    • There will be an application on USTA.com starting April 1st 2021…read the timeline in the post and read the guidelines. I will update this article on April 1, 2021 with a link to the application and it will also appear on the homepage of carolynnichols.com. Assuming of course the events aren’t cancelled again

  1. when will the super senior applicants be posted for the 2021 super senior team?

  2. I just turned 80 and am interested in playing in singles tournaments on soft courts. Where can I get a schedule mainly in the Mid-Atlantic area and in the east? Also, what are levels 1,2 & 3?

    • There are 7 USTA levels of tournaments with Level 1 being the top level (equivalent to a Slam for the pros) and Level 2 being equivalent to a “masters 1000). Level 3 would be ATP 500, Level 4, ATP 250, Levels 5-7 ITF/Challenger level equivalent.
      You have to search on USTA.com for adult tournaments then put in parameters (dates and location and surface, and age) for the tournaments you are interested in. There is a national Level 1 in the MidAtlantic area on clay.

  3. When will Fact sheet for super senior cup team be posted and where do we find it
