This will be the inaugural ATP tennis tour. It will consist of 36 weeks and 65 events. Points will be earned for each event and the top point scorer will be crowned the champion.Joining Tournaments

. If you join more than 1 I will give you are warning the 1st time. The 2nd time I will ignore all signups for that week.SCHEDULEhttps://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AmXj-eZzsaG5dGNNNHQwU3hwenl5ejY0VEh2a0xKM2c
I am starting it early so we can have a ranking system in place based on the outcome of the 1st 3 weeks of tournaments. No ranking system will be used in the 1st 3 weeks. I will try to follow the dates listed as closely as possible. The start dates may be earlier if the tournaments fill up faster.GAME PLAY

If tournaments do not fill by the deadline we will play with less players as long as we have at least 16. If byes are needed they will be drawn randomly in the 1st 3 weeks. After that the highest seeded players will receive byes.
If tournaments do not fill points will be awarded on a discounted basis based on number of entrants. For example, 128 possible entrants, but only 100 sign up. Normally 2000 points for winner if major. New points will be 100/128 =0.78125(2000)1562.5 points for winner.World Tour Finals
