How do I enter Pro Tour events?
For ITF World Tennis Tour events, entry is through the ITF IPIN website. All players entering ITF World Tennis Tour tournaments must have a valid ‘Pro’ IPIN and have paid the annual fee for the IPIN online service. Players who enter or sign in without a valid IPIN and/or have not paid the annual fee may have their entry rejected.
For ATP Challenger events, only ATP ranked players can enter through the ATP Player Zone website. From 2016, all non ATP ranked players or players without a current ATP Player Zone registration need a wildcard to participate in the tournament with a maximum number of wildcards places available. Qualifying wildcards are declared after the completion of the qualifying sign-in.
See each tournament’s fact sheet for exact playing days and qualifying sign-in dates and times as these may vary from event to event.
How do I withdraw from Pro Tour events?
For ITF World Tennis Tour events, withdrawals can be made up to the end of the qualifying sign-in through the IPIN system.
Players are entitled to 3 late withdrawals offences from ITF World Tennis Tour events each year without penalty. An “off-site medical note” from a players own doctor is not required nor can one be used to protect or save a player from a late withdrawal offence.
Players are committed to the event if they appear on the main draw or qualifying list as at the freeze deadline and non-appearance or an incorrect withdrawal of committed players may attract a monetary fine from the ITF as a no-show offence. Alternate players as at the freeze deadline are not committed to the event.
Please regularly visit the acceptance lists on the ITF World Tennis Tour website up to the freeze deadline as entry lists often move substantially in advance of the freeze deadline.
For more information on the withdrawal procedure from ITF World Tennis Tour events, please visit the ITF Rule Clarification document.
Acceptance lists and rankings
The acceptance lists for each ITF World Tennis Tour event is released on the ITF World Tennis Tour website immediately after the entry deadline has passed. The acceptance list places players in order based on the ATP/WTA World rankings, ITF ranking and national rankings thereafter. However, the ITF World Tennis Tour office only accepts the national rankings of the Top 500 Australian players. Players outside of this list are drawn into their position on the acceptance list in random order. International players will not be on the Australian National Ranking list that is sent to the ITF World Tennis Tour office.
Please be aware that this specific top 500 list is only accepted by the ITF World Tennis Tour office four times per year. Because of this, we send the latest top 500 player list to the ITF World Tennis Tour office in time for the start of each Australian circuit and not on a fortnightly basis throughout the year.
The acceptance lists for ATP events are only available on the ATP Player Zone website.
Wildcards for all of the Pro Tour events are decided by the National Selectors and will automatically consider all entered players.
