USTA Florida Leagues uses the NTRP rating program so teams and players will compete against others of equal levels. Players new to the USTA League Program must self-rate by clicking the link above and answering just a few short questions. (Already have a rating? Skip this step)
A common question for new players joining USTA League is: “What level of play do I sign up for?” The USTA uses the National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP) for determining levels of competition for USTA League.
