    2017 Green Acres: How It Works

    Greetings, TATers. Welcome (back?) to Green Acres, TAT's annual grass court fantasy tennis competition, now into its ELEVENTH year!

    Pick Your Team
    You MUST select twelve players between the ATP and WTA (six from each tour), to be chosen from five categories. Each category contains a segment of the current top-100 ranked players.

    For the ATP/WTA selection, you need to...
    Pick THREE players from category A,
    FOUR from category B,
    TWO from categories C and D
    and ONE from category E.
    When complete, a team could look something like this.
    Cat-A: Murray, Kerber, Konta
    Cat-B: Tomic, Troicki, Bertens, Kvitova
    Cat-C: Harrison, Cornet
    Cat-D: Istomin, Jankovic
    Cat-E: Sela
    It is completely up to YOU how you distribute your six ATP and six WTA picks. If you want to fill up the A list with three ATP players, that is your choice/risk. The mission is to find the right balance.

    Remember the most important rule! Your team must include six ATP men and six WTA women at all times. If you end up with an inaccurate gender balance as a result of trades (e.g., seven men and five women), your trade will be cancelled, but you will still have used those trades.

    The Deadline
    Your initial team is due before the scheduled start of play for a main draw match--come rain, shine or monkeys from Jupiter. You must post your team in the "Post Your Team Here" thread. Any and all entries posted at a later time or in the wrong thread(s) will NOT be accepted.

    Should certain players fall (seriously) short of expectations, there will be SIX ATP/WTA trades for you to use to get your team back in contention.
    As always, any trades need to be made in the week BEFORE the next tournament starts, otherwise the traded player will not earn points until the tournament after that. There will be a "Trades" thread once the competition has started.
    Again, please remember that your team must include six ATP men and six WTA women at all times.

    The Points, The Tournaments
    For more information on the tournaments and how many points are available, go to the Tournament Points thread.

    And Then?
    Whatever happens, we can sit down and talk about it in a civilized manner in the Strawberry Lounge thread.

    Oh, and if you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask in the Have A Question! thread.
    Best of luck!
