Automated AppealsClose
 
A player or their captain/coordinator may appeal the player's computer-generated rating.
The decision on the appeal will be automatically determined based on the criteria listed below.
Please note that no national championship benchmark rating may be appealed the first year received except for medical reasons.
Medical appeals require supporting documentation and must be submitted in writing.
 
APPEAL REQUESTS
  • When appealing UP, the player's rating is compared to the player's current play level to see if it is within range.
  • When appealing DOWN, the player's rating is compared to the next play level below the player's level to see if it is within range.
 
Reasons an appeal may be granted:
YEAR-END APPEALS
  • All players, except national benchmarks, whose rating is within .05 above or below NTRP level, will be granted.
  • Any player who will be 60 years of age or older during the league year and whose rating is within .10 above or below NTRP Level will be granted an appeal.
 
MIXED EXCLUSIVE APPEAL
  • For ongoing Mixed Exclusive players, all of the Year-End Appeals LISTED ABOVE.
  • For new players with 4 or fewer dynamic ratings may be granted an appeal if it falls within .20 above or below NTRP level.
 
ELECTRONIC SELF-RATE
  • Self ratings can be automatically appealed UP to a higher level.
  • Self rating can only be requested to be appealed DOWN to a lower level by completing a Self-rate Appeal Form online.
 
EARLY START DYNAMIC APPEALS
  • For ongoing Dynamic appeals, all of the Year-End Appeals LISTED ABOVE apply.
  • New players whose dynamic rating is within .10 above or below level with 2 or more dynamic ratings will be granted an appeal.
 
MEDICAL APPEAL
  • Permanent disabling injury or illness occurring after year-end ratings were achieved (with supporting documentation.)
  • Must be submitted separately in writing.
 
NOTE: NTRP Computer Ratings are good for 3 years (2 years for those aged 60 or older during the League year.)
An individual must play at their published rating or higher.
