UTR Division Information
The 2023 CSO will utilize UTR ratings instead of NTRP Ratings.
UTR 1-3 | UTR 3-5 | UTR 5-6.5 | UTR 6.5-8 | UTR 8-10
UTR 1-3 | UTR 3-5 | UTR 5-7
UTR 1-3 | UTR 3-5 | UTR 5-7 | UTR 6-8
The CSO Tournament Committee strongly encourages all participants to play at their UTR level. However, 'playing up' to a higher level is allowed. You will not be allowed to play down. For example, if you are a male rated 6.65 you will not be allowed to enter the UTR 5-6.5 division
Your UTR Rating is fluid & adjusts based on all results.
PLEASE NOTE: Your UTR Rating at the tournament deadline will be used to decided what division you play in.
Doubles Divisions: Both players must not exceed the maximum UTR for that division. It is NOT AN AVERAGE.
A lot of time, effort & discussions with CSO & UTR representatives went in to finalizing our UTR divisions. If you have any further questions please reach out to CSO Tournament director Alex Dove via email.
You do not need a UTR a membership to participate in a UTR event - every tennis player already has a FREE UTR account to view your rating. If you are interested in learning more about UTR, look them up directly at www.universaltennis.com.
