USTA FAQs regarding Coronavirus and COVID-19

2020 NTRP Year End Rating FAQs

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, all USTA programming was suspended for a significant part of the year and play has resumed only sporadically, and not in all Sections and Districts.  In 2020, 80% of all USTA League Championships (including 100% of USTA League National Championships) have been canceled. These cancellations and other Covid-related prohibitions have resulted in 62% fewer USTA League matches played through August 3, 2020 as compared with August 3, 2019, and have had additional impacts on access to tennis and participation in other USTA programs, including NTRP Tournaments.  While the NTRP system remains sound, these facts coupled with thorough deliberation have led the USTA to make the difficult decision not to run or publish year-end NTRP ratings for 2020.  However, matches played will continue to calculate toward a player’s rating and will be used in the 2021 year-end rating calculation and publication.

 

What rating will I use to play in the USTA League 2021 Championship Year and/or 2021 NTRP Tournaments?

Players will continue to use their most current, valid NTRP rating for play in 2021 USTA Leagues and Tournaments. 

 

My rating is expiring, how do I proceed?

 If your rating has expired before registering, you will need to self-rate.

 

What does this mean for self-rated players?

Players who were self-rated will retain that self-rating for 2021 play.  A player's self-rating is valid for two years.

 

What does this mean for players who were dynamically disqualified (DQ’d) during 2020?

The DQ process for self-rated and computer rated appealed players will continue to be in effect for 2020 and 2021, as the players’ matches continue to be part of nightly calculation.

 

Is the appeals process changing?

Standard appeals processes will exist just as they do today.  

 

What does this mean for appeals that were granted or denied for 2020?

All appeals that were granted or denied in the 2020 championship year will remain valid for 2021.

Suspension Period FAQ

1. What is the USTA’s stance on play during the COVID-19 pandemic?

7. Are the USTA National Campus or USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center open? 

  • The USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows, N.Y., is currently closed to the public. The facility’s Indoor Tennis Center has been converted to a temporary hospital for COVID-19 patients, while Louis Armstrong Stadium is being utilized as a commissary to facilitate the creation of meal packages that are being distributed to patients, workers and New York City school children.
  • The USTA National Campus, in the Lake Nona area of Orlando, Fla., will remain closed for play and instructional opportunities through May 31.
  • Any patron who wishes to cancel participation in a scheduled activity should contact the specific location for refund information. These policies will be in effect pending additional guidance or directives from each local governmental agency and the CDC. The USTA will continue to monitor and assess conditions to make future determinations about all activities at these facilities.

2020 USTA League National Championships

1. Why were the USTA League National Championships canceled this year?

  • Due to the COVID-19 virus, the USTA has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 League National Championships. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but the health and safety of all of those who play our sport is of the utmost importance. 
     

2. Who decided to cancel Nationals?

  • Based on the recommendations and feedback from USTA staff and volunteers, USTA sections, the USTA Medical Advisory Panel and the USTA Board of Directors, a collaborative decision was made to cancel the 2020 USTA League National Championships.
