Why is declaring residency important?
Residency declaration is a requirement for registering in closed USTA tournaments.
Declaring residency shall determine the players who may play in Closed Sectional and District Tournaments, the players who may appear on a Sectional Quota List, and the players who may be selected to represent a Sectional Association or District Association in a team competition.
When can you declare residency?
Players can only declare/update their residency once per calendar year. You must declare your residency prior to registering for a closed USTA tournament.
If your residency information has changed more than once in the calendar year, please contact USTA Customer Care.
