Texas CUP Invite Criteria 

(AUTO BID or WILD CARD, read details for the 4 event minimum for Wild Card)

Texas CUP CHAMPIONSHIPS

The Championships are purely invitational. Each division will have a maximum of 25 teams (2 bids given at each of the 12 Tour Stops - see below for what happens when a team cannot accept a Bid) and will be seeded according to TXBVA Junior Rankings after last junior stop using Junior Points. The Champions in each age group will receive championship prizes.

EARNING & USING A BID

Tour Stop Winners receive one bid as a team per Tour Stop win. This is considered an AUTO Bid and do NOT have to meet the minimum 4 TXBVA tour stops played to enter the Texas CUP Championship. The teammates must play together unless one player is unavailable (or accepts another bid to the Cup). If one teammate is unable to attend or has accepted another bid, the available player may replace her with an age- & gender-appropriate, active TXBVA player (non-auto bid active TXBVA player must have played in at least 4 Tour Stops. The bid is always initially awarded to the first 2 places at the Tour Stop (for the right of first refusal), regardless of whether either or both of the winning players already have earned a bid. 


A team that has only earned one bid between both players (i.e., won exactly one Tour Stop between both players) may not split in order to each enter the Texas Cup with a new partner, as that would be two entries and would require two bids. If the team wins two (or more) Tour Stops together, then they may elect to each accept one with a new partner.

If both teammates are unable to attend, the bid/invite will pass to a wild card players. The TXBVA office will notify the wild card team players if the bid has passed to them. Any wild card teams selected will be done using the junior ranking system of the TXBVA player in the Junior Age Division who has not yet earned a bid, and the partner of his/her choosing provided they meet the 4 TXBVA Tour Stops minimum. The TXBVA office will notify these players once they are mathematically guaranteed a spot, typically starting 1-2 weeks before the Texas Cup.

If you earn multiple bids with different partners, you may choose whichever partner you’d like to play with, but please remember to give courtesy notice to any winning teammates that you will not be playing with, so the he/she has ample time to find a partner.

WILD CARD BIDS

Automatic bid winners do not have a minimum TXBVA Tour Stop requirement for tourneys entered to play the Texas Cup. If you win a bid at a stop, you are in the Texas Cup. To be eligible for a Wild Card, you must have played in at least 4 TXBVA Jr. Tour Stops. If we do not fill the Texas Cup spots with wild card bids based on the 4 stops, we will then default to TXBVA Points, starting with the top and working down with invites in your age group specific.
