Qualifying for Atlantics:

Players must participate in at least one circuit event as listed above to be eligible to participate in the Outdoor Atlantics.  Provincial 2 star events are no longer qualifying events for Atlantics.

Qualifying for Nationals:

The top 3 finishers at the Outdoor Atlantics receive spots for Outdoor Nationals. Thus, the finals will determine the top 2 spots and the 3rd place match will determine the final spot.  Results in the circuit events will not impact the selection process for Nationals.

Seeding based on Rogers Rankings:

Seeding for Atlantics and Circuit Events will be primarily based on current Rogers Rankings; players are encouraged to participate in additional events both provincially and regionally to help improve their ranking.  These may include circuit events in the other provinces, junior events both in-province and out of province, and open events both in-province and out of province.

NEWS:

The following are some changes to event format agreed upon by Provincial Staff at our ATA staff meeting held in Halifax.  Note that at this point these changes are only for the Indoor Circuit and Indoor Atlantics and will be re-assessed prior to the start of the outdoor season.  The reasoning behind making some modifications to format is financial, school time loss, and preparation for nationals.  The changes may reduce the amount of court time required to run an event and thus the associated costs for court time would be reduced.  This will likely also result in being able to hold the event over a shorter period of time and thus not require players to miss additional class time.  And finally, the addition of doubles will obviously help prepare our players for nationals where all participants are required to play doubles which we do not currently include in any of our events.

Briefly, the changes are:

1.       All main draw matches remain as a best 2 of 3 sets, but any and all 3rd sets would now be a 10-point super-tiebreaker rather than a full set.

2.       All consolation matches in the circuit events are an 8-game pro-set.

3.       A 3rd/4th match will be played in all singles events with standard draws.

4.       Consolation will be removed from the Indoor Atlantic Championships and replaced with a mandatory doubles event split into 2 divisions with no ad scoring; Under 12/14 and Under 16/18.

5.       Team Atlantic has now been reduced in size for Nationals.  We will have only 3 spots for each of the National Championships.

The Indoor Schedule has now been confirmed and is as follows:

Circuit Event 1:  December 4-6, 2009, Halifax

Circuit Event 2:  January 22-24, 2010, St. John’s

Circuit Event 3:  February 5-8, 2010, Charlottetown
