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 match play day, 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 recorded on this site 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 5/maximum of 10 matches during this match play event if attending all available dates.
Match, set and game scoring format: 1-2 matches per session, 7 total games per match, no-ad scoring.
Cost: $29.43 total
$4.43 UTR fee to be paid at online registration

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.
Please copy/paste this link into your web browser and let us know which dates your player will be available for UTR 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!
