Junior NTRP Self Rate Process

To get a rating you will first need a USTA account. Click here to create an account!

After you obtain a USTA account, then you can complete the self-rate process. In order to self- rate, you must be logged in to TennisLink. The self-rate process is only available when you’re registering for an event that requires ratings.

If players don’t have a junior rating, they can self-rate in three simple ways:

  1. Self-select your own level by comparing yourself to players you compete with regularly who have a rating.

  2. Select a rating on the self-rate form. On the self-rate form you will be asked to select your rating based on rating descriptions. You will have the opportunity to adjust the suggested rating level before saving it. Click here to review the Ratings Characteristics.

  3. Complete a quick and easy questionnaire. After filling out the simple questionnaire, you will receive a suggested rating level. You will have the opportunity to adjust the suggested rating level before saving it. Click here to preview the questionnaire.
