Every tennis player can have a UTR Rating to know their level and find fun, competitive play wherever they are. Some players also have a Verified UTR Rating.
So, what’s the difference?
1. Verified UTR Rating reflects your results from only verified events.
2. UTR Rating reflects your results from a broader range of event types, including casual play, verified matches, and practice matches.
Only results from verified third-party event providers and tournament directors count towards Verified UTR Rating, including:
Events that count towards Verified UTR Rating are heavily vetted to ensure the integrity of a player’s Verified UTR Rating. This is why scores from non-verified events do not count towards Verified UTR Rating.
If you participated in any of the events listed above in the past 12 months, you will have a Verified UTR Rating, which will be displayed by default on your player profile with a blue checkmark.
All players in the Universal Tennis system prior to October 1, 2018 automatically have a Verified UTR Rating, because their rating only tracked results from Verified Universal Tennis Events as described above.
*No paid Verified HS events, whether sanctioned or not, can be run through the free Universal Tennis for High School Product. For a provider to run a paid Verified event, High School or otherwise, they must apply to Universal Tennis directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
