        WHAT AFFECTS A USTA RATING?

        Computerized NTRP ratings are affected by opponents, doubles partners and match results. Team position played, actual number of wins and losses or team standings do not affect computerized ratings.

        Ratings are calculated for each match played and then averaged to determine a final rating.

        Two players can play the entire year together, exclusively. At the end of the year when the ratings are published, the two partners can have different ratings. The players in question compete at the 3.5 level. When the new ratings are published, player A is still a 3.5; player B becomes a 4.0. How could this be possible?

        At the start of the year, player A had a rating of 3.26 (3.5 NTRP level), player B had a rating of 3.41 (3.5 NTRP). The improvement of each player was exactly the same: .13. Player A's final rating (based upon the previous season match results) was: 3.26 + .13 = 3.39. Player B's final rating was 3.41 + .13 = 3.54.

        Even though there was only a difference of .15 between the two players, when they both improved .13, it would be enough to push player B to the next (4.0) NTRP level. This situation can happen at any of the NTRP levels.

        Included in End of Year rating calculations are all USTA Senior and Adult Leagues' results, as well as NTRP tournament match results.
