WTN and UTR


ITF World Tennis Number (WTN)

The WTN is a global rating scale that allows tennis players to find the right playing partner or program. It is a scale between 40 and 1, with 40 being a beginner player and 1 being an elite professional. This scale is for all players, regardless of age, gender, or ability. Players will have a separate WTN for both singles and doubles.

If you have results in the system but are unable to view your WTN on your tournaments profile page, it is likely due to you opting out of sharing your match results data with the ITF back in 2020. To check this please:

  1. Visit the Tournament site and log in
  2. After you have logged in, click on your name on the top-right and select “Account Settings” from the drop-down menu
  3. Scroll down to the “Consent” section
  4. If you would like to receive a WTN make sure it says “No”. If it says “Yes” click “Edit” near the right side of your screen, select “No” and click “Save”

You should see your WTN appear on your profile within 1-2 weeks. If it does not appear, please email tournaments@tenniscanada.com


Universal Tennis Rating (UTR)

Universal Tennis began the system over 15 years ago and today there are over 800,000 players worldwide with a UTR rating!
Players are measured on the same rating scale as touring pros such as Novak Djokovic (UTR 16.25), Leylah Fernandez (UTR 12.37), Denis Shapovalov (UTR 15.61) and Iga Swiatek (UTR 13.19), as well as thousands of US college athletes and hundreds of thousands of recreational players!

The Verified Universal Tennis Rating (UTR) index is intended to be a reliable and accurate method of rating a player’s tennis skill. UTR rates all players – men, women, and children – on a single 16-point scale (with two decimal places, eg: 11.29). This works for players globally, regardless of their skill level; from beginners to top professional competitors. The UTR’s algorithm calculates a player’s rating from their last 30 eligible matches played within the previous 12 months.

The main data points are the percentage of games won (not simply the won/lost result), and the opponent’s rating. Each match played generates a rating; a player’s UTR is a weighted average of all eligible matches.

UTR uses a single scale for both male and female players, that embraces athletes of any age. It is a common scale that makes it easy to mix genders and age groups for close, enjoyable matches.

 

All OTA sanctioned tournaments receive UTR and WTN ratings. It takes up to 3 weeks to update to a player’s UTR profile. If you do not see the rating of your match, please email tournaments@tenniscanada.com
