Teams were allowed to enter a total of 10 players at the subsectional level in this year's flighted tournament. Four flights of singles and three flights of doubles have enabled more athletes to participate in the WIAA tennis tournament program. Previously, schools were allowed to enter only two singles players and two doubles teams. The addition of flights has allowed coaches to include their regular season players into the tournament structure.
Teams will be playing dual meets to determine who will advance to the championship round. The team scoring the most individual flight wins will advance to the next level of competition. The three doubles matches will be assigned to a court first. When a match is completed, the Flight 4 singles match will be assigned, followed by the Flight 3, etc. The brackets were designed using a predetermined numerical draw. Teams were not seeded based on their overall dual meet record. The placement of teams into brackets will vary from year to year as the numerical draw changes from year to year.
Awards will be presented following the completion of the championship matches on Saturday afternoon. Medals and trophies will be presented to both teams competing in the championship match, in each division.

As the fall season begins with practice, we would like to remind you of several items. Transfer students - always consider all transfer students ineligible until they have been cleared for transfer, code of conduct, and academic eligibility. Your returning students – check their academic eligibility before competing and have your coaches meet with you again before the first contest to be sure an athlete did not join the team after the initial academic review. Foreign Exchange students - Be sure to communicate with your guidance counselor and principal to see if you have any foreign exchange students who wish to participate in athletics. Collect Required Documentation Before Practice or Competition. Health and Safety – Have your coaches review the material on the WIAA Health Page. Performance Enhancing Substances – PES is not limited to just steroids.
