We are excited to partner with OrangeCoach to provide our unified rating and event management system to make it easier to facilitate even more competitive, fulfilling tennis in clubs and communities.” By adopting the UTR Powered by Oracle system, OrangeCoach members can now compare and track players using a single, unified rating that is borderless, ageless and genderless. UTR’s tournament management system will allow OrangeCoach members to organize events and easily set draws and tournaments based on player UTRs, and automatically add match results towards the players rating for an accurate, real-time view of player skill level. “Our goal is to provide our members with the world’s most innovative tools, technology and services to support their professional development and grow tennis in their communities,” said Sven Groeneveld, OrangeCoach Founder and ATP/WTA Coach. “I believe Universal Tennis and the UTR Powered by Oracle system can be a standard for all of tennis and positively impact the game for players, coaches and organizers worldwide.” To see the full press release, please visit this link: http://myutr.com/utr-partners-with-orangecoach For more information on OrangeCoach, please visit www.orangecoach.com
