Rankings always refer to tournament play. Updated rankings are published annually at the start of the calendar year, and reflect how players compare in a given division after a full year of competition.
All player rankings will be calculated nationally in a points-per-round ranking system as part of the USTA’s Adult Tournament Alignment. Points are distributed based on the event’s level assignment (L1-L7), draw format, and the round a player reaches in that draw.
National Standing Lists (NSL) are published monthly and calculate player standings based on a rolling 52-week period. NSLs may be used for seeding tournaments, among other factors.
Both Year End Ranking Lists and National Standing lists can be filtered by section and district.
