NOT SURE ABOUT YOUR LEVEL?
OTK is following the U.S. Tennis Association NTRP rating system.
The rating categories are simply here to guide you. You may find that you play above or below the category, depending on your competitive ability. The category you choose is not meant to be permanent and may be adjusted as your skills change or as your match play demonstrates the need for reclassification.

Potential strengths: Points are won and lost off the serve more often; better able to cover weaknesses; beginning to develop a weapon around which their game can be built.
NTRP LEVEL: 5.0 (Advanced plus)
This player has good shot anticipation and frequently has an outstanding shot or attribute around which their game can be structured.
