Rate Your Game

Find your tennis rating using National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) categories. The League uses the Purity of Competition rule to manage players playing level. The league is an actively managed program. We use the Purity of Competition Rule to adjust players mid-season if need be, so don't worry about being stuck in the wrong level for a whole season.

NTRP Rating Verbal Description and League Comments
1.5 - 2.0 You could describe yourself as a beginner. You know how to serve and return points but you haven't developed any game consistency. You hopefully have learned how to keep score. You basically love the game and want to meet up with other people who have the same passion.
Admin Comments: Recreational Division, About 5% of the players are in this division. You're a beginner. We'd like all Beginner's to exclusively participate in the Tennis Partner Program until they gain enough experience to participate in the leagues.
2.5 Needs on-court experience. Has obvious stroke weaknesses but is familiar with basic positions for singles and doubles play. 2.5 Learning to judge where the ball is going although court coverage is weak. Can sustain a short rally of slow pace with other players of the same ability.
Admin Comments: Recreational Division, About 10% of the players are in this division. You're an advanced beginner in this category. We hope the minimum ability players have is to be able to serve and maintain a couple stroke rally.
3.0 Fairly consistent when hitting medium-paced shots, but is not comfortable with all strokes and lacks execution when trying for directional control, depth or power. Most common doubles formation is one-up and one-back.
Admin Comments: Skilled Division, About 25% of the players are in this division
3.25 You're in-between 3.0 and 3.5 Skill rating.


Admin Comments: Competitive2 Division, This division appears when the city's league is large enough and we have enough returning players. The addition of this division allows the league to fine tune the levels and the matches tend to be closer. Playoff qualifiers play in the Competitive playoffs.

3.5 Has achieved improved stroke dependability with directional control on moderate shots, but still lacks depth and variety. Starting to exhibit more aggressive net play, has improved court coverage and is developing teamwork in doubles.
Admin Comments: Competitive1 Division, About 40% of the players are in this division. The majority of non-trained adult players are at this level.
3.75 You're in-between 3.5 and 4.0 Skill rating.
Admin Comments: Advanced2 Division, This division appears when the city's league is large enough and we have enough returning players. The addition of this division allows the league to fine tune the levels and the matches tend to be closer. Playoff qualifiers play in the Advanced playoffs.
4.0 Has dependable strokes, including directional control and depth on both forehand and backhand sides on moderate shots, plus the ability to use lobs, overheads, approach shots and volleys with some success. Occasionally forces errors when serving. Rallies may be lost due to impatience.
Admin Comments: Advanced1 Division, About 15% of the players are in this division. Rusty players should start off in the Competitive Division first. Scores are closely monitored by the league for Purity of Competition Rules. The NTRP rating is just too easy, a 4.0 player has some strokes that very good. You are a solid player.
4.5 Mastered the use of power and spins and handles pace, has sound footwork, can control depth of shots and is beginning to vary game plan according to opponents. Can hit first serves with power and accuracy and place the second serve. Tends to over hit on difficult shots.
Admin Comments: Elite Division, About 5% of the players are in this division. Most players need to earn their way into this division or have proof of 4.5 rating.
