The USTA uses the National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) for determining levels of competition for USTA league play. The goal of the program is to help all tennis players enjoy the game by providing a method of classifying skill levels for more compatible matches, group lessons, league play, tournaments and other programs.
The 4 main tennis levels are the NTRP, UTR, ITF, and ATP. The NTRP is used to place players in appropriate leagues. The UTR system uses an algorithm to rate players based on recent results and is used by college coaches. The ITF and ATP rankings are based on tournament points and are for professionals.
When a player is new to the USTA system, they can complete a self-rating survey to be issued a self-rated NTRP rating. Within the Adult tennis league season or for a tournament that a player enters, the match play is recorded by the USTA. At the end of the year these results are used to calculate each player’s NTRP rating for the next year.
