Please review the following points before proceeding to the steps below to appeal your NTRP year-end rating or self-rating:
  • If you do not see the option to Appeal Rating Level, this means you will need to complete a NTRP Leagues Self Rate
  • USTA Section League Coordinators review self-rate appeals once they are submitted. The approximate turn around time is 3 weeks. You will receive an email once a decision is made
  • Before you attempt to appeal, please make sure you are using a supported browser and your browser is ALLOWING pop-ups from TennisLink. We recommend the use of Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari and Internet Explorer browsers
Auto-appeals of computer ratings:
  • Once submitted you will receive an instant decision based on the National criteria and guidelines. If your rating meets the criteria it will be granted; if it doesn't it will be denied
  • Granted appeals cannot be reversed. Do not submit an appeal unless you are sure you want to appeal
  • If your auto appeal is denied, there is no further appeal that exists. Medical appeals cannot be filed to move UP. If you appeal DOWN is denied the only other possible appeal is to submit a medical appeal if you have a permanently disabling injury that occurred after your league play was complete
Note:  If you have any questions about NTRP ratings or the status of your appeal, please contact your USTA Section League Coordinator directly. They are your best point of contact for any NTRP rating questions. If you do now know who to contact, you can find the information by going here
