Self Rating Details

July 10, 2023

To join a team, all players must have a rating.  As a new or returning player (after 3 years if you are 59 and under, or 2 years if you are 60 and over) your rating is determined by answering a series of questions about your rating and playing history. Please watch this short video about NTRP Ratings to answer most of your questions.


How to Self Rate

1.    Login to TennisLink with your email and password

2.    On the USTA League Homepage beneath "Find NTRP Rating Info," click on the button that says, "Self Rate"

If you have trouble with the "self-rate" button, contact


3.    Complete the Player Self-Rate Questionnaire.

  • If you get the rating you want, select “continue.” 
  • If not, you can appeal it either up or down.  To appeal down, you will be directed to fill out a “Self Rate Appeal Form." 

NOTE: You must appeal your self-rating BEFORE any matches are played.  If you choose to play a match before appealing, you must play at least TWO matches before your appeal will be considered.
