IPIN (International Player Identification Number)
All players entering ITF Junior Circuit tournaments agree, as a condition of their entry, to register for annual IPIN Membership and pay the appropriate fee. Failure by a player to register for IPIN Membership will result in the rejection of that player's entry.

If you have problems registering for IPIN you should contact the ITF Junior Department by telephone or email before the entry deadline or refer to the FAQ section of the IPIN website which can be found here.
Online Entries and Withdrawals
All ITF Junior Circuit entries and withdrawals should be made online via the IPIN Online Service.
If a player cannot access the IPIN account, the player must submit the entry or withdrawal on an official form, which can be found at the bottom of this page and inside the IPIN account. Faxed entries and withdrawals must be signed by the player and must contain all the required information.
All players applying for entry shall be deemed to apply for entry into the Main Draw or the Qualifying.
A player may apply for entry into one (1) but not more than three (3) ITF Junior Circuit tournaments for a specific tournament week, and must indicate a priority at the time of entry. If no priority is stated, the ITF will assign a priority. A player may not apply for entry into an ITF Junior Circuit tournament if he/she has entered and is committed to another tournament during that period.
Entry and Withdrawal Deadlines
All entries must be submitted online via IPIN or on the Official Entry Form and faxed to the ITF.
All Official Entry Forms must be signed by the player and must contain all the required information. Emails are not accepted.
All entries are subject to the Regulations and Conditions of Entry.
- Grade A tournaments Entry Deadline: 1400 GMT Tuesday 41 days, 34 days or 27 days prior to the Monday of the tournament week*

All withdrawals must be submitted online via IPIN (even after the Withdrawal Deadline), or on the Official Withdrawal Form and faxed to the ITF. If it is after the Freeze Deadline, all Withdrawal Forms must also be sent to the Referee.
A player on one or more Alternate List(s) may withdraw any time until he/she first moves into a Main Draw or Qualifying Acceptance List, at which time he/she will be automatically withdrawn from all other Entry Lists by the ITF.
Any player accepted into the Main Draw or Qualifying who fails to appear for the Tournament without withdrawing (via IPIN or the Official Withdrawal Form) shall be subject to the penalties provided for No Show.
Players are permitted three (3) withdrawals after the withdrawal deadline per calendar year, which shall not count as Late Withdrawal Offences. It is not necessary to submit a medical certificate in the case of a Late Withdrawal.
Once a player has used up his/her three (3) “free” late withdrawals in a calendar year, all subsequent late withdrawals will be penalised according to the ITF Junior Circuit Code of Conduct.
- Freeze Deadline (All Grades): 1400 GMT Wednesday, five days prior to the Monday of the tournament week.
A player who has moved into a Main Draw or Qualifying Acceptance List by the Freeze Deadline is committed to play the tournament. After the Freeze Deadline, players on the Qualifying Acceptance List will no longer be moved into the Main Draw, and players on one or more Alternate Lists will no longer be moved into the Qualifying Acceptance List. Such Alternates are not committed to play the tournament.
A player who withdraws from Main Draw or Qualifying after the Freeze Deadline must withdraw by sending an Official Withdrawal Form to both the ITF and the ITF Referee before the sign-in deadline, or else he/she will be subject to the penalties provided for a No-Show.
A player who is qualified and who wishes to apply for Special Exempt status must do so by personally notifying the ITF Referee, either verbally or in writing, prior to the Qualifying Sign-in Deadline.
If there are not sufficient Special Exempt places in the Main Draw for all the applicants, the players shall be selected in accordance with their rankings on Monday, seven days before the tournament week.
If there is no qualifying competition, or if Special Exempts are not needed prior to the time that the qualifying draw is made, then the places in the Main Draw reserved for Special Exempts shall become places for Direct Acceptances and shall be filled with signed in players, to be selected in accordance with the rankings on the Acceptance List.
