    • Because they are level based tournaments I suppose. And they aren’t open to all comers as are senior events (if you are the appropriate age). But you’d have to ask the USTA that question. I think they receive their own special award, which seems appropriate.

    • USTA Level 1 Age Division tournaments are the highest level ranking tournaments. There are currently three offered per age division for adults (30-90+) on three surfaces: clay, grass and hard courts. Gold balls are awarded only for winners in singles, doubles and mixed in these divisions; also in family divisions (husband/wife, spouse/spouse, father/daughter, mother/daughter, father/son, mother/son). Previously gold balls were also awarded to Indoor champions but no more. Not all age divisions in mixed are currently offered as Level 1 events. Level 1 events are “open” to anyone who meets the age/family requirements, there are no restrictions to certain NTRP levels for example.
