The Bermuda Lawn Tennis Association (BLTA) is introducing the ITF World
Tennis Number (WTN) – a brand new, inclusive and modern ranking system for all

It is a single tennis ranking for all players, regardless of age, ability or
gender – from the world’s elite to a player taking part in their first
competition. The scale will see players given a rating from 40 to 1, with
recreational players starting close to 40 and the professionals being close to 1.
The adaptation of the WTN by the BLTA will help to improve the ranking for
those involved in local BLTA and club competitions, coaching reviews, team
selections and also all players participating internationally.
