At what age do tennis players go pro?
The average age of a player in the top 100 is 28 years on the men’s side and 26 on the women’s. Assuming we accept this as a player’s peak tennis age, a player leaving college is still 4-6 years away from reaching their full potential. Most players are confronted with the decision to turn pro at 22.
Level 7 (Novice or Entry Level) tournaments—these are one-day events in a “round-robin” or other format, intended for beginning tournament players. Level 6 (Satellite or Local Level) tournaments—these are multi-day events for players who have a little bit of tournament experience.
Junior tennis refers to tennis matches where the participants are aged 18 and under. Eligibility to compete in ITF Junior tournaments is not based on age, but year of birth: as a result, some players must move out of juniors soon after their 18th birthday, while others can play juniors until they are nearly 19.
Level 3.0. You are fairly consistent when hitting medium-paced shots, but are not comfortable with all strokes and lack execution when trying for directional control, depth, or power. Your most common doubles formation is one-up, one-back.
The 4 main tennis levels are the NTRP, UTR, ITF, and ATP. The NTRP is used to place players in appropriate leagues. The UTR system uses an algorithm to rate players based on recent results and is used by college coaches. The ITF and ATP rankings are based on tournament points and are for professionals.
A person with a 2.5 tennis rating is beginning to learn where the ball is headed and sustain a short rally but unable to cover the court efficiently.

Technically, the only things you need to become a tennis player are a racket, a tennis ball, and a court. However, in order to become a professional player, you must learn the game, practice relentlessly, and earn ranking points by winning tournament matches.
