Adult Tennis Competitive & Recreational

UTR at the Aspen Hill Club

We are very excited to be a UTR partner Club! UTR is fabulous because it will determine a rating for all players. As you already know, Aspen Hill Club is continuously looking for new and innovative ways to improve our tennis programming and create unique play opportunities for our players. As such, AHC will be incorporating UTR (Universal Tennis Rating) into our programming and creating new and exciting tournaments, events, and match play opportunities for all of our players.

The beauty of the UTR rating is that it is the same scale for everyone. A UTR rating is on a scale of 1 through 16.5. This differs from a USTA NTRP rating score which goes up to 7.0 with different scales for male and female players. Using a UTR rating, Roger Federer has a rating of 15.68, Serena Williams is a 12.88, and one of the Club’s top male members is a 7.99. Everyone is on the same scale! This number is entirely different from a USTA NTRP rating. The UTR number allows us understand levels in a better way and a way to compare a male rated 3.5 USTA to a female player who is rated 4.0. This will help us all have more competitive matches and events. Having the most competitive matches possible is our goal with our UTR programming.

UTR ratings are determined by two things, your opponent’s RATING and the SCORE against them. If I had a close match against someone rated much higher than me, my rating will go UP. If I only won a few games against someone below me, my rating would drop a little bit. UTR’s algorithm has other factors such as length of the match and how long ago the match was. With these bits of info, UTR gives us a rating!

We ask that you set up a FREE UTR profile by visiting the UTR website at www.myutr.com/join. Once you create your FREE profile, please search for Aspen Hill Club and request to be a part of our UTR Club! The entire process will only take a few minutes.

Currently our Men’s Singles Match Play, Winter Adult Tennis Ladder matches and Kings and Queens of the Court program results are being entered into UTR and our members are seeing their UTR numbers climb! You can also enter your own scores from spot time into UTR as long as both you and your opponent(s) have a FREE UTR account! We look forward to offering more UTR playing opportunities in the coming months!
