Sport-specific guidelines

  • Athletes may participate in an Individual Skills event OR a Singles event, AND one Doubles Event.
  • Please use the 2017 SOMN Tennis Competition Levels to help determine which events and levels an athlete should be registered for. These levels are based on ball type and court size. The Competition Levels along with Qualifying Scores will be used in the divisioning process and will indicate which ball and court size will be used in competition.
  • At competitions, we will be using the low compression red felt balls rather than the foam balls for Individual Skills Level 1 and Short Court Singles Level 2. Per USTA recommendations, the red foam balls are recommended for practicing in a gymnasium, and the red felt balls are recommended when practicing and playing on a traditional tennis court.
  • For Unified Doubles teams, the expectation is that the athlete and unified partner train and compete together throughout the season. Dedicated to promoting social inclusion through shared sports training and competition experiences, Unified Sports joins people with and without intellectual disabilities on the same team. It was inspired by a simple principle: training together and playing together is a quick path to friendship and understanding.
