What is NTRP?
The National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) is a classification system that identifies and describes general characteristics of tennis-playing ability. The NTRP General Characteristics Guide outlines the abilities of each level from 1.5 (beginner) through 7.0 (touring pro). Generally, USTA League offers programs for the 2.5 through 5.0 levels. See General & Experienced Player Guidelines and NTRP General Characteristics.
What is a Self-Rating?
A (S) Self Rating is an NTRP entry-level rating generated upon a new player or a player re-entering the USTA League Adult Division with a M (Mixed) or T (Tournament) rating, after completing the USTA Self-Rate Questionnaire. To participate in USTA League or NTRP Tournament events, all players must have a valid Computer Rating or Self-Rating.
Do I need to Self-Rate?
If you fall under any of the following categories, you may need to self-rate.
- New players who want to play USTA Leagues or NTRP Tournaments
- Players who want to start playing Leagues or NTRP Tournaments again after a period of inactivity
