An individual must play at their published rating or higher.
Appealing will NOT reveal your rating in 100th of a point.
You will receive an automatic response advising whether Granted or Denied.
Once you select UP or DOWN and click SUBMIT at the bottom of the appeal page your request is final. You cannot go back.
- When appealing UP, the player's rating is compared to the player's current play level to see if it is within range.
- When appealing DOWN, the player's rating is compared to the next play level below the player's level to see if it is within range.
Only a player logged into their USTA Account may appeal their rating.
Please note that no championship benchmark rating may be appealed the first year received except for medical reasons.
