Universal Tennis (UTR) and Angie Kerber Academy are pleased to announce a new partnership, under which the Academy will adopt the UTR Powered by Oracle global rating system as its official player metric and leverage UTR’s integrated tournament and event management platform to organize all its tennis events.
Now, all players at the Angie Kerber Academy will have UTRs, allowing them to accurately compare themselves to players around the world, understand their level, track their progress, find events and even get recruited for college. The Academy’s professionals and coaches will leverage UTR’s fully integrated TMS/EMS to organize creative and competitive level-based events, set draws and upload scores all via one simple unified system.
“No doubt that UTR will be a great tool for our coaches to measure and track player development,” said AKA International Relations Advisor, Marcin Matysik. “We look forward to working with UTR which is revolutionizing tennis – AKA has to join in and be part of this movement! What’s more, we believe that ‘level-based play’ positively impacts players who are instinctively inspired to get better and better.”
