I don't understand why the USATT keeps the schedule of the Open a secret.  We're 4 months from the tournament and we don't have the dates or the schedule.  They should announce their events at least a year in advance.  How can you market an event properly while keeping it a secret?  You would think the USATT would have at least one person who understood marketing.

Are other countries like this?

I heard rumor says this year US open will be Houston since it needs to more experience with 2021 World Championship.

It makes sense.  Since it's in Fort Worth, less players will be going.  I just went to the USATT website and there is no Fort Worth club listed.

I'm sort of thinking they will probably do the event in TX but are keeping their options open? Is that why nothing has been announced?

Pretty odd and shitty tho.

At the Nationals they were saying it would be at the Fort Worth Convention Center.  I also saw flyers at the Nationals on Fort Worth and the convention center.

Hi all, 

Unfortunately I haven't received any word on dates yet, so haven't been able to publish anything on the website. The US Open will be held in Forth Worth, TX and should be second week of December. As soon as I have the confirmed dates, which I have been pushing to get, I will post straight away. 

The issue at hand was that there was consideration not to host a US Open this year and to start planning next year's US Nationals or Open to try and get ahead instead of being far behind. The strain of finishing a huge event like the nationals and then coming straight back to start planning for the Open is really beginning to show. 

Virginia was very committed to hosting the open and so the team are really scrambling to make sure this event goes ahead. 

I know it's incredibly late in the day, I will do my absolute best to try and secure the dates this week if I can!

One way to get ahead is to call the Las Vegas Convention Center and book the week of July 4th for the Nationals and run the exact same schedule as this years event.  Then in January you can start working on the 2020 Open.

I don't see a need to change the events every year.

In all honesty I would like to see the event list locked down permanently and the entry form requiring minimal changes so it can be sent out straight away. There is always a lot of deliberation on events and it's a very unstable event list generally from year to year.

For the last several years the Nationals and Open entry have been way,way late.
 Why is this? Lack of expertise and not really caring about your customers.
 Hosting the Nationals and the Open are a PRIORITY and to be late every year and changing
 the format is not doing the membership any favors. 
 In the last few years administratively the USATT has lost sight of what is important.

There are some curious tidbits here, which have some interesting implications. First, I am somewhat peeved that I, as USATT member, learn about this ("we (edit) were seriously thinking about canceling US Open") from a semi-random forum post.  

Now, it's quite possible that having both Open and Nationals is a huge burden, both from financial and organizational perspective (USATT does not exactly swim in money and there are only so many resources) and may be it's worth having a conversation of whether we really need (or can afford) to have two of these each year. But I would appreciate a bit of openness on this issue from USATT. 

As far as scrambling  - I'm sure I don't know all details, but it's not like US Open was a huge surprise this year, which suddenly appeared out of nowhere.  Unless it was widely assumed internally that it will be cancelled and then new CEO said 'no way' (can't blame her, think about the optics: "new CEO comes in, suddenly US Open gets canceled, things fall apart...").

And regarding the constant format/event twiddling - yup, probably not a good idea. Mostly messes up organizers themselves, since they have limited experience with new events/formats and their impact on the rest of the schedule.

I think planning US open on Fort Worth, TX will be a big mistake. US only has two regions with a lot of players. One is CA area. One is NY area. Last year US open in FL has big attendance problems. I bet USATT are losing money on that. Learn from this year National and last year Joola. I bet this year Joola will also be huge people joining. LA open in September will also a big success.  You need people to join!

No matter where are US open this year, we are for sure not going.

I would love to see the same schedule of events for the Nationals and Open year after year.  Have the Nationals format a little different from the Open format.  There isn't any need for deliberations year after year.

You realize if the Open was in, say, NY, then everyone on the west coast has a 5+ Hour flight to get there and expensive hotel costs also, and vice versa if it was held on the west coast for anyone living on the east coast.  Having it in Texas actually makes a lot of sense, as it is relatively equidistant from either coast.  Given that you aren't going regardless of if they held it in your backyard, I have a feeling they aren't going to consider your objection.

USATT is in a no-win situation in that no matter where it is held, some group of players will complain.

It is not right. FL is equal distance between NY and CA too. Both CA and NY amateur players are not going. Some elite players, no matter in Chicago, or Texas, they will go. 

Last year when I saw almost 3/4 empty courts at US open, I feel we made mistake to join. This year US national is much better event.

The problem of putting the Open on the East coast is the East coasters prefer the Teams over the Open.
Everything is way more expensive than Las Vegas (think more than double).  the NY area does have a lot of players who are within a few hours of a playing facility and would probably go.  

The mistake of Fort Worth is that there aren't that many players within driving distance.  Airfare to Texas is okay, but I don't know about hotel rates or cost of facilities.

Las Vegas always draws good numbers because of the closeness of California players.  No other area can bring the numbers that California does.

Why did you put something that I didn't say in quotation marks.

I said that there WAS consideration, I didn't say to what degree and certainly did not indicate present tense.

Not because we prefer Team event. Two reasons: 1. timing is correct. (Thanksgiving time has nothing to do) 2. Location is right. Local clubs support Team event and send all their players in. 

I prefer single rather team. It is very hard to find teammate with same goal and similar level.

The Open should be about attracting international players and American spectators (not masses of US players).

Edited my post to reflect that such consideration did occur in the past. 

You also made it sound that a) CEO had to really push for it to happen and b) now everyone is scrambling to make sure it does happen, which implies that it was serious enough to delay normal event planning. Am I wrong here and it was an unfortunate choice of words in your post?

No mass of players, no money. It's all those players that make the event possible.

Las Vegas for Nationals as a mainstay is fine.  But a 2nd 5-star event in Vegas is a bit much and um, not a compromise for east vs. west coasts.  Fort Worth, Texas is a reasonable compromise.

Just did a quick check on Expedia. Currently it’s cheaper to fly from New York to Vegas than its to fly New York to Ft. Worth.

Florida is not even close to "equal distance from East and West coast".  LA is roughly twice as far from Orlando as Boston.  The Bay area is much further...  But you could be right about both coasts not attending.

Hopefully a much higher number of Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Arkansas, Kansas, Missouri, and New Mexico players will attend.

I think this is all a unique marketing ploy. Gotta have the code word or something to join in.

This worked great for google email way back when. Had to know someone to invite you.

Fair enough on the price, but distance and time zone are important factors too.

I'm fine with the selection of Fort Worth "IF" the surrounding states will really support it with the numbers needed to make it successful.  I would be surprised if the above states sent 250 players.

Keeping it in Fort Worth is a joke. They may not get the kind of international participation they seek to make it international in scope and reach. Plus they keep reducing the prize money which reduces the incentive for players to participate.

Just cancel it rather than be an embarrassment to the world.
