Tennis Level

The National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) is the official system for determining the levels of competition. The primary goal of the program is to help all tennis players enjoy the game by providing a method of classifying skill levels for more compatible matches.

The rating categories are generalizations about skill levels. You may find that you actually play above or below the category that best describes your skill level, depending on your competitive ability. The category you choose is not meant to be permanent, but may be adjusted as your skills change or as your match play demonstrates the need for reclassification. Ultimately your rating is based upon match results.

Players must rate themselves. Read all categories carefully and then decide which one best describes your present ability level. Be certain that you qualify on all points of all preceding levels as well as those in the level you choose.
