DROP-IN CLASS: HOW IT WORKS

TIA offers different levels of regularly-scheduled group programs every week. Each class is filled with enrolled players for the duration of the session (i.e., fall, winter, spring, summer). There are times during the session when players are unable to make their weekly class, which allows TIA to open up the program and offer “drop in” options for non-enrolled players. Most classes are multiple-court programs with 4:1 ratio. Curriculums include drills, singles or doubles strategies, and live-ball point play. If you’re unable to commit to a full session, the drop-in option is a perfect a la carte way to satisfy your tennis needs.

SEPTEMBER 30 – OCTOBER 2, 2022: L6 CHAMPIONSHIP (G 14U)

  • Tennis Innovators Academy, 110 Lake Street, White Plains, NY 10604
  • Registration Closes: September 24, 2022, 9:00 pm, EDT

YOUTH PROGRESSION & HIGH PERFORMANCE WEEKEND UTR MATCH PLAY

The Universal Tennis Rating (UTR) system provides tennis players worldwide a common scale to determine their level of play. The 16-level scale (from beginners to elite world-class professionals), precisely and reliably determines individual players’ ratings based on actual match results without regard for age, gender, or where the matches are played.

UTR MATCH PLAY FORMAT: 

  • Matches are held on Saturdays (Youth Progression Match Play) and Sundays (High Performance Match Play).
  • Each player is guaranteed one match.
  • All matches are UTR verified.
  • Matches are “fast four sets”; best 2 out of 3 with no “ads”.
  • If players split sets, 10-point, super tiebreaker is played.
  • If score tied (3-3), 7-point tiebreaker is played.

INDOOR SEASON ENROLLEE REGISTRATION PROCESS FOR UTR MATCH PLAY:

If you are enrolled for match play for the full indoor season, please follow the below steps to register on the UTR site for the match play event.

  1. Enrolled match play participants will receive an email every Monday reminding you to register, on the UTR site, for the upcoming UTR event. There is no additional fee as you have paid in advance to participate in match play.
  2. Included within the weekly email sent on Mondays, there is a password for you to use when registering for the upcoming event. Please do not share the password with friends as this will bypass our “Pay As You Go” procedures for match play and those players will not be able to participate in the program.
  3. Player must be registered for the UTR event by Thursday @ 4PM to be included in the draw for match play.
  4. Draws are posted by Friday evening.

“PAY AS YOU GO” REGISTRATION PROCESS FOR UTR MATCH PLAY:

For players that do not want to commit to match play for the indoor season, you have the option to “PAY AS YOU GO”.

  1. Please click the toggle below to submit payment and begin the FIRST STEP in the registration process. This fee includes court fees, tennis balls and  walking director fee.
  2. Once payment is received, you will automatically receive a confirmation email with the registration link to the UTR event + the password. Please do not share the password with friends as this will bypass our “Pay As You Go” procedures for match play and those players will not be able to participate in the program. (Separately, if you do not have a UTR Power Player Subscription, there is an additional $12 fee to be paid directly to UTR when you sign up for this event.)
  3. You must register on the UTR event site by Thursday @ 4PM.
  4. Draws are posted by Friday evening.

USTA WESTCHESTER / ROCKLAND LOCAL RULES & REGULATIONS

INDOOR USTA TIMED MATCH PROCEDURE

  • A specific time ending device needs to be agreed upon and set by both teams. If an alarm is being used, the volume should be audible to all and play stops when the sound goes off even if the players are in the middle of a point.
  • Play should continue right up to the end time of the match. In the event the match has not been completed at the 2 hour mark, end the match and allocate the points according to the following guidelines. (Use the “timed match” option when entering the scores for this court.)
  • A game in progress should not be completed and does not count.
  • If the teams have split sets, with no time left to start the match tiebreak – The match ends in a tie.
  • If the team that won the first set is on serve, tied, or ahead by 1 break or more in the 2nd set – That team wins the match.
  • If the team that won the first set is losing the 2nd set by 1 break or more – The match ends in a tie.

GUIDELINES IF TEAMS SPLIT SETS & THIRD SET MATCH TIEBREAK IN PROCESS 

  • If the match tiebreak is tied or on serve, the match ends in a tie.
  • If a team is up by one break point or more in the tiebreak, that team wins the match.

GUIDELINES IF SECOND SET TIEBREAK IN PROCESS & MATCH HAS TIMED OUT 

  • If the teams are in a second set tiebreak, the team that is up by one or more break points in that tiebreak wins the set (and it can then be decided if there is a match winner or if the match ends in a tie).
  • If the score in the second set tiebreak is even or on serve, the second set is deemed a tie and the winner of the match is the team that won the first set.

SPRING/SUMMER RAIN RULE

Visitors MUST declare before the match how they will handle a rain interruption. They have the choice of either coming back to finish the match, or using the timed match scoring below to decide the winner.

1. EXCEPTION: If less than one set is played, it is expected that the teams will finish their match on a rescheduled date, unless both teams agree otherwise. (If both teams agree not to reschedule a rained-out match that is still in the first set, a team that is up a break in the first set would win the match. If the teams are tied or on serve, the match should be recorded as a tie.) In the event of rain and a subsequent full match reschedule, any court previously defaulted must be rescheduled and played.


SPRING/SUMMER DARKNESS RULE

On outdoor unlit courts, play must continue until (and no later than) the designated match end time which is as follows:

  • May: 8 pm
  • June and July:  8:30 pm
  • August: 8 pm

Matches that time out due to darkness are considered final and do not get completed on a different date. Matches that time out for darkness should use the timed match procedure once the match is completed to determine if there is a winner or if the match ends in a tie.

TIA SAFETY GUIDELINES

TENNIS INNOVATORS ACADEMY IS A FULLY VACCINATED FACILITY

GENERAL

  • Masks are optional in the clubhouse and on court.
  • Hand sanitizer stands are available throughout the facility.

AIR CIRCULATION IN THE BUBBLES

TIA has three domes, East, West and North bubbles. The East and West domes are connected by a tunnel and two air circulating motors. The North dome is isolated and has its own air circulating motor.

The East and West domes combine for a space of 1,200,000 cubic feet, while our North dome is 400,000 cubic feet. These massive areas allow for substantial volumes of air that is constantly diluted and replaced with fresh air. The air-circulation systems run 24/7 throughout the indoor season; this maximizes the air flow and replacement of air. Our domes receive the highest air pressure the structure allows to ensure complete air change roughly every 60-90 minutes, and more importantly, the air at the 10-ft. level from the ground, where players are breathing, is replaced roughly every 15 minutes.

These facts, coupled with the natural social distancing that our sport allows and our safety guidelines, make TIA’s modern air structure system an extremely safe environment for tennis.
