Every tennis player can have a UTR to know their level and find fun, competitive play wherever they are. Some players also have a Verified UTR.
So, what’s the difference?
1. Verified UTR reflects your results from only verified events.
2. UTR reflects your results from a broader range of event types, including casual play, verified matches, and practice matches.
Only results from verified third-party event organizers and tournament directors count towards Verified UTR, including:
Events that count towards Verified UTR are heavily vetted to ensure the integrity of a player’s Verified UTR. This is why scores from non-verified events do not count towards Verified UTR.
If you participated in any of the events listed above in the past 12 months, you will have a Verified UTR, which will be displayed by default on your player profile with a blue checkmark.
All players in the UTR system prior to October 1, 2018 automatically have a Verified UTR, because their rating only tracked results from Verified UTR Events as described above.
*No paid Verified HS events, whether sanctioned or not, can be run through the free UTR High School Product. For an organizer to run a paid Verified event, High School or otherwise, they must apply to UTR directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
