OPEN vs. HIGH SCHOOL INFORMATION

(a) The OFSAA Tennis Championship shall provide competition in Open and High School divisions. The classification of divisions is as follows:

(i) An Open Division player must have won a minimum of two rounds in total (one round
or more in a tournament and/or at a later date wins a round in another tournament) in a 3 star Ontario Tennis Association (OTA) tournament or higher, a Level 6 or lower
United States Tennis Association (USTA) tournament or the equivalent (European
championship) in the three years prior to the beginning of the school year. Any player
who has ever played in the Canadian Nationals or any player that has ever played in any U-14, U-16 or U-18 provincial championships shall also be considered an open player. A bye, defaulted or retired match in an OTA event does not constitute a win.

(ii) High School Division: any player who has not met the above criteria for an Open
player.
