Now that you've found your Universal Tennis event, let's go over a few important parts of an event page that you'll want to check out when shopping for an event when viewing both from the web and the mobile app.
1. Verified Status - If you want an event's results to count toward your Verified UTR Rating, you'll want to check its verified status, denoted by the green checkmark at the top of the event page next to the title.
2. Overview/Description - On the lower half of the page, you'll find the Overview Tab (from the web) or Description (from the app), where you'll see a description of the event, its location, and the event organizer's contact information.
3. Players Tab - Next to the Overview Tab is the Players Tab, where you'll see the list of players registered for the event (if the organizer has decided to make the list public). Note that if there are multiple divisions, you can switch between players registered for each using the arrow next to the division name. This tab is only available if viewed from the web only.
4. Draws Tab - Once the organizer has published draws for the event, you'll be able to view them by clicking the Draws Tab (found next to the Players Tab). Again, if there are multiple draws, you can switch between them using the arrow next to the draw's name or clicking the draw's name from the app.

Pro Tip: Here are some questions you may want to know the answers to before registering:
- Is this a level-based tournament, or are competitors divided into categories based on age and/or gender?
- If it is a level-based tournament, am I guaranteed matches with players with UTR Ratings within 1-1.50 of my own? If that doesn't happen, will my entry fee be refunded, or do I risk being flighted with players with UTR Ratings more than 1.50 above or below mine?
- What's the target UTR Rating level of the tournament? Does the event specify what level players should consider entering?
- What's the entry fee?
- When will match times be released?
- What's the maximum size of the draw?
- What's the scoring format (ad/no ad, standard six-game sets or eight-game pro sets, best two of three)?
- Will there be officials? If so, how many?
- Is coaching allowed? If so, when and how?
We've found that players have great experiences when they're fully informed about event details. Remember, if you have any questions about an event after reviewing its page, you can always contact the organizer directly using the phone number or email address they've provided!
