The male and female player who plays in the most matches in 2018 will each receive a $1000 gift certificate to Second Serve Tennis Center in Metairie. Updated standings will be posted at English Turn at all events. Only Saturday Matchplay events count for the year-long race.

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 seeding’s for select regional and national events.
