    What is the difference between category 1&2?

      Carolyn Nichols says:

      Jerry, there are several differences. 1: the points given by the USTA are 1000 to the winner of a Category I and 400-500 for a Cat II or Super Cat II respectively.
      2: The Cat I is sanctioned by the USTA at the national level and the top 3 finishers in each age division win a Gold, Silver and Bronze ball respectively for 1st, 2nd and 3rd.
      3: The ITF sanctions Category I (35-85 only) as “Grade A” tournaments. The ITF sanctions Super Category II as Grade 1. The points to winners are 700 and 575 respectively.
      4: There are only 4 Category I in each age division annually, one on Grass, Hard, Clay and Indoor Hard. There must be a consolation offered in each division of a Category I. USTA national rules are used for seeding.
      5: Category IIs are sanctioned by the local USTA sections. The USTA national committee then decides which ones are to be Cat II or Super Cat II, if the tournament committee requests Category II status.
      There are a lot more Cat II than Cat I.

      Carolyn Nichols says:

      Cat I: 1000 points for USTA ranking and Grade A status (except 30 & 90 divisions); Only 4 Cat I a year per age division (grass, clay, hard, indoor hard); Many more Cat II, most of which are Grade 1 (all Super Cat II, 500 point USTA are ITF Grade 1 and a few Cat II are also Grade 1). Stronger and bigger draws at Cat I. All Cat 1 have singles & doubles consolation of some sort and last more days.

      Jerry, category 1 are national championships and the winners receive “gold balls” and 1000 ranking points. There are normally 4 held per age division per year. Category 2 are 500 point tournaments, there are many of them around the country and they are sanctioned by the USTA sections, not national.
