About Millersville University UTR MatchPlay
How to Sign up for a UTR Event:
Players will receive Universal Tennis Rating (UTR) credit for all matches played.
Player UTRs will be used when selecting and seeding players for the Tournament and Divisions/Draws.
Registration fee: $45 (includes both singles and doubles matches)
Minimum number of matches for each player in this tournament: A least 3 singles matches and at least 1 doubles match
Maximum number of players for this Tournament: 64
Match, set and game scoring format:
Singles: Best of 3 sets with super tiebreaker in lieu of third set, No-Ad Scoring
Doubles: 8-game Pro Set, Regular Scoring
All matches will be created based ONLY on level of play, regardless of age or gender, to provide better developmental opportunity and better opportunity to positively impact one’s UTR. High school players, college players, juniors, adults, males, and females WILL ALL COMPETE AGAINST EACH OTHER based solely on LEVEL OF PLAY.
Draws will be Level-Based and will provide very tight ranges of UTR within each draw so be sure to provide valuable match experience and opportunity to improve UTR's. Every effort will be made to accommodate the level of each player.
Coaching will be allowed by a professional coach who has checked in as a player's coach at check-in. Coaching can happen at changeovers and set breaks, within the regular pace of play. Coaches are not permitted on-court. Parents who are not professional coaches should take into consideration that it could be better to just watch and cheer rather than get involved in a coaching capacity. Coaching that is outside of the boundaries set by the USTA/ITA will be discouraged by the Tournament Director.
With UTR Events there is no need to shop for tournaments, strong draws, weak draws, points per round considerations, etc. There is no reason to wait to sign up and find out who else may decide to play. Your placement in a level-based draw will be based on your UTR. You will get a set number of matches in a draw that will increase the likelihood that you have matches both good for your development and good for your opportunity to improve your UTR. In the event that there are not enough players within a near enough UTR range for this to be possible, then the Tournament Director will not place you in a draw that isn’t good for you and YOUR FEES WILL BE REFUNDED.
