a particular draw, it will show the location that your player is playing. There are multiple sites for each tournament. You need to show up at the courts where your draw is being played.
