Determine your rating:

A. Begin with 1.5. Read all categories carefully and then decide which one best describes your present ability level. Be certain that you qualify on all points of all preceding levels as well as those in the level you choose.

B. When rating yourself assume you are playing against a player of the same gender and the same ability.


General Characteristics of Various NTRP Playing Levels

1.5 Beginner: You have limited experience and are working primarily on getting the ball in play.

2.0 Beginner: You lack court experience and your strokes need developing. You are familiar with the basic positions for singles and doubles play.

2.5 Beginner: You are learning to judge where the ball is going, although your court coverage is limited. You can sustain a short rally of slow pace with other players of the same ability.

3.0 You are fairly consistent when hitting medium-paced shots, but are not comfortable with all strokes and lack execution when trying for directional control, depth, or power. Your most common doubles formation is one-up, one-back.

3.5 You have achieved improved stroke dependability with directional control on moderate shots, but need to develop depth and variety.
