Portland Tennis Center Rating Policy

Portland Tennis Center Rating Policy

The rating requirement for our classes is to ensure a safe playing environment with players of equal or similar ability. If a Professional Instructor feels that a player is not a good fit, they will let management know and we will contact the player. Our activities are offered at various levels, so the player will not miss out on the activity, they simply will be placed with similar skilled players. This is for the safety of the players and for the level of play for the classes.

Tennis Rating Definition and Purpose:

A rating is a measuring tool that indicates a person’s current playing ability, and it can be used to track progress as they develop their games. An accurate rating should give players access to level-based competition, ensuring a safe and positive experience for all players involved. Ratings are a great way to group players of similar ability together in round-robins, drills, compass draws for tournaments, and classes.

Ratings Systems used by PP&R:

1) A United States Tennis Association (USTA) rating is a numerical indicator of tennis-playing ability, from 1.5 (beginner) through 7.0 (touring pro).

2) Universal Tennis Rating (UTR) is a global rating system that promotes fair and competitive play across the tennis world. All players, regardless of age, gender, geography, or skill level are rated on a scale between 1 and 16.50 based on actual match results. UTR provides a real-time view of a player’s true skill level and enables you to find level-based play.

3) World Tennis Number (WTN) is similar to UTR; it provides a real-time skill level rating, finds evenly matched opponents, and tracks your tennis progress based on actual performance.

4) Portland Tennis Center (PTC) Pro Rating- PTC offers rating sessions with our certified Professional Tennis Instructors who are qualified to provide a real-time rating level.

The PTC Management team uses all of the rating systems, USTA, UTR/WTN, and PTC Pro Rating, and takes them into consideration for all players registering for our activities. If there are any questions, we are happy to provide another PTC Pro Rating Session to get a current skill level.

In order to register for an activity, a player must meet the minimum rating qualified for the class. Patrons who feel their rating is incorrect or inaccurate are welcome to discuss it with our management team.

PTC ratings may be updated every six months. Appealed USTA ratings will be added to the rest of the rating information for that player and a final determination will be made by our Professional Instructors and Management.

How many courts can I book per day?

Can my friend or partner book the court and I play again?
No. Each tennis player is allowed to appear on one reservation and court per day.

What options do I have to play more than once a day? 
Check with the front desk or call ahead at 503-823-3190. This is a day-of option only that applies to mixers, drills, and court reservations. If someone cancels and a court or space is available, you must get confirmation to use or join from PTC staff first. This day-of option will not count toward your daily use of the courts.

Can I register for programs and courts by phone?
Yes. The front desk opens at 6:45am. Call 503-823-3190.

Will I receive a confirmation once I book a court?
Yes. Once payment is completed, you will receive a confirmation that lists your court number, court time, and payment made. We recommend you retain a copy for your records.

How can I check my court reservation and classes in my ActiveNet account? 
When you book a court or register for a mixer or drill, you can view these by clicking My Account, and then View Family Members Schedule. In View Family Members Schedule, find your assigned court at the bottom of the reservation. All your bookings and activities will appear for the week.

How do I register for mixers and drills?
We recommend bookmarking the ActiveNet activities page. Once you’re logged in, you can find your mixer or drill by using the keyword or class number search. Effective January 17, you can book one drill session daily. If you have difficulty finding your mixer or drill, you can call the Customer Service Center at 503-823-2525.

Why can I only book one drill session per day?
Our drill sessions were created to improve the skills and abilities of all our players by receiving hands-on instruction from our pros. With a limited number of available sessions, waitlists are long. This new policy, booking one drill session per day, allows for more equity to receive instruction.   

What happens if I book back-to-back drill sessions?
We review all registrations for drill sessions. Anyone who books back-to-back sessions will be notified and one of the sessions will be canceled. If someone continues to book multiple drill sessions per day, forfeit of booking privileges may result.

What do I need to do when I arrive to play?
Please check in at the front desk before going to your assigned court. If you are playing with others, those players must pay BEFORE playing; this includes those playing on outside courts.
