Effective Immediately: In junior tournaments, TNS will align with ATA policy. Therefore, in 3.5 star events (and lower) players can play up two categories; for example, an 11 year old can play in the U14 and U16 categories if they wish. In 4 star events players can play up two categories IF they are in the top two of their secondary (higher) category.

While it is possible for players to play up, this decision should be made in consultation with the player’s coach. TNS does not recommend that every player plays up by default.
