2012 USTA/Midwest Section Adult Standing and Ranking Lists
The USTA/Midwest Section Standing Lists for adults will be published at least bi-weekly, and may be obtained on the USTA/Midwest Section website at www.midwest.usta.com
. These lists will be calculated using all match results from the previous 12 months that have been entered into the ranking database at the time of publishing in the age division that is being calculated.
These lists are not ranking lists. The requirements for being included on these lists are less rigorous than for an actual ranking. Corrections or inquiries regarding the Standing List must be submitted by mail, fax or e-mail only to the USTA/Midwest Section. Positions may not be appealed. Corrections will be researched, and changes will be made when appropriate.
