TSR Level Policy

Adult Player Level Policy
All players new to Taconic Sport & Racquet (TSR) will be given a free 30-minute hitting session with a Tennis Professional.  During this session, the Tennis Professional will feed balls, play out points, and ask pertinent questions regarding your play history and USTA experience.   At the end of the hitting session, the Tennis Professional will assign a rating that fits within the play levels at TSR.


A player’s USTA rating (C) will be assigned as their TSR level.  If a USTA rating increases or decreases, the TSR rating will follow.  Please note – while Self Rating “S” is required to get your initial USTA player rating (which requires no match play history), it us not recognized as an effective method to determine skill level.  A USTA granted appeal “A” rating will not be counted until the season is completed and the USTA deems the rating a computer generated “C” rating.  In order to be recognized by rating, a match result history must be established, with a computer generated “C” USTA rating.


Mid-Season Level Adjustment
For TSR Members that would like to be re-assessed or feel that their USTA or TSR rating is not indicative of their level of play, Taconic Sport & Racquet offers a Ratings Consideration Period once a year.  Ratings Consideration Period is a two week time period over the summer in which TSR Members can submit their name for consideration.

At the end of the two week period, all names will be sent to the Team of Tennis Professionals for consideration. The Team of Tennis Professionals will work together and base decisions on observed play (Clinics, Drop-ins, Court Rentals, USTA play, Lessons, Events, etc).  Once completed, all decisions will be communicated via email and are final.
