New men’s tennis postseason format set to debut

The men’s tennis postseason will have a historic new look starting this fall.

In the past, individual and team championships in each classification were decided at the same event, with teams earning team championship points based on each individual victory. This year, the individual titles from the number 1 singles to the number 4 doubles in each ranking will still be decided by a three-day tournament, while the team championships will be decided by a new double-style tournament that will run over several weeks.

“It really has to be the best of both worlds,” said CHSAA Associate Commissioner Bethany Brookens. “Many coaches have told me that doubles during the regular season ‘really count’ this year as teams are vying for a spot in the coveted 16-team bracket.”

On September 23, the CHSAA Tennis Committee will release a 16-team single elimination bracket for 5A and 4A, where the highest seed will host three rounds before CHSAA will host the Team Championship Finals at Denver City Park on September 18. October. In each round, teams will play head to head in all seven ladder positions to determine the winner and which team will advance to the next round.

In order to seed the team bracket, the CHSAA Tennis Committee will use any and all criteria including Universal Tennis Rating (UTR), league strength, overall record, competition strength, direct competition and common opponents in no particular. order.

This year, the men’s tennis teams will still have our individual regionals in which the individual positions – 1st in singles through 4th in doubles – will advance to the individual state championships.
