All 10-and-Under matches will be played on a 78' court using the green dot ball. Players are required to move through the USTA Progression earning stars and trophies (unless they were grandfathered into green ball at the end of 2016) in orange ball events. Orange ball 60' 10-and-under competition will not be offered at the Palmetto Championships. Competition at the Southern Closed Championships will also be on a 78' court using the green dot ball.
