Attention all high school tennis coaches, players and parents - get your high school tennis matches to count for UTR!
Today, there are more than 2,000 high school coaches and 14,000 high school players across the United States who are posting match scores on UTR, claiming their profiles, getting their players rated, and introducing competitive, level-based play to their high school tennis events. And the movement is growing.
"The use of UTR elevates high school tennis in the junior tennis world. UTR offers players the recognition they deserve for competing in high-level high school matches." - Cory Aldridge
It only takes 5 matches for a player to get rated. When your players have a UTR, they can understand their current true level, accurately track their progress and find more opportunities.
"The use of UTR elevates high school tennis in the junior tennis world," says Cory Aldridge, Carroll Senior High School Tennis Coach & 2016 USPTA Division Coach of the Year. "UTR offers players the recognition they deserve for competing in high-level high school matches."
UTR has become part of the fabric of Texas High School Tennis, with over 600 Texas High Schools registered on UTR. These high school teams across the state are using UTR to run tournaments and report match scores, including dual match results.
"When players see their rating, they get excited and want to work to increase it," adds Bobby Kleineke, Rudder High School Head Tennis Coach and Texas Tennis Hall of Famer.
"Kids deserve to have their high school matches count towards their player rating," says Troy Simonek, Midway Head Tennis Coach. "UTR has taken an old system of running tournaments and developed a new path for success and development."
High school players are the future of American tennis. Join the movement and help us keep them in the game.
