To file an appeal, please first read the FAQ. There are different processes for each type of appeal.
I am not listed, why? This list only contains those players who were either bumped up or down. If you are not listed that means you maintain your previous rating. To search for someone NOT listed here, please go to http://national.usta.com and link to the search page.
What do these ratings include? These ratings include only league results, excluding mixed doubles. It does not include sanctioned tournaments.
If I am a 4.0 player and get an early start rating of 4.5, can I still play in my league? Yes, you can finish out the season, as well as attend the sectional and national championships. You may not, however, begin a new season, such as the fall league. These ratings do not effect the Super Seniors league. In 2011, the Combo League is not going by mid-season ratings. Combo will be using the 2010 Year-End Ratings.
What level can I play at sanctioned tournaments? If you are a 4.0 player, but get a 4.5 early season rating, you can still play sanctioned tournaments as a 4.0 until the end of year ratings are posted. If you were a 4.0 player, but got a 3.5 early season rating, you must continue at the 4.0 until those same end of year ratings are in effect for Sanctioned Tournaments.
What does "Last 4" mean? Those are the last four numbers of the persons' USTA Number. This is to ensure you are finding the correct player.
