Xpoint and UTR

We use Xpoint Sports which will be of benefit to all of our juniors and giving guidance on grading for play in our competition and other competitions they may play in.

This online system will allow players to input their own scores online post match. 

It also means that results through the Xpoint system will contribute to a players Universal Tennis Rating (UTR).

UTR is calculated by an algorithm using a player's last 30 eligible match scores from the last 12 months. 

The results will typically be visible on the UTR platform within 14 days of the match results being entered into Xpoint. Please head to the Xpoint Sports website, familarise yourself with this program and you must keep your profile up-to-date.

Emails for this comp will be sent from noreply@Xpoint Sports. Occasionally, we will send information from info@northwestsydneytennis.com.au

UTR Updates:  Updates to UTR are handled automatically by the Xpoint platform and Oracle Corporation. NWST cannot affect the speed at which match results are updated on the UTR website. Please be patient.
