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.

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.

 

Current and Recent Past Players

If you are a returning player and did not play in our 2022 comps, you must also complete a grading session. If you are unsure, please call the Pro Shop.

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 from playing outside of our comp. Please contact the Pro Shop for clarification.
