Wild card anyone? Forget watching the US Open. How about playing in it?
The U.S. Open playoffs are your opportunity to show you've got. Win this one and you get a wild card into the U.S. Open…really.
Registration opens today, March 15. Competition is in men's and women's singles as well as mixed doubles (new this year). You must be over 14 years of age and a registered member of the USTA to participate.* The competition begins regionally so there is bound to be one near you if you live in the US.
What the hey. Seriously, if you are good player (and you know what I mean by "good" here), give it a go. Here's all the info including where you can register and play.
*Memberships start at $19 for a junior and $42 for an adult.
