Juniors Registration

Registration Information

Junior events are designated as LEVEL 5 for USTA Junior Open ranking purposes.  

Junior entrants register online using our tournaments site on USTA Serve Tennis. The link for registration will be available during the registration period starting February 29, 2024.

All entrants must sign a Waiver of Responsibility form & return to the Junior Tournament Director via email. The waiver form will also be sent to you by the tournament director after registration.

Event Fees: Singles $70 & Doubles $80 per team

A commemorative tournament t-shirt will be available to all Junior & CIF players for FREE. Players may pick up a t-shirt from the Merchandise Tent at Libbey Park from 8:00am – 6:00pm on Thursday, April 25 & Friday, April 26.

Note:   Junior Girls are allowed to enter both a Singles event (any age division) & also the Girls 18 Doubles. A player entered in a Junior event may not enter a Men’s or Women’s Open event. A doubles team entry will be considered as complete only when both players have entered & the full entry fee has been paid.

Registration for the Junior events opens February 29, 2024 and closes at 11:59 PM on Sunday, April 14, 2024. Once entries are closed in the various events & rankings & latest tournament results are available, the tournament committee makes every effort to establish an equitable competitors list & an alternate list. In this regard, we anticipate that a list of competitors & alternates will be posted on the Serve Tennis tournament home page by Friday, April 19, 2024. However, please note that the draws for the Junior events are limited, so that not all players listed in the Junior applicants list may be accepted by the tournament committee into the event (see specific event entry limits posted on the Serve Tennis tournament home page). Players on the applicant list who are not ultimately accepted into the event will not be charged a fee.

The website is the best way for us to communicate efficiently with you. Please read all the player information pertaining to you. If you have a problem or an unanswered question you may email the Tournament Director.

Checking in / Court Locations

All Junior players should check in directly at the site where their matches are scheduled.

The Ojai tournament website includes links to maps of our 40 sites. First check the draws for the three digit (or less) court code, then go to Court Locations (located under the ‘Tournament’ tab in the navigation bar) to find the map you want. You can manipulate the map & get driving directions.

The Draw

The draws are also posted on the large draw boards at Libbey Park. Those are the official times, but the most updated version is on the website. If we anticipate changes to the scheduling because of the weather, or other factors, we will post that information on the large draw boards & on this website.

Withdrawal Information

If a player in the Junior events wishes to withdraw, that information must be emailed to the Tournament Director at least 7 days prior to the start of the tournament to receive a refund of the entrance fee. This email must contain: the player’s name as listed on his/her entry form, the player’s date of birth, the event in which the player is participating, & the reason for the withdrawal.

In doubles, if there is a substitute player, please also list: the withdrawing player’s name, the partner who will remain in the draw, the full particulars (as listed on the entry form) of the substitute player.

The substitute player must also mail, or bring to registration, a completed & signed entry form and Waiver of Responsibility.

Policies

  • All Junior events start on Friday, April 26, and end on Sunday, April 28, assuming no weather delays. Players who enter Junior events do so as unattached individuals. Thus, these entrants may not represent their school, nor wear a school uniform, nor may their entry fee be paid by their school.
  • Coaching is not permitted in junior events except between the second & third sets.
  • Family, coaches, & friends of players will be required to purchase spectator tickets to gain entrance to Libbey Park, the Ojai Valley Athletic Club, & the Ojai Valley Inn courts during the hours of play. All players & coaches will be required to present identification to gain entrance at these sites. 
  • Any unruly parents or spectators will be excluded from attending the tournament.
