NTRP Rating Appeal for Hawaii Players

Hawaii tennis players who have participated at Section or National Championships will not be allowed to appeal their ratings down for one year following the championship, except for players 60 years or older and players who qualify for a medical appeal.
How to Appeal Your Rating in TennisLink:

  2. Your name and rating will appear in the upper right of the screen.
  3. Click "Appeal Rating Level" shown below your rating.
  4. Click Up or Down to appeal your rating.

If your appeal is accepted, you will see a message that your appeal has been granted.  The letter code assigned to your rating will be "A" (appealed).   If your appeal is not granted, then you will see a message that your appeal has been denied along with the reason for denial.   
Any player with an “A” rating type can be NTRP Dynamically Disqualified after receiving 3 strikes. NTRP grievances can be filed against any self-rated player but not against computer rated players who appealed their rating.
If your appeal is denied, you have no further appeal unless you qualify for a medical appeal.
Rule for players age 60 and older:  Any player who is 60 years of age or older prior to, or during, the calendar year in which such player plays his/her first local league match and has achieved the same rating level or lower for the three most recent years, without benefit of appeal, will be granted an appeal if they are promoted at year-end.
