o For 14s, 12s, and10-and-Unders, no matches start/resume after 9pm
o For 16s and 18s, no matches start/resume after 10pm
• Efforts made to better distribute elevated tournaments (Levels 1-5) geographically (53% in Michigan and Ohio, down from 71%)
• All events begin on Saturday
• There are elevated tournaments during all holidays, so less school is missed
• New 2-day 32-draw tournaments added
• Many more doubles added, most with a one-match consolation

The new ranking system will include results from singles matches and doubles matches in all tournaments that are now included in the calculation for the USTA North Carolina Standings list. The points earned in singles competition will be combined with the points earned in doubles competition to form one final point total that will be used for the USTA North Carolina Standings list and the USTA North Carolina year-end ranking list.

Players will receive credit for 100% of their singles points from their best six (6) singles events along with 15% of their doubles points from their best six(6) doubles events. See the chart below:

Best 6 singles tournaments=1500 points

Best 6 doubles tournaments=1200 points

15% of 1200=180 points 1500+180=1680
