      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.
  • Men's Doubles Day
    • The object for Men’s Doubles Day is for men of equal level to come for a social game of doubles or singles. After tennis the men often  have lunch. Players do not have to participate each week but sign up when they can play.

      • Level: 3.5 and higher players.
      • Day: Tuesday and Thursday
      • Time: 10:30 am-12 pm
      • Courts: 1 and 2
  • Women's Morning Tennis
    • Women's Friday Morning Tennis 9am-11am

      Womens Friday morning tennis is every Friday from 9-11 am and ALL levels welcome to join. The object of Women's Morning Tennis is for players just starting to play matches and/or wanting to play against other players at the club in a fun social environment. Players will play with different partners set up by the Women's Morning Tennis captain. If more than 2 courts are needed regularly then the Tennis Directors may allocate more courts for the event. When a 7 Corner Mixer is played at the University Club, Women's Morning Tennis is cancelled.

      7 Corner Mixers

      The 7 Corner Mixers include 7 of the local clubs that all come together for a round robin social play for players at the 2.5 and 3.0 levels. These are great opportunities for players to play a doubles or singles match in a non competitive and friendly environment. Mixers will be set up by the Women's Morning Tennis Captain and Tennis Directors. Mixers can use up to 7 courts and are played on Friday mornings. Every club host at least 1 match and the season runs September to May.
