The USTA defines player levels on a scale from 1.0 to 7.0 in its National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP). A condensed version appears below. Take a few moments to determine your likely playing level. 1.0 Just starting to play tennis 1.5 Has limited experience and is still working primarily on getting the ball into play. 2.0 Needs on-court experience.
The National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) is the official system for determining the levels of competition for the USTA League Program. As a competitive, or at least serious, tennis player, you should know where you fall on this rating scale.
Canada uses the Rogers Ranking system to determine a player's rating. Although the methodology for how a player's rating is calculated is very different from the USTA, the resulting ratings (2.5, 3.0, 3.5, etc.) translate exactly to the USTA NTRP rating number.
Jump to the 4.5 level if you are able to confidently get points off of your first serve and place your second serve with accuracy, and if you also are hitting with power and spin, and able to dictate pace. Place your skills at the 5.0 to 5.5 level if your game includes a variety of strategies, power, precision and consistency.
Level 4.0. You have dependable strokes, including directional control and depth on both forehand and backhand sides on moderate-paced shots. You can use lobs, overheads, approach shots and volleys with some success and occasionally force errors when serving. Rallies may be lost due to impatience. Teamwork in doubles is evident.
