Tennis NSW Launches New Tournament Series in Partnership with Universal Tennis Rating

Posted: 27 Jun 2020
Tennis NSW is excited to announce that it will launch a new tournament series for both junior and senior players across New South Wales this July.

The Tennis NSW Super Series will commence on 5th July at various venues in NSW. The tournaments will be split into a juniors and seniors event that will enable competitive match play opportunities for players of all abilities.

What is unique about these events is that they are the first of its kind in NSW, with the introduction of Universal Tennis Rating (UTR). UTR is the most accurate global index of tennis skill available to players. UTR rates every tennis player regardless of age or gender. This allows for players to understand their level of skill and performance better and allows tournament organizers to ensure that players are matched based on level based play. Over 1.6 million players from across 200 countries have a UTR, including our very own World No.1 Ash Barty.

The Tennis NSW Super Series will be sanctioned by Tennis NSW and will operate out of various affiliated clubs and venues across the state over the coming months, making it one of the first tennis clubs in the country to host a UTR event. The event will be a fixed draw with 32 competitors.

Tennis NSW CEO Lawrence Robertson says, “With the current temporary suspension of all TA sanctioned tournaments, then the team here have worked tirelessly in recent weeks to put something in place for those who enjoy competitive play”.

We have been watching the growth of UTR for some time and now feels like the right time to make full use of it in delivering a new competitive experience for our players across NSW.

The NSW Super Series will cater for both junior and senior players and I’m delighted that NSW are the first state to launch a series of events aimed at this level of player.
