SINGAPORE IMPLEMENTS A NEW RATING SYSTEM TO RATE ALL TENNIS PLAYERS

With a growing base of tennis players in Singapore, the Singapore Tennis Association (STA) feels that that there is a need to grade the level of players in Singapore so that all recreational and competitive tennis players, including the players in the inter-club tournaments will have an international rating. And when is that going to happen? STA aims to implement the ITN by the end of next year. This means that effective January 2006, all tennis players who want to participate in the local tournaments must have an ITN. Players in clubs will be graded by the clubs' resident coaches while players in clubs with no resident coaches and players who do not belong to any clubs will be rated by STA's panel of coaches.

ITN WORKSHOP FOR NROC COACHES

STA will be organising an upcoming ITN workshop for NROC registered coaches to be ITN assessors. Kindly contact the STA office for more information.

WHAT IS THE INTERNATIONAL TENNIS NUMBER?

The ITN is an international number that represents a player's general level of play. The rating system based on ITN will provide a method of classifying skill levels of tennis players' globally which in turn can help:

• to encourage more playing of tennis.

• to unite tennis under a common rating language.

• to implement a national tennis rating system in Singapore .

• to promote a variety of tennis competition formats, which are linked to the tennis rating system.

• to give more options for finding compatible playing partners and therefore more enjoyable competitive play.

• to facilitate the movement of all levels of players between countries.

Under this system players will be rated from ITN 1 – ITN 10. ITN 1 represents a high level player (holding an ATP/WTA ranking or of equivalent playing standard) and ITN 10 is a player who is new to the game.

In time it is hoped that every tennis player in Singapore will have an ITN.
