Improve your Tournament's Web Site

  • The day appears to be coming when most tournament administration will be done on the Internet ― without mailings or telephone calls. Here is a straightforward method of providing all relevant information about your event on its USTA web page.

    Use the Tournament Messages section (downward on the page) of the General Info tab of the Online Sanction Form to create a series of paragraphs.  Tournament Directors can logon to their USTA account and then click on the My Tournaments link under the Administration heading in the right-hand column (underneath the Help Center caption).

    Use Headlines such as "General", "Conditions", "Consolations", "Awards", "Facilities", "Driving Directions" and "Motels".

    The content of Tournament Messages can be improved by avoiding block caps (lower-case letters are much easier to read) and making headings or messages colored  (blue, black or red) or bold using the tools in the edit box.

    As with all data in TDM, use the Save Sanction Form (top right) to save your changes to the USTA host site.

    Here is a link to an older Cat II that used this approach.
