METROPOLITAN TENNIS GROUP
LIBERTY OPEN: A GLTA Masters Series Event

Online Application Instructions

Overview
MTG is honored to host the 2017 Liberty Open Tennis Tournament to be held July 1-4 at the renowned site of the US OPEN; the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing, New York. Players from around the globe will convene in New York City to participate in one of the most competitive events on the GLTA tour (www.glta.net).

This is the tournament’s 22nd year of offering every level of player – from novice to advanced – the opportunity to compete on the same courts as the pros. Singles, Doubles and Mixed Doubles events will be offered, including a 40+ division for men’s B and C singles events.   The online application may be a confusing process so we wanted to give some info for your reference to make it a little easier. 

To go directly to the online application, please go to the following link:

CLICK HERE

You will be at the tournament’s home page which contains important tournament information including dates, contact info, events and divisions, etc. 

STEP 1:  Click the “Click Here to Enter Online” button.  You will then be asked if you have an existing account/profile from previous GLTA tourneys and have saved your info.   If you do not have an account, you will need to create one in order to register online.  It is free and saves your vital info so the next tournament you register for, all you have to do is log in and the info will be there.  Please note your payment info including credit card and banking info does not get saved.  

STEP 2:  Once you have signed in, you will now be taken to the” Regulations” page which contains more info on the tournament as well as indemnification language that you need to click the “I Agree”  button.

STEP 3:  Now you are at the “Personal Details” page.  If you logged on using an already existing account or one you just created, all that info should appear.  If not, you should put the info in the appropriate fields.  Please note: Your GLTA member ID is the last 6 digits of your social security number.  Below is a corresponding table to show what levels you should sign up for.    

Men’s Singles: Open (5.0+) A (4.5) B (3.5-4.0) C (3.0) D (< 3.0)
Men’s Doubles: Open (5.0+) A (4.5) B (3.5-4.0) C (3.0) D (< 3.0)
Women’s Singles: Open (5.0+) A (4.5) B (3.5-4.0) C (3.0) D (< 3.0)
Women’s Doubles: Open (5.0+) A (4.5) B (3.5-4.0) C (3.0) D (< 3.0)
Mixed Doubles: Open (5.0+) A (4.5) B (3.5-4.0) C (3.0) D (< 3.0)

 

STEP 4:  You have now finished the “Personal Details” page and now are at the “Events Details” page.   You may enter as many as 3 events as we are a 4-day tournament.  However, you may not sign up for 2 of the same events in different levels.  The abbreviations for the events can be confusing.   The first letter distinguishes whether it is Men’s (M), Women’s (W) or Mixed (X).   The second letter is for Singles (S) or Doubles (D).  The remaining letter(s) distinguish the GLTA level (Open, A, B, C or D).  For doubles, if you know your partner’s name and/or GLTA ID #, please put in the appropriate fields.  If you do not have a partner, don’t worry.  We will find you a partner so please sign up and click the “Partner Wanted” checkbox.

STEP 5:  Now comes the “Extra Items & Remarks” page.  You can also choose to donate to our charities. 

STEP 6:  On the next page, you now have the option to review and verify your entry.  If you approve it, please click “Submit.”  If you do not submit it, the application will not go through.  You should get an automated confirmation from the application.

STEP 7:  Now on the Payment page, you can choose to Pay Now or Later.  If you choose “Now,” you will be taken to PayPal to do online payment.   You do not need to have an account with PayPal nor do you need to create one.  If you have a PayPal account, log in and submit your payment.  If you don’t have an account, you will have the option to enter your credit card or banking info.  If you choose “Pay Later,” you are all done for the moment.

STEP 8:  You will receive an automated response from the software site and, within 48 hours of submitting your application, you will receive a confirmation from the tournament director.  If you chose not to pay online, it will also provide info on sending in your payment.  If you do not receive an email from the tournament director within this timeframe, please check your spam folder first to see if you received anything from LibertyOpenTournament@gmail.com.  The first email you receive from the tournament director will ask you to click a button to confirm receipt; please do so as this will let us know your email address is properly stored in the database and that you will be able to receive important info regarding the tournament as it gets closer.

Even if you are paying by check to be mailed in, we encourage you to still fill the application out online as it enters you directly into the database and helps insure your info is entered as you wanted. 

Of course, should you have additional questions about the application or the tournament, in general, 

please don’t hesitate to contact Stuart Levy or Albert Cousins at LibertyOpenTournament@gmail.com or 646-234-2018.
