How does it work?
Players are rated on a 16 point scale with 2 decimal places
The higher the UTR the better the player
The UTR algorithm only looks at 2 aspects of the match:
- Who did you play
- What was the score
If you play an unofficial match such as a practice match, you can also input the information ie. the score, the opponent and the date, and the UTR algorithm will evaluate your results and adjust your ranking accordingly.
Setting up a UTR account is very simple. All you have to do is visit the UTR website (myutr.com) and press the “Join” button on the top right corner. From there the website will guide you and help you set up your UTR account. All you have to do now is to go play tournaments and get your UTR ranking as high as possible.
Here is a useful link that busts some of the myths on UTR.
Please do read this carefully because it’s clear that the algorithm is not only complex but also dynamic.

We have decided to introduce UTR Verified doubles matches into our weekly sessions.
We have noticed over the past few months that most of our players struggle with their transition games and we would like to give them the opportunity to practice valuable net-game skills in a fun but competitive way.
You will not need to sign up ‘with’ a partner, but we will include some doubles, as well as singles, matches into these sessions so more kids will be able to play and we can hopefully build your doubles ratings too.
We have created a simple video to help you navigate through the sign-up procedure.
Once you’ve done this a few times, it gets easier. We promise!
