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.
In this regard, how do you go from 3.0 to 3.5 in tennis?
To improve the volley from a 3.0 to a 3.5 level, a good drill to practice is to get your hitting partner to give you a short ball to try attack. Then follow up by coming up to the net to put the volley away.
In this way, how good is a 4.5 tennis player?
The program identifies and describes 13 levels of playing ability — ranging from 1.0 to 7.0 — based upon several playing characteristics. An NTRP rating of 4.5 means you’re an advanced player, quite skilled and you play in leagues and tournaments.
What is a Level 2 tennis player?
General Characteristics of Various Playing Levels
2.0: This player needs on-court experience. This player has obvious stroke weaknesses, but is familiar with basic positions for singles and doubles play. 2.5: This player is learning to judge where the ball is going although court coverage is weak.
A person with a 3.5 tennis rating still lacks depth and variety with shots but has improved on direction of shots as well as improved court coverage.
The 3.5 is simply trying to keep the ball in play. The 3.5 player will win points and games by staying in rallies and letting the 4.0 make mistakes. Whereas the 4.0 will win games by forcing errors and hitting more winners.
Junior NTRP Ratings: The rating scale for junior players is shown in tenths, starting with 2.0, which is the lowest, progressing to 2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4, etc., until 7.0, which is the highest rating given to world-class players with ATP/WTA points.
Intermediate Player: Has achieved improved stroke dependability with directional control on moderate shots, but still lacks depth and variety. Starting to exhibit more aggressive net play and has improved court coverage.
Of all the descriptions of plaver levels — from “A, B and C” to “beginner, intermediate, advanced” — the best system was developed bv the U.S. Tennis Association in 1979. The USTA defines player levels on a scale from 1.0 to 7.0 in its National Tennis Rating Program (NTRP).
