CourtReserve-USTA-ITF-WTN

St. Augustine, Florida–May 13, 2024–CourtReserve, a premier full club management software platform, has announced a groundbreaking collaboration with the United States Tennis Association (USTA) to integrate the International Tennis Federation (ITF) World Tennis Number (WTN) rating system within CourtReserve’s software. This collaboration marks a significant milestone in enhancing the tennis experience for clubs, instructors, and players across the globe.

Founded in 2016, CourtReserve has been dedicated to helping tennis clubs and pros start, manage, grow, and scale their businesses by efficiently streamlining their operations and court reservations. With over 1,500 clubs and more than 2.5 million players utilizing its services, CourtReserve has established itself as an indispensable tool in the racquet sports community.

Tim Owens, Co-Founder of CourtReserve, expressed his enthusiasm about the collaboration, stating, “At CourtReserve, our mission is to empower clubs and facilities with the tools they need to efficiently run their businesses and to elevate their players’ gaming experiences. Teaming up with the USTA to integrate the World Tennis Number rating system into our software aligns perfectly with this goal. It will provide our customers with a powerful tool to offer the WTN rating system to their players, fostering fair and competitive matches while enhancing the overall tennis experience for all.”

The ITF World Tennis Number is a free, dynamic rating that has been adopted by more than 170 countries. WTN establishes a standardized rating system for tennis players worldwide, facilitating more equitable matches across all skill levels. By incorporating this system into the CourtReserve platform, clubs and instructors can seamlessly implement the WTN rating system, ensuring that players of similar abilities can easily connect and compete.

The WTN integration will help enhance your tennis offerings, attract new players, and improve your facility’s reputation. With it, clubs and instructors can boost player engagement by offering a variety of match formats and scoring options to cater to diverse preferences and skill levels. By grouping players according to skill level or ball color (green and yellow count for ITF WTN), clubs can create competitive matches that drive growth and development among players.

“We are thrilled to offer the free integration of WTN to USTA Connect partners like CourtReserve,” said Craig Morris, Chief Executive, Community Tennis, USTA. “Our goal is to make this powerful, dynamic rating more accessible to tennis players and providers across the country.”

USTA Connect, an initiative launched last year by the USTA to promote collaboration and innovation across the tennis industry, has been instrumental in the development of the WTN rating integration with CourtReserve. By facilitating greater integration and communication among key industry partners like CourtReserve, USTA Connect aims to drive growth and accessibility within the sport. 

With this integration, CourtReserve will continue its commitment to advancing racquet sports and empowering its community of clubs, instructors, and players. As the partnership evolves, users can expect enhanced functionality and a more seamless tennis experience within the CourtReserve platform.
