Players may play in both the Early Start League and the Adult Spring League.  Players may advance on only one team at the same age/NTRP level for the USTA TN Championships. 


Players who are “promoted” with year-end ratings are still eligible to compete on the Early Start team, if they qualified, as long as they are not DQ’d at lower level.  These players may compete at the state level, and at the sectional level, but MAY NOT compete at the National level with the lower level team.
