Although tennis remains a very safe sport to play at both community and professional levels, the current restrictions and our priority of ensuring the health and safety of everyone involved, has led to the cancellation of a number of upcoming national and international tournaments through to the end of the year.

No Australian Ranking Tournaments will be held prior to 31 December 2020.

UTR State Performance and Participation tournaments will continue in the absence of Australian Ranking Tournaments until the end of the year and the Australian Rankings will continue to remain suspended until Australian Ranking Tournaments can return.

The Universal Tennis Rating (UTR) Explained

While competitors in UTR Pro Tennis Series events are seeded according to their latest UTR, players of every level can compete locally and count globally through the global rating system.
UTR provides a real-time view of a player’s true skill level. Having a UTR enables you to track your progress, find level-based play, and expand your tennis network to play with people across age, gender and tennis silo.

Every tennis player can have a UTR, providing an accurate measurement of a player’s true skill level, whether you are a recreational, junior, high school, college or pro player. UTR is calculated by an algorithm using a player’s last 30 eligible match scores from the last 12 months. For each eligible match, the algorithm calculates a match rating and a match weight; a player’s UTR is the weighted average of all the match ratings.


Improving Your UTR

Compete Well – You can improve your UTR by winning more games than expected, regardless of whether you win or lose the match and whether you play higher- or lower-rated opponents. Compete well and try to win as many games as possible; this is the best way to improve your UTR.
Play Often – The more matches you play, the quicker your UTR will reflect your current form. It is also best to play against opponents who are close to your rating regardless of whether they are above or below you.
Be Patient – Since UTR is a rolling weighted average, the effect of new results is slightly lagged. Your UTR may take time to reflect a recent outcome.
