Xpoint and UTR

We have introduced using a program called Xpoint Sports which will be of benefit to all of our juniors and giving correct 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. Occassionally, we will send information from info@northwestsydneytennis.com.au

UTR Updates:  Please be patient, as there are many intermediaries in the process of updating UTR results. NWST are unaware when results will be published

Your membership number will be emailed to you to complete your registration. New players must complete two online forms – both a grading registration and competition registration form. These forms are available at the beginning of each term. Please take notice of the session time you are registering your child in.

Players are allocated a division based on their grading, so all new players must attend a grading session.

Players who have played in our comp as recently as Term 1 2022 do not need to attend a grading session. You only need to complete the online registration form if your standard has changed significantly. Please contact the Pro Shop for clarification.
