ELECTRONIC SELF-RATE ON TENNISLINK
Self-ratings can be automatically appealed UP to a higher level.
Self-ratings can only be requested to be appealed DOWN to a lower level during the self-rate process, or when attempting to register for a team with a lower NTRP rating than their assigned self-rate.
To file an appeal, you must choose the “Appeal Rating” link at the bottom of this page and you will be taken to the Tennislink login page. You will be prompted to enter your USTA # and password. Once you are logged in, underneath your rating, you will see an "appeal rating" link.
Click this and follow the steps. You will be notified immediately as to whether your appeal is granted or denied.
