Individual Tournaments

Many Tournaments occur in the Abilene and surrounding areas throughout the year.  Most of these are through an organization called UTR.  This is free to join, and you only pay for tournaments you enter.  All tournaments are broken into many draws or brackets.  The players are grouped into brackets where they are guaranteed 3 matches and against players of similar levels.  The more UTR Tournaments they play, the more accurate their rating will be and the better brackets they will be placed in.  

  1. Download the UTR App (Universal Tennis Rating).  It is free.
  2. Create a free profile for your player.
  3. Tournaments can be found on this app and entered through it as well.
