Universal Tennis Rating for Australians: IMPORTANT INFORMATION

Study & Play USA endorses the UTR system, however, at present, most Australian kids do not get an opportunity to play ITF events due to proximity, finances and academic pressures. UTR has requested that Australian Ranking events be included for Australian players and the calculation of their UTR. At present, they are not included in calculations for Australians.
