National Championship hosted in Region I
New This Season—B Rankings and B National ChampionshipsThe APTA is thrilled to announce the 2018 Men’s and Women’s B Nationals, to be held at New Jersey venues in March. This will be the perfect season-end national tournament for club and league participants who want to compete against other B players.
|Date:||Thursday - Friday, March 15-16, 2018|
|Location:||Indian Trail Club, Franklin Lakes, NJ|
|All players must be current APTA members. Join the APTA|
|ELIGIBILITY - All APTA members rated below 5.5, who are not rated in the top 50 men’s or the top 30 women’s teams nor won two main draw matches in a row at an NRT (rated higher than 1.5), are eligible to play in the B Nationals.
B RANKINGS - Dave Broderick, APTA board member and Head Racquets Professional at New Jersey’s Short Hills Club, is spearheading the B national ranking system. B players will gain ranking points at APTA sanctioned B events, culminating in a final season national B ranking. The top two results for teams will determine year-end ranking, using the same formula as for standard national rankings. (Teams playing only the B Nationals and no other B event will not qualify for a season-end National Ranking.)
B NATIONALSThe APTA is bringing back the Men’s B Nationals (previously known as the Winnable Bs) and is introducing an all-new Women’s B Nationals. The Men’s B Nationals will take place on March 17-18. Tournament Director Drew Broderick and the Canoe Brook Country Club in Summit, NJ, will host and are looking to draw 128 teams.
The first-ever Women’s B Nationals will be held on March 15th-16th. Tournament Director Mike Gillespie, co-chair Eric Fey, and the Indian Trail Club in Franklin Lakes, NJ, will host a field of 64 teams. The event promises to be fierce, festive, and wildly fun.
SELF-RATING - B Nationals welcomes players rated below 5.5. The APTA has a self-rating tool on the website to assess your level. Take the two-minute test regarding your paddle tennis skills. You will receive an email with your rating and great tips on ways to improve your game—and your rating.
APPROVAL - The newly formed B Tournament Committee will review results of all B events to determine eligibility for the first year-end B rankings. Teams must play two events to qualify for a season-end national B ranking. All teams participating in the B Nationals in March must be approved by the B Tournament Committee prior to the event. Players or teams who do not meet the B criteria will be ruled ineligible.
DESTINATION NEW JERSEY - For every pro and top-flight player, there are dozens of B players who want to climb the B rankings and vie for their own National Championship. Start hitting B tournaments near you, and get ready for paddle’s own March Madness!
