UTR AT PARAMOUNT TENNIS: What is UTR? UTR is a global rating system that promotes fair and competitive play across the tennis world. All players, regardless of age, gender, geography or skill level, are rated on a same scale between 1.00 and 16.50 based on actual match results. Having a UTR rating enables you to track your progress, find level based play, and expand your tennis network to play with people across age, gender and tennis silo. Paramount Tennis Club has teamed up with UTR allowing us to host UTR verified events. We have created a digital platform on the UTR website that you can join for free by clicking here. If you don’t already have a UTR account you will need to set one up, also at no charge. By doing this, you will receive communication of all the UTR events that Paramount Tennis Club will be hosting. We will have both singles and doubles events coming up in the very near future. Here is the list of events for February in Medina:
