Exciting news - the ITF World Tennis Number (WTN) has been launched to players! This new and dynamic rating system will replace the current LTA rating system for all tennis players aged 10+ in Britain.
The introduction of the WTN will help to grow tennis by making it easier than ever to find an evenly matched opponent and enjoyable competitions. This is key to retaining players of all ages and abilities in tennis and will therefore help you in your role as a licensed official, organising competition at all levels of the game.
Sign up to one of our 1 hour Parent and Player webinars and join the LTA Competitions Team in going into more detail about the Number. Sign up to learn more about the principles behind the Number, how a player’s Number may change and support you in understanding what your number means.
