COVID-19 safety plan in place.
Ensure you are social-distancing when possible, hand sanitising and always adhering to guidelines.
Players - no handshakes, fist bumps or high fives and, instead, use racquet taps. Please regularly visit the COVID-19 page and like our ISLTA JB Facebook page for updates or changes to playing and spectator conditions.
UNIVERSAL TENNIS RATING (UTR)
UTR is a global rating system supported by Tennis Australia that provides a single, objective, consistent and accurate measurement of skill level for tennis players for all ages, geographies and gender. A player’s UTR is a number between 1.00 and 16.50.
Players having a UTR will assist Junior Branch in grading accurately and also to run tournaments. It will also ensure players are matched up to play opponents of a similar rating and therefore standard.
ISLTA Junior Branch rewards good sportsmanship with the Good Sportsmanship Awards. Prizes presented at the end of each comp (summer and winter) at the Finals presentations. Fill out the nomination section at the bottom of your Result Sheet.
