What is UTR?

UTR (Universal Tennis Rating) is the world’s most accurate tennis rating system that measures players of all ages, genders, skill levels and locations across the same scale. Think of it like a golf handicap, but for tennis.

The UTR Platform, anchored by the rating, is making it easier for all tennis players and fans to connect and showcase their game.

Join and discover players, tennis clubs, tournaments, colleges, academies, leagues, high schools, federations, tournaments and events from 200 countries on the world’s largest global tennis community. There is no cost to join and get your rating.

How does the rating work?

UTR gives you an accurate, real time perspective of your tennis skill level. It moves with you as you play. Your UTR is based on the singles and doubles matches you have played in the last twelve months, looking at the strength of your competition and games won.

All it takes is one match to begin establishing your rating. If you’ve played in any USTA matches, you already have a rating and can activate it on UTR.
