Ranking Band Tournament

Important Information for the Countdown 2 Christmas Tournament Tour

The Tournament Tour has nine days of tournament tennis.  This comprises of 3 events of 3 days for players of different playing standards.  Players will be divided into tiers depending on UTR ratings.

All players will be scheduled to play seven matches in each tournament.  It is not an option to play in the singles event only.  The tournament tour believes in player and skill development and players are expected to compete in both draws should they enter the tournament.

All singles draws will be made of a 16 player compass draw.  This will mean all players are guaranteed four quality matches at their level of play.  More info on a compass draw can be found here. 

The aim of this tournament tour is to have a large number of quality matches over a short period of time.

Each player will be able to complete his/her singles matches in a morning session or an afternoon session.  Doubles matches will be played back to back.  

Day 1:  2 x singles matches (start of the 16 player compass draw)
Day 2:  3 x doubles matches (complete an 8 team compass tournament)
Day 3: 2 x singles matches (the completion of the singles compass draw)

All players are welcome to play in one or two, or all three of the tournaments.  You will not be expected to play all three tournaments equalling nine days unless you would like to.  

We are excited to be have the following UTR events:

📈 Get Rated

All tennis players can have a UTR, which is a real-time evaluation of skill level based on your actual performance. If you’ve played a sanctioned or competitive match, you may already have a UTR, and you can activate your profile. Otherwise, get rated by easily posting a score from a casual hit or by playing matches. Then use your UTR to understand your level, find play and track your progress.

⚖️ All Players, Same Scale

Whether you are a junior, high school, college, pro, adult or recreational player, all your matches count toward your UTR. UTR is the global rating for all tennis players, regardless of age, gender or nationality, on a scale of 1-16.5. Three factors go into the rating: 1) Competition: your opponent's UTR 2) Score: Games won 3) Recent history: up to last 30 matches in the past 12 months.

🔎 Get Noticed By College Coaches

Colleges utilize UTR to evaluate prospective players; an up-to-date UTR player profile is an opportunity for you to showcase yourself to college coaches. UTR College Fit allows players to find prospective colleges based on UTR range and where you would play in the lineup. Then you can "follow" colleges of interest to get on the radar of college coaches.
