The UTR system is becoming the authority on dynamic ratings

The Universal Tennis Rating (UTR) system provides tennis players worldwide a common scale to determine their level of play. The 16-level scale (from beginners to elite world-class professionals), precisely and reliably determines individual players’ ratings based on actual match results without regard for age, gender or where the matches are played.

Measure What Matters

UTRs provide a better way to measure success, by determining a tennis player's level of play, with the ability to track it over time to measure progress.

Unifies Pathway

Universal Tennis Ratings provides credit for results from any developmental pathway—from local, regional, national and international competition.

College Tennis

Universal Tennis helps college bound student athletes understand their competitive level, and how to use UTRs to help find the right college fit.

Universal Tennis Guiding Principles

Competition is good

Universal Tennis believes that playing competitive matches is the key to the development of tennis players.

Staying close to home

Staying close to home is good for junior tennis development, regardless of where home is.

W-L record

A win/loss record is not the best indicator of a player’s level of play.

Playing to win every game

Continuing to play hard ‘til the end is beneficial to the development of both players of a match.
