7_21_appeal
USTA League contacts are available to assist you with any concerns you may have about your automatically-generated NTRP rating. Whether its a medical setback or a competitive dispute, you have the opportunity to appeal your rating to the level you feel most suitable.

AUTOMATED APPEAL GUIDELINES

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.

SELF-RATE APPEAL GUIDELINES

An individual must play at their self-rating or higher. 
 
Only a player logged into their USTA Account may appeal their rating.
 
If you wish to appeal your self-rating UP choose your desired rating and submit; your appeal up will be automatically granted.
 
However, once you select UP and click SUBMIT at the bottom of the appeal page your request is final.  You cannot go back.
 
If you wish to appeal your self-rating DOWN please choose your desired rating and click SUBMIT at the bottom of the page.
  • You will be required to fill out a background history form. Click SUBMIT and the form will be directed to your section. 
  • Your section’s NTRP Self-Rate Appeal Committee will review your information and you will be notified by your section if they Grant or Deny your appeal.

MEDICAL APPEALS

  • Permanent disabling injury or illness occurring after year-end ratings were achieved (with supporting documentation.) 
  • Must be submitted separately in writing.  
 
NOTE: NTRP Computer Ratings are good for 3 years (2 years for those aged 60 or older during the League year.)
