New to UTR? If you’ve played USTA matches, tournaments or sanctioned events, you have a UTR and can track your progress real-time.

UTR Powered by Oracle is an algorithm-based system for tennis that allows anyone to identify, measure, track and develop the level of a player. Every player receives a rating between 1 – 16.5 that reflects their level of play. Three factors go into the rating: player competition (ie strength of opponent), the score (based on games won), and recent history (last 30 matches played within 12 months). Players can use their UTR to know their skill level and find hitting partners and events within their levels. Coaches can use UTR to evaluate player ability and organize events based around skill level, rather than age or gender.

UTR Powered by Oracle has strategic partnerships with Tennis Channel, Oracle, OrangeCoach, Les Petits As – Le Mondial Lacoste, Cliff Drysdale Management, IMG Academy, International Tennis Hall of Fame, Good to Great Tennis Academy, Kim Clijsters Academy, and many others. UTR Powered by Oracle is the official rating system for Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA), World TeamTennis (WTT), Professional Tennis Registry (PTR), and the United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA).

Indoor Season: October 1 – June 27, 2021

Dear TIA Friends & Families,

We are gearing up for our 2020-2021 Indoor Season and look forward to assuring a safe experience for tennis development and exercise. We have received many questions regarding the details of the Indoor Season, and below I have summarized a few of the most popular questions and answered them accordingly.

ARE TIA’s SAFETY GUIDELINES WORKING? 

Since our reopening on May 25, all the measures we have taken to provide a safe haven for tennis have been enforced. We have not had any players nor employees contracting or showing any symptoms of COVID-19. New York State and Connecticut continue to show very low numbers at this point; the situation seems to be somewhat contained in our area. However, we are vigilant and completely prepared to comply with contact tracing protocols and isolation procedures if we were to face that situation.

WHAT ARE THE REAL FACTS ABOUT AIR CIRCULATION IN AIR STRUCTURES? 

We have three domes, our East and West domes are connected by a tunnel and two air circulating motors, our North dome is isolated and has its own air circulating motor.

Our East and West domes combine for a space of 1,200,000 cubic feet, while our North dome is 400,000 cubic feet. These massive areas allow for a substantial volume of air that is constantly diluted and replaced with fresh air. Our air-circulation systems run 24/7 throughout the indoor season; this maximizes air circulation and air replacement. Our air structures will be receiving the highest air pressure the dome allows to ensure complete air change roughly every 60-90 minutes, and more importantly, air at the 10-ft. level from the ground, where players are breathing, to be replaced roughly every 15 minutes.

These facts, coupled with the natural social distancing that our sport allows and our safety guidelines, make TIA’s modern air structure system an extremely safe environment for tennis.

HOW WILL YOU HANDLE TIA’s INDOOR SPACES DURING THE INDOOR SEASON? 

Our INDOOR SAFETY GUIDELINES cover many of the important factors about our daily procedures; however, we’ve highlighted a few of the most asked questions. In our clubhouse, we continue to frequently service our HVAC systems to include the highest rated filters available in the market. Our lounge area WILL NOT offer seating nor viewing during the indoor season to minimize traffic to and from the tennis courts. Parents will drop off players at our entrance door.

Our staff and players are required to wear face coverings and to observe distancing when in our “off-court” indoor spaces. “No-touch” sanitizing stations are provided throughout the facility. There will be specific entry and exit pathways to minimize traffic, please click here to view ENTRANCE/EXIT MAP.

I’M HESITANT TO COMMIT RIGHT NOW, WHAT OPTIONS DO I HAVE IF YOU SHUT DOWN AGAIN? 

First and foremost, similar to the way we handled our first experience with this unprecedented situation, we will protect everyone’s financial investment and provide the best and safest tennis value under any scenario we face. If for some reason we reach a point of another shutdown, the moment we reopen all un-used value will be available for our players to use in the safest way available, and we’ll provide a generous time frame to do so for those that are not comfortable. No value will be lost. 

MY KID’S SCHOOL SCHEDULES ARE DIFFERENT THIS SEASON, WHAT OPTIONS DO I HAVE?

Many families have told us that their school systems are providing “hybrid” learning experiences, a few days in school physically and other days doing video sessions from home. Therefore, we have received more interest this year in online learning tennis schedules, most commonly known as “Homeschool Programs” which allow junior players to practice before 3pm. High Performance players use these times to train an additional 10-12 hours a week. A recreational player can also secure a morning or mid-day schedule on the days when they are available. This is type of schedule is available to ALL players of all ages and levels. Furthermore, if you have a group of family members or friends under the same scenario, feel free to create a group lesson anytime before 3:00pm. 

I HAVE A 10U PLAYER AND WANT TO BE ON-COURT (OR LOBBY) OBSERVING THE LESSON, IS THAT POSSIBLE? 

For the safety of our staff and players, spectators are not allowed on court for group lessons. However for private lessons parents/guardians are welcome on court to observe. (Masks may be requested to be worn by coaches for private lessons.). The lobby is off limits to spectators, parents and guardians until further notice.

Finally, I’d like to applaud our community for getting through what we hope has been the toughest part of this ordeal. Together, we have protected each other’s health by following our guidelines and in doing so protected everyone’s financial investment by providing a safe environment for the activity we love. I feel confident that we will have a wonderful Indoor Season, and we will adjust as necessary to maintain the well-being of our community at all times.

Look forward to seeing you all!
