Universal Tennis Rating is a relatively new format for tennis play that gives each player a rating between 1.00 and 16.50. Most of the tournaments are meant to be co-ed and not divided by age. This allows players to compete against new players and expand their match play experience. Some UTR’s will have age minimums, so make sure you check before signing up. These are ideal for the Junior High and High School players. Give Gerald at HEB Tennis Center a call for more information about the next UTR Tournament!
