President's Cup - Rules for Region I
Region I Men’s President’s Cup Rules & Qualification Guidelines
To qualify for play in the Presidents Cup competition during the APTA Nationals event, the following set of qualifications must be followed:
All players must be current members of the APTA to be eligible for Region I PCQ points prior to the event being played. All APTA rules and requirements pertaining to President Cup competition will apply.
Any player from Region I can get points in PCQ tournaments regardless of partner.
Each player shall compete in at least three (3) Region I PCQ tournaments to be eligible.
The top eight (8) eligible players in three (3) Region I PCQ events plus bonus points will be automatically placed on the President Cup Team.
The final five (5) players will be a Captain’s Choice selection regardless of how many players have met the eligibility requirements. Two (2) of those players will be designated as substitute players and be used based on current President’s Cup guidelines.
If there are not eight (8) eligible players, then the Captain will choose as many players from the Region needed to complete the thirteen (13) player roster regardless of points.
The President Cup Captain will be responsible for team order. Points accumulated will not necessarily determine order.

Assembling the Team:
- There are six teams/positions and one sub for a total of 13 players.
- Playing in Region 1 PCQ tournaments award points to the team as well as to the individual player.
- The top two qualifying teams will automatically earn a spot on the team.
- In the event that any of the top 2 teams choose not to play, the next highest ranked team qualifies.
- Position 3 and 4 will be either a qualifying pair or two of the highest ranked individuals who have not qualified with a partner.
- Positions 5 and 6 are Captain's picks (a Captain’s pick is not limited by anything other than an individual ranking within the top 24 nationally)
- The 13th player, or sub, is a Captain's pick (a Captain’s pick is not limited by anything other than an individual ranking within the top 24 nationally)
- Failing the availability of an eligible team, the position then becomes a Captain's pick (factors to include are points & number of tournaments played in Region 1.)
The captainship will rotate every five years between NY and NJ, with the fifth year being a transitional year in which the outgoing captain will co-captain with the incoming captain. The captain is chosen by the Region 1 President.
