What are NTRP Ratings?


National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) is a classification system developed in 1978 that identifies and describes the general characteristics of thirteen levels of tennis-playing ability.


New players are able to self rate. A self-rating is an entry rating level determined by the new player or a player re-entering the Adult or Senior Division with an M (mixed) or T (tournament) rating, based on questions asked in the TennisLink registration process. All players must enter league tennis with a valid computer rating or self rate using TennisLink.


All players are then re-rated based on a calculation done after each match. This is called a dynamic rating. This rating may change with each match played by the player.


After a tennis year has been completed, year-end rating will be issued. A year-end rating is a NTRP level assigned at conclusion of the league championship year that reflects level of ability. A player’s year-end rating shall be used to enter leagues during the following year and will be valid for up to three years for players 59 or under or two years for players 60 and over or until another rating is generated. These NTRP ratings will be available on Tennislink around December 1st. A minimum of three matches in qualifying leagues or NTRP tournaments opted-in for are needed to generate a year-end rating.
