At Webber Courts we use the USTA and NTRP skill rating system to place players in the proper category and
skill level of  tennis play.

If you are not rated you may place yourself by reading below and determining which level best represents your
playing abilities.

A. Begin with 1.5.  Read all categories carefully and then decide which one best describes your present ability
level. Be certain that you qualify on all points of all preceding levels as well as those in the level you choose.
B. When rating yourself assume you are playing against a player of the same gender and the same ability.

General Characteristics of Various NTRP (National Tennis Rating Program) Playing Levels
(Wheelchair players please see note below)

1.5
You have limited experience and are working primarily on getting the ball in play.

2.0
You lack court experience and your strokes need developing.  You are familiar with the basic positions for singles
and doubles play.

2.5
You are learning to judge where the ball is going, although your court coverage is limited.  You can sustain a
short rally of slow pace with other players of the same ability.

3.0
You are fairly consistent when hitting medium-paced shorts, but are not comfortable with all strokes and lack
execution when trying for directional control, depth, or power. Your most common doubles formation is one-up,
one-back.

3.5
You have achieved improved stroke dependability with directional control on moderate shots, but need to develop
depth and variety. You exhibit more aggressive net play, have improved court coverage and are developing
teamwork in doubles.

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.

4.5
You have developed your use of power and spin and can handle pace. You have sound footwork, can control
depth of shots, and attempt to vary game plan according to your opponents.  You can hit first serves with power
and accuracy and place the second serve.  You tend to over hit on difficult shots. Aggressive net play is common
in doubles.

5.0
You have good shot anticipation and frequently have an outstanding shot or attribute around which a game may
be structured.  You can regularly hit winners or force errors off of short balls and can put away volleys.  You can
successfully execute lobs, drop shots, half volleys, overhead smashes, and have good depth and spin on most
second serves.

5.5
You have mastered power and/or consistency as a major weapon. You can vary strategies and styles of play in a
competitive situation and hit dependable shots in a stress situation.

6.0 to 7.0
You have had intensive training for national tournament competition at the junior and collegiate levels and have
obtained a sectional and/or national ranking.


7.0
You are a world-class player.

Players in Wheelchairs:
Players in wheelchairs should use these general characteristics to determine their NTRP skill level.  The only
differences are as follows:  Mobility: while players in wheelchairs may have skills that would normally provide
them a certain rating, the mobility factor suggests that when competing against able-bodied players, they should
participate at an NTRP skill level that provides for competitive rather than compatible play.  Serving ability:  Due to
the nature of the player’s injury or disability, a powerful serve may not be possible.  In this case, it may be more
realistic to self-rate below 4.0 as service strength becomes key beyond this level.

Many tournament players in wheelchairs have already received an NTRP rating. Wheelchair players should check
with players whose skills match their own before determining their rating.  The very best world-class players in
wheelchairs have an NTRP rating in the low 4.5s.
