Why do I need a Competitive Player Profile?
Players competing in Australia need a Competitive Player Profile to simplify the process of entering endorsed Events and Leagues. So, whether you play for fun at your local club or professionally on the global circuit, your Competitive Player Profile will ensure you receive the best playing experience for your level.
Why do I need a UTR Rating?
The UTR Rating provides a real-time view of your true skill level. Having a UTR Rating enables you to track your progress, find level-based play, and expand your tennis network to play with people of other ages and genders. UTR Ratings also provide a great benefit and efficiency to your league administrators, helping them with grading and team management.
How do I know my data is stored securely if Universal Tennis operates under international law?
Like many other organisations, we use a variety of service providers in the course of our business, both located in Australia and overseas. We share some personal information with Universal Tennis to enable your accounts to be linked, under contractual arrangements in place with Universal Tennis that require it to meet and comply with Australian privacy law.
Why do I need to provide my date of birth?
Why is a unique email address required for all players when activating their UTR Rating?
A unique email address is required when activating a player’s UTR Rating to establish individual player profiles and ratings for all players.
Universal Tennis is built around the Profiles; this is the webpage that can show a player’s history, picture, preferences, etc.
Profiles are activated by a user who can customise and manage all aspects of this Profile.
Each player requires their own account at universaltennis.com and their own unique email login (Example: if you’re a family with three tennis-loving kids, each child will need their own account and own email.)
Hint: Free email addresses to create accounts can be made at sites like gmail.com, hotmail.com. Just make sure you remember the details that you use to create the account.
