Tennis ratings are used to classify players by experience and knowledge of the sport. There are 13 different ratings ranging from 1.0 to 7.0. As the player gains knowledge about grips, strokes, managing the court and forcing errors they will move up in the tennis ratings.
The 4 main tennis levels are the NTRP, UTR, ITF, and ATP. The NTRP is used to place players in appropriate leagues. The UTR system uses an algorithm to rate players based on recent results and is used by college coaches. The ITF and ATP rankings are based on tournament points and are for professionals.
