We are excited to share that USTA will adopt a simplified nationwide structure, which will create a standardized system and greater consistency for our players, parents, coaches, tournament directors and officials. The new structure will utilize seven levels of events, ranging from Level 7 (Intermediate) to Level 1 (National Championships) and a universal ranking system that will distribute points consistently across the country.
The 2020 Shadow Ranking Philosophy was created to help facilitate the transition to 7 levels of ranked tournaments. The USTA will be importing results from existing 2020 tournaments that count for National and Section ranking points and converting them to the new ranking point table.
This nationwide system will provide consistent tournament levels and standardized tournament operations for all events—regardless of location—replacing a current system that is greatly dependent upon the region.
Net Generation PlayTracker is for players aged 5-10 and their parents to track progress at USTA competitive events, all in one place. The new Net Generation PlayTracker will help parents and players navigate their development progress, replacing the current stars and trophies system. Now, players will collect points on an engaging PlayTracker after playing in USTA Team Challenges, USTA Junior Team Tennis, and USTA Junior Circuit programs
