USTA Merit-based Wild Cards
The USTA has a formal system of merit-based wild cards in order to create developmental and progression opportunities for our best American players. Please click the “more info” button to learn more about this system and see what wild cards have been allocated to top finishers of the Easter Bowl.

Here is the link to the wild card information: Wild Cards 2019

Players may enter more than one division. They will try to put you in the older division first, if you don’t qualify then they will try to put you in the lower age division. If you are not selected in that you will be placed on the younger age division alternate list. You can also enter the ITF event but you can not be in the qualifying for that and play in the 12-16 divisions.

If you have entered the Easter Bowl and another level 3 event, you will need to decide by Tuesday, March 12th what event you would like to stay in. Please email the Tournament Director with your decision.
