UTR is the universal standard for all tennis players. It’s based purely on tennis results, and is age & gender blind. Think of it like a golf handicap, but for tennis. If you’ve played USTA, you may already have a UTR – see what it is!
“UTR has given tennis players something they have never had: a simple, clear rating system that, like a handicap in golf, provides an objective, results-based measure of one’s skill. That opens opportunities that had never before been available in tennis…”
