How UTR works
UTR rates the level of players on a single point scale between 1.00 and 16.50 (based on past match results without regard to age or gender). Three factors go into the rating: Competition (strength of opponent), the score (based on % of games won) and recent history (last 30 matches within 12 months).

One match result is all it takes to receive a projected UTR. After approximately five matches, the rating becomes official. As matches are played and entered into the system, a player’s UTR will increase or decrease over time. Most players already competing in Australian ranking tournaments should have a UTR rating.

There are many benefits of UTR but most importantly it enables the facilitation of competitive matches between similarly rated players.
- It provides players with separate ratings for doubles & singles.
- Players get to play competitive matches at their level
- Players get rewarded for every game that they win. A loss to a higher rated player (where the score was competitive – e.g. 6-4-6-4) translates to the loser’s UTR increasing.
