World Tennis Number (WTN) Information
  • The ITF World Tennis Number (WTN) provides a global standard for players. It is a 40-1 scale, with 40 being a beginner player and 1 being an elite professional.  This scale is for all players, regardless of age, gender, or ability.  Players have separate ITF World Tennis Numbers for singles and doubles. ITF World Tennis Number was developed by the International Tennis Federation (ITF). The ITF is the international governing body of tennis that works with national associations worldwide to support the growth of the sport.

  • All recorded scores from USTA leagues and tournaments will contribute to your WTN rating.

  • WTN ratings are updated weekly.

  • All Flex League players will need a WTN in order to sign up. If you do not already have a WTN rating, then the USTA Flex app will prompt you to self-rate before joining a league.
