Using your ITF World Tennis Number (WTN)

After creating your ITF World Tennis Number (WTN), you can use this to find suitable opponents wherever you want to play. By using the WTN directory, you can search other opponents, check where they rank and then set up a game. 

Starting from 40 (lowest) to 1 (highest), the WTN scale includes all players from the world's elite to a complete beginner playing their first match. 

In the UK, the WTN will be displayed to one decimal place.

The WTN scale is age and gender neutral – so any two players with a similar Number can have a competitive match.

The WTN will be issued to players who are 10 years or older. Any player who signs up for LTA Advantage membership will receive a ITF World Tennis Number at the start of the year in which they turn 10.
