Ratings, Rankings, Competition – How the Junior System all Works
Our competition programme is part of the national tennis development system, organised by the LTA, and this provides a great framework for all players to develop their tennis.
To play in teams, tournaments, and matchplays all Juniors need to have a British Tennis Membership which gives you a rating that you can improve as your game develops. Get your British Tennis Membership here.
What are the benefits of Tennis ratings? – Tennis ratings operate in order to attract and retain young players in competition. Players can make progress through the levels whether they win or lose and are rewarded for participation as well as success.
How does my child get a Tennis rating? – To get a Tennis rating your child needs to join the British Tennis Membership scheme.
What Mini Tennis rating do players start with? – Players are assigned a level 4 rating in the ball colour relevant to their age.
How will players know when their rating increases? – Players will be able to see their results by logging in to the British Tennis Members area. Once players have met the criteria to increase in rating they will be sent an email letting them know about their rating change. Players should keep a record of their own match results.
How many matches do I need to play to move through the different levels of the ratings system? – To move from a level 4 to a level 3, in each ball colour, players need to compete in 6 matches. Moving from a level 3 to a level 2 is based on playing a further 20 matches and moving from a level 2 to a level 1 based on playing a further 40 matches and winning (at your own rating or better) 20 matches.
