How to Qualify

Your Area League Coordinator or Section Coordinator, Darren Wenger will let you know if you received an automatic berth based on your regular season finish.
Once notified of qualification, you will need to reserve/confirm your spot in the tournament by emailing Darren Wenger (firstname.lastname@example.org
Upon receipt of your reservation email, eligible player rosters will be emailed to each coach based on TennisLink results. A player is only eligible to play in the Section Championships if they played 2 local team matches (one may be a default) and have those results recorded and verified in TennisLink.
For those teams that did not receive an automatic berth from their local leagues, there is the opportunity to receive a wildcard into the Section Championships.
