***Open Singles consists of two round robins followed by medal rounds. The first round robin serves to sort players into three divisions. Each division will have a second set of round robins, and the results of these determine the players who advance to the medal round. Medals are awarded in each of the three divisions. Class A determines the State Games of America Champion. The overall format may change if there are a large number of entries. In particular, there might be more divisions, and some may be based on ratings rather than classification matches.

Doubles Registration: If registering for a doubles event, the participant must still select “Myself” or “Another Participant” on the first step of the registration process. The participant will be asked to list the doubles partner’s names. Entering their name DOES NOT register them for the event. Both team members must register themselves, or the participant can register the partner by selecting “Another Participant” on the first step of the registration process.
Participants registering online will be prompted to enter their USATT rating before check-out. A rating IS NOT required to register.
The specific format of each event depends on the number of players entered (in particular, see the note for Open Singles below). Players in any event with at least 4 entrants are guaranteed at least 3 matches.If there are fewer than 6 entrants, the event will consist of a single round robin.
Events with 6 or more entrants will be divided into smaller round robins, with a medal round to follow. Where possible, players will be seeded into round robins in an effort to avoid grouping the top players together. Recreational singles may require a second set of round robins before the medal round.
