About ATC UTR Match Play
*****SIGN UPS ARE CLOSED FOR ALL DIVISIONS: NON-RATED PLAYERS AND PLAYERS WITH A UTR UNDER 3.5 MET OUR MAX OF 48 PLAYERS IN THAT DIVISION. PLAYERS ABOVE A 3.5 UTR, WE HAVE MET OUR MAX OF 20 PLAYERS IN THAT DIVISION. WE HOPE TO DO THIS AGAIN SOON! STAY IN TOUCH!*****

Players (ages 11-18) will receive Universal Tennis Rating (UTR) credit for all matches played in ATC's match play event to be held every Monday in the month of August. Dates are 8/7, 8/14, 8/21, and 8/28.

Match Times:
4:30PM-6:00PM - UTR's 3.49 and below (those not yet rated will be asked to come during this time until we can determine an approximate rating through match play
6:00PM-7:30PM - UTR's over 3.5

We will advise your player's exact playing time (4:30 or 6:00) before the first session on August 7th.

Competition each week will be based on the player's current UTR. Player UTRs are available at universaltennis.com. A UTR subscription is required to search and view player ratings on the UTR system, with pricing starting at forever free for UTR Basic. The UTR Premium Plus allows subscribers access to search and view college team profiles.

Don't have a UTR yet? No worries! This match play will help create one for you! In the meantime, we will make an initial estimation about your UTR and work through it based on results.

Each Monday, every registered player will get a minimum of 1/maximum of 2 short matches vs a player with a UTR about 1.0-1.5 points above or below them. The goal is to create competitive matches (not one-sided) for all players. The scores will be reported following each match, then sent to UTR at the end of the month.

Under this format, winning is not required in order to improve a player's UTR- competing as well as the player is able and winning games against a stronger opponent still helps toward building a higher UTR.

A player will get a minimum of 4/maximum of 8 matches during this match play event if attending all available dates.

Match, set and game scoring format: 1-2 matches per Monday session, 9 total games per match, no-ad scoring.

Cost: $30 to be paid directly to the Adams Tennis Complex front desk - player is not officially registered until fees paid!
(breaks down to a $5 registration fee for UTR and $25 program fee to ATC)

Register on this site (no payment will be taken here)- then be sure to stop by ATC and fill out one of their local program forms and pay $30 to secure your spot.

To Register: Each player needs to have a unique UTR events account (using a unique email address). This registration for the UTR Events site is separate from registration on the regular UTR website. If you need help with registration, please contact Jill Speight at 615/653-8020 or email jjspeight@firstfleetinc.com.

All matches will be played at the Adams Tennis Complex/Outdoor Courts - all outdoor courts will likely be utilized. Players may be crossing the street to play on the "old" courts. In case of rain, we will attempt to reschedule the match play.

**Note: Players with a higher UTR (ex: 6+)... if we don't feel like we have enough participation within 1.0-1.5 of your UTR (above/below) to give you competitive matches, we will refund your fees. However, we suggest you go ahead and sign up rather than waiting to see who else does. That may encourage other players at your level to participate!

About UTR: Universal Tennis Ratings provide tennis players worldwide a common scale to determine their level of play. The 16-level scale (from beginners to elite world-class professionals), precisely and reliably determines individual players’ ratings based on actual match results without regard for age, gender or where the matches are played. The Universal Tennis website allows visitors to view more than three million tennis results. College Tennis coaches utilize UTR ratings for recruiting, for scouting opponents, and also to track the levels of their current players. The ITA currently uses UTR ratings to assist with selections and seedings for select regional and national events.
