  1. ELIGIBILITY/RULES
    1. Parent-Child Teams
      1. CHILDREN must play with their PARENT, GRANDPARENT, or LEGAL GUARDIAN
      2. CHILD’S AGE is based on their AGE ON THE DATE OF THE LOCAL EVENT PLAYED
      3. Anyone with a TOP-30 USTA New England JUNIOR STANDING MUST play up 1 age division or in the Parent/Child Open Division.
      4. Teams may compete in only one Pilot Pen Tennis Family Classic event. If a team wins more than one local event in any division, the RUNNER-UP TEAM WILL ADVANCE to the Regional Tournament.
      5. The AGE-ELIGIBILITY of the child is based upon their age on JULY 1st (Note: This is different than past years) Ex. if your child was 14 on the day you won your local Pilot Pen Tennis Family Classic event, but turns 15 before July 1st, they must compete in the 18/Under division)
    2. Husband-Wife Teams
      1. Participants must currently be married to each other on the date of the local event played.
  2. Parent Child Open Teams
    1. Our newest division; we are looking for parent child teams over the age of 18 to participate in this field or outstanding juniors who are not eligible in their age division due to their current USTA ranking.
  3. All Top 30 USTA NE Ranked Juniors
    1. A USTA NE top 30 ranked junior may not compete in their age division, however they may play up 1 division. For example: a 12 and under top ranked junior may play up to the 14’s division. However, an 18 and under top ranked junior must play up in the open division.

*If there are a limited number of entries, we may combine parent-child divisions. Ex) A draw with Mother-Child 12&U, and Father-Child 12&U. Even if an FC12 team wins the draw, the MC12 team who advanced the furthest in the draw would also be eligible to advance to the Regional Tournament.
