The USTA. Every week I receive at least one email from Universal Tennis informing me of upcoming tournaments in my area.

The basic tennis rating system (NTRP) has been in place for a long time and is used by the USTA. There have been other ratings systems like UTR that have evolved over the years and aim to create a worldwide consistent set of ratings for players of all abilities. Then there is the international rating system.
USTA’s National Tennis Rating Program is similar to UTR because it is also a computer generated score, however, the criteria that it uses to calculate is drastically different. Your current NTRP rating is calculated by using your year end rating, your opponent’s rating, and the margin of victory or defeat.

In recent years, UTR has emerged as the metric system of tennis worldwide. It is 16-point scale used to measure a player’s game, skill and capability.
Unlike the USTA that uses a rating scale of 1.0-beginner to 7.0-advanced to gauge your playing level, UTR has a rating scale of 1.00 to 16.50. Why the big scale? Because there is a wide variety of players out there!
