2018 Year-end NTRP Ratings
Official NTRP ratings will be available on TennisLink tomorrow (Nov 29).

The USTA is aware of other websites that suggest they provide 'ratings' or player statistics and skill analysis. Any alleged rating-related information available on these other sites is not endorsed by the USTA, is not accurate, and cannot be relied upon.

Click Here for information about appeals. All appeals have to be submitted online. Appeal decision is immediate based on whether your rating is in appeal range or not.
  • Granted appeals cannot be reversed.
  • If appeal UP is denied, there is no further appeal that exists. Medical appeals CANNOT be filed to move UP.
  • If appeal DOWN is denied, the only other possible appeal is a medical appeal. Read information about medical appeals here.

All other questions can be emailed to Jason Rogers.

2019 Summary of Adult League Changes

  Coman tiebreak procedure changes to standard tiebreak
  New “Plus” Divisions Added to CTA Leagues
  Seeding for Final Rounds at District Championships
  ITA Mixed excluded from mandatory league championship rescheduling conflicts
 


Denver-Metro NTRP Days of Play
In the last two decades, USTA Colorado has maintained a consistent approach to scheduling and organizing league tennis, specifically, days of the week NTRP divisions are scheduled to play.

In 2018 USTA Colorado’s steadily growing league program achieved its highest level of player participation in its history. The organization’s continuous growth puts Denver on course to lead the nation in league participation by area. Our increase in player participation necessitates some changes in order to meet the needs of players and facilities.

The changes benefit players and facilities in several ways:
  • Balance the number of league matches played per night.
  • Reduce the number of staggered league matches
  • Have more courts available for league match reschedules, lessons and facility programming.
  • Facilitate opportunity for league growth.

Coman tiebreak procedure changes to standard tiebreak
The Coman tiebreak procedure will no longer be used for any league matches in Colorado. Instead, all set tiebreaks and match tiebreaks in local leagues and district championship matches will be played using the standard tiebreak (play 6 points on a side and then switch sides).

New “Plus” Divisions Added to CTA Leagues
All straight NTRP “CTA” leagues (excluding CTA Women’s 2.5 league) will offer “plus levels.” The highest offered NTRP level at District Championships will be designated as the plus (+) NTRP level. This can differ for the men’s & women’s divisions. Since all CTA leagues are 3-line leagues, teams participating in designated plus (+) divisions will be able to have two players on their roster from the next higher NTRP rating level (only one can play in each team match). Adding plus (+) divisions will give players the opportunity to play in leagues they would otherwise be excluded from.

Seeding for Final Rounds at District Championships
Consistent with USTA National, Semi-final rounds at District Championship events will now be seeded. The match ups for the semi-final rounds will be as follows: 1 vs 4 and 2 vs 3. League seeding will only take place at semi-final rounds of District Championships. In situations where a wildcard team advances to the semis, it is possible that teams from the same flight could play each other again in the semis.

ITA Mixed excluded from mandatory league championship rescheduling conflicts
Teams participating in ITA Mixed matches will no longer be able to request to reschedule their match due to a league championship conflict. This change is only for the ITA Mixed League since the majority of the league season takes place on dates with league championship events. Since ITA Mixed matches are played on Sunday at 12pm and 3pm, this should minimally affect players playing in league championships.

Return to top
In addition to the above changes, a few minor changes were added to the Colorado District Rules and Regulations. USTA Colorado will have all changes published in early 2019.

Players and facility coordinators are the driving force for the changes we make to continue to enhance our league program, so we appreciate everyone who sent feedback to us throughout the year.

We hope you had a great league season and we look forward to seeing you on the courts in 2019!
