ITF World Tennis Number (WTN)
The ITF World Tennis Number is a rating system for all tennis players across the world, creating a global player standard to enable more appropriate matches between players of similar levels from recreational to professional tennis. This will make it easier for everyone who plays tennis in Britain to organise and play against opponents of a similar standard.
Whether you’re playing at Wimbledon (we can dream), or just meeting a friend to play matches at your local court (much more likely), everyone’s welcome – and everyone will have their own World Tennis Number.
