2017 YEAR-END NTRP
USTA LEAGUE RATINGS RELEASED
November 30, 2017
Please note, players need to have participated in a minimum of three matches against other rated players to generate a year-end computer (C) rating. Players who did not meet this minimum will continue to play with their prior computer year-end rating, or current self-rating.
Players can check their own individual rating if they login to their TennisLink account: https://tennislink.usta.com/Dashboard/Main/Login.aspx.
New rating will have a date of 12/31/2017.
You can use this link to access ratings for all 2017 Southwest players: http://tennislink.usta.com/Leagues/reports/NTRP/AdvancedSearch.aspx
Use the following criteria:
o Championship Year: 2018
o Section Name: Southwest
o District: (select the district you would like to search)
You can narrow your search by making further selections for leagues, flight, gender and level. ADVERTISEMENT If you want to see the players who have moved up, select the league and flight you are interested in, then when selecting level, choose one level up to see the players who have been bumped.
2017 Year-End Rating Appeal Process
The Automatic Appeal process is done online through TennisLink and is the only way to appeal a Year-End Rating. Appeals are granted only for players whose rating falls within the allowed margin and matches played.
ONLY A PLAYER may appeal his/her 2017 Year-End Rating. To file an appeal, you must visit TennisLink.
You will then be prompted to enter your USTA # and password.
If you have password issues, please contact USTA membership at 1-800-990-USTA (8782).
Once you are logged in, underneath your rating (upper right corner) you will see an “appeal rating” link. Click this and follow the steps.
You will be notified immediately as to whether your appeal is granted or denied.
2.07: Only National Championship players will not be allowed to appeal their rating down for one year after participating in a National Championship. All other Championship players will be allowed to appeal their ratings up or down. The appeal will be granted if they meet the appeal criteria.
2018 League FAQ's
Q: I am currently playing on a Fall Early-Start team. My Year-End Rating went up. Can I still continue to play with my team through the end of the season and advance with my team to championship play?
A: 2.05B3(b) - Southwest Option
Players who are found to have valid computer ratings, after the appeal process, that place them above the NTRP level at which they are competing may continue their participation at the lower NTRP level UNLESS their year-end rating reached the clearly above level mark. Players who are found to be clearly above level must adjust to that new NTRP level as soon as they are notified. Prior team matches played will stand.
