FAQ: Player Rankings


What are the new rankings on the player profile?

The new rankings on the player profile stats tab show where a player stands relative to their peers in verified singles play. All rankings are gender-specific. A player can have a maximum of four rankings:

  • Country Ranking by Age Category
  • Country Ranking 
  • World Ranking by Age Category
  • World Ranking

Let’s take a look at an example: 

Here we have the ranking of a male singles player. The home country rankings are displayed on the right side and world rankings are displayed on the left side if applicable.

What is an Age Category? 

The age category tells which peer group the player is associated with. There are four possible age categories:

  • Junior (ages 14 - 18)
  • College (on an active college roster)
  • Pro (has an ATP/WTA ranking)
  • Adult (club/league/recreational and age 19+)

Note: If a player’s age category is unknown, the default setting is adult.

Why does a profile not display any rankings?

If a profile does not display any rankings, that means the player has no verified singles matches in the last 12 months or the player is under age 14.

Why do some players have two rankings and other players have four rankings? 

If a player’s country is unknown or doesn’t belong to the list of pilot countries, only two of the four rankings will appear. The pilot countries are the United States, Australia, France, and United Kingdom.

Note: More countries will be added on a rolling basis. Contact your national federation and recommend a Universal Tennis partnership!

How often do the rankings update?

The rankings update once per day, in the early morning Eastern time (GMT-5).

Are the rankings a free feature?

Yes, all users are able to see the player rankings.

Where can I see the full list of players that make up a ranking?

The full list of players for a given ranking is not yet available. However, top player lists for major age categories (U14, U16, U18, High School, College, Pro) can be found on the universaltennis.com Player Spotlight (https://www.universaltennis.com/top-players).
