The US OPEN is ‘open’ to ALL players. No qualifying events needed. You are eligible if you are a previous US OPEN gold, silver or bronze medalist, or if you just had fun trying! You have the chance to qualify if you have played in the US OPEN before, or if this will be your first experience. However, because of the high demand, we created the US OPEN Registration Lottery in 2019. It worked out great and took a lot of pressure off players trying to enter the minute registration opened.

The Lottery Selection Prioritization
First, Second and Final Considerations
The best odds to win a spot in the US OPEN is to play at your correct age event and your WPR/or self-rating for skill.
- Priority 1: Both players on the team have correct rating and correct age.
- Priority 2: One player on the team has correct rating and correct age.
- Priority 3: Neither player on the team has correct rating and correct age.
PLAYER REPLACEMENT GUIDELINES
Need A Partner?
Before the Registration Lottery opens go to our US OPEN Player Connection page to find a partner.
Need A Sub?
If your partner cancels, email firstname.lastname@example.org to add a new partner. You may choose a new partner who is not already registered in the US OPEN until April 1st. After April 1st, you must choose a sub from a player already registered in the US OPEN. Replacement players must be able to play in the same skill/age group that you have a spot in. Keep in mind, as your search for a replacement, that players may play down in age and up in skill. Replacements must be communicated to email@example.com by 6 p.m. the day before your event is scheduled to play. Any request for replacements after 6 p.m. will be reviewed by the Tournament Director for approval. Replacements can be found on the players needing partners list.
