PLAYER REGISTRATION INCLUDING OPEN DIVISION
Due to the Michael Chang Tennis Classic being a one weekend tournament along with limited court space, all NTRP participants are limited to playing one singles and one doubles event (IN THE SAME DIVISION). Open players may enter one singles and one doubles event or they may enter two doubles events (Open men’s and Open mixed or Open women’s and Open mixed). The online process will allow you to register for only one doubles event. The USTA registration site will lock you out when registering for the second doubles entry. Open players wishing to play two doubles events will need to contact the tournament chair (Rebecca Brown) at 949-858-7300 for payment details and help with your 2nd doubles registration. Open players wanting to enter a second doubles event need to have their USTA number, partner’s USTA number and credit card available when calling in.

Men’s Open Singles $1,000/$500 (or 50% of entry fees, whichever is greater)
Men’s Open Doubles $500/$250 (or 50% of entry fees, whichever is greater)
All other Open Divisions’ prize money is 50% of that division’s entry fees
