Q: How can I appeal my Year-End Rating?
A: All Year-end ratings must be appealed electronically on TennisLink.
On the Leagues home page, go to Find NTRP Rating Info. You must put in your USTA number in order to be offered the “Appeal Rating” link.
Q: Who can appeal?
A: 1) Computer-rated players – Up or Down
2) Mixed Exclusive – Up or Down
3) Self-rate who wish to move UP only
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.
Q: How long do appeals take?
A: All appeals will be instantaneous. You will receive immediate notification from the system whether your appeal is granted or not.ADVERTISEMENT
Note: The section office does not have the authority to override the TennisLink system regarding your rating or your appeal.
Automatic appeals by 60 and 65 & over players will be granted unless the player’s year-end rating exceeds the clearly above level mark. Players whose appeals are granted will continue to receive “A” ratings and be subject to Dynamic Disqualification.
Q: Are there any limits on who can appeal down?
A: 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.
