Group Tennis Policies, Rules, Etc
Program Policy, Rules, Guidelines
Below are our group tennis lesson polices, rules and guidelines as they pertain to WF Tennis programming. If you have any questions please call our tennis department head Jeff Contreras - 254-493-0217. Wildflower Tennis Department reserves the right to change/alter any and all policies at any time.
Which Drills/Clinics Can I Sign Up For
In order to participate in our drills you must have a rating from the USTA. If you do not, please contact Jeff Contreras 254-493-0217 to assist you with this. Wildflower Tennis currently uses two different rating systems to help place players in appropriate groups. Please read the following to understand what groups you are eligible for.
"C" - Computer Rating
If you have a "C" Type Rating in your USTA NTRP player profile, this means that you may register for any drill that your rating reflects.
John Smith -------Temple,Tx -------3.5-------Type Rating C
The "C" means that John is a true 3.5 player and has earned this rating through match play within the USTA.
This means John can register for any 3.5 drill or clinic. John may not register for a 4.0 Drill. The only way for John to play up in our programming would be to join a combined drill that may say "3.5-4.0 Drill and Play". John may register for that because he is a 3.5 rated player.
3.5 Drill and Play
3.5-4.0 Drill and Play
4.0 Drill and Play
"S" - Self Rate
If you have an "S" Type Rating in your USTA NTRP player profile, this means our Tennis Professionals will place you in the appropriate group. Most often, self rating is typically overrated by a half point for players to be eligible for league play however, this is a not a C rating which means that you will placed in the appropriate group. Please contact our Head Tennis Pro Jeff Contreras for assistance 254-493-0217.
John Smith -------Temple,Tx -------3.5-------Type Rating S
The "S" means that John is a self rate 3.5 player and has not earned this rating through match play within the USTA.
This means John can't register for any 3.5 drill or clinic. The only way for John to participate in 3.5 drills is to compete in USTA Sanctioned events and earn a 3.5 Rating Type C.
3.5 Drill and Play
3.0 Drill and Play (If placed by the head tennis Pro)
