If you are a player that wants to participate in an NTRP division and you do NOT have a current NTRP rating, you will need to acquire a self-rating on Tennislink under the USTA Leagues tab and in the column “Find NTRP Rating Info” and click on Self Rate.
After receiving your new self-rating in Tennislink you MUST contact the tournament director of the tournament you are entering to make sure of proper placement in an appropriate NTRP division.
