Unified Tennis Philippines and Universal Tennis Join Forces



(Palo Alto, CA) April 19, 2021 – Unified Tennis Philippines and Universal Tennis are pleased to announce a new partnership to grow the game of tennis in the Philippines.

The UTR Rating is the world’s most accurate tennis rating system and rates all players, regardless of age, gender, or geography on the same scale. It is Universal Tennis’ mission to grow the game by providing more opportunities for play.

“We are pleased to partner with Unified Tennis Philippines and support tennis players, coaches, facilities, and those in the business of tennis in the Philippines,” said Mark Leschly, CEO & Chairman of Universal Tennis. “Now, players in the Philippines will have their results count towards their UTR Rating, allowing them to play locally and count on a global scale. Universal Tennis will support Unified Tennis Philippines in creating more opportunities to play and open pathways to the game for players of all levels.”

“We are looking forward to working with Universal Tennis and will implement the global rating system, as well as the other exciting new products and programs. Universal Tennis is a game-changer and is making the sport more balanced, exciting, and competitive,” said Jean Henri Lhuillier, President of Unified Tennis Philippines. “We already have thousands of players with a UTR rating who have benefited from the tools they offer; from juniors looking to play college tennis in the United States to adult recreational players wanting level-based competition.”

Starting today, all players who participate in Unified Tennis Philippines tournaments and events will have their results count towards their UTR Rating. Players who have played in previous Unified Tennis Philippines tournaments already have a UTR Rating and can claim their player profile for free.


Unified Tennis Philippines joins countries and federations from every continent that are submitting results to Universal Tennis and using the global system to organize events and help tennis players find more fun and competitive play and improve their game worldwide.
