UTR at the Aspen Hill Club!

Posted on

The Tennis Department is extremely excited to announce that we have teamed up with Universal Tennis Rating (UTR)! You likely have heard about UTR while watching tennis on TV— and now you will be part of it!

 

The Club is going to offer programs partnered with UTR. Being a part of UTR is going to mean that YOU will be able to more easily play with people of your level— and that is what we ALL want! As you beat players with a higher UTR, your own UTR number will increase. We will input scores from our Club programs into the UTR system and these scores will be part of the global UTR community.

 

Dave Fish, Hall of Fame Coach with over 30 years as Head Men’s Coach at Harvard University, and co-founder of UTR, does a great job of quickly summing it up “UTR-based events yield more close, competitive matches. And, UTR makes it possible for any player, anywhere, to find a level of competition that’s right for them – enough challenge to satisfy, but not too much to overwhelm.”

Introduction: UTR Powered by Oracle is a global rating system that promotes fair and competitive play across the tennis world. All players, regardless of age, gender, geography or skill level, are rated on a same scale between 1.00 and 16.50 based on actual match results.

 

Benefits of UTR: 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.

 

Who has a UTR?: Every tennis player can have a UTR. UTR provides an accurate measurement of a player’s true skill level, whether you are a recreational, junior, high school, college or pro player.

 

Verified UTR vs UTR: UTR counts all results, including matches played in verified tournaments/events and non-verified matches. Verified UTR counts match results played in only verified tournaments and events.

For example, USTA league/tournament matches count toward Verified UTR and UTR. Casual/practice matches and self-posted scores count only toward UTR.

 

How is UTR calculated?: 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.
