UTR stands for Universal Tennis Rating. It is a global tennis player rating system intended to produce an objective, consistent, and accurate index of players’ skill in the game of tennis.UTR rates all players on a single 16-point scale, without regard to age, gender, nationality, or locale of a given match.The UTR rating is based on a player’s historical match results. The more matches a player plays, the more accurate their UTR rating will be.UTR ratings are updated daily, so players can track their progress over time.

  • How does UTR work?

    • The UTR rating is calculated using a complex algorithm that takes into account the following factors:
      • The results of the match
      • The ratings of the players involved in the match
      • The location of the match
      • The surface of the court
      • The age and gender of the players
    • The UTR rating is a weighted average of up to 30 of a player’s most recent match ratings. Only matches within the last 12 months count toward a player’s UTR rating.
  • Benefits of UTR:

    • UTR is a more accurate and objective way to measure tennis skill than traditional ranking systems.
    • UTR ratings are used by coaches, tournament directors, and college tennis programs to match players of similar ability.
    • UTR ratings can help players track their progress over time and identify areas where they need to improve.
    • UTR ratings are also used to create national and international rankings for players of all ages and abilities.
  • How to get a UTR rating:

    • To get a UTR rating, you must first create a profile on the Universal Tennis website.
    • Once you have created a profile, you can enter your match results into the system.
