The Rating system for determining skill-level entry is as follows.

The CKTS has a strict “No Sandbagging” policy.  Players must enter events at their true level or higher, never below.
In doubles teams, entries must be at the level of the best player in the duo (not a “combo” rating).
For help in determining your rating, please examine the guidelines below.

  • Open division players typically have an NTRP (National Tennis Rating Program) rating of  4.0 or higher.
  • B's are intermediate players in the 3.0 - 3.5 range.
  • C's are beginners who would have an NTRP rating of 1.0-2.5

The system for determining Age-Division entry is as follows.

  • For the 12 & Under Divisions:  If a child turns 13 at any time during the 2018 calendar year (Jan. 1 - Dec. 31, 2018), then under our guidelines they are too old for the 12 & Under divisions, and must move up to the 15 & Under division.
  • For the 15 & Under Divisions:  If a child turns 16 at any time during the 2018 calendar year (Jan. 1 - Dec. 31, 2018), then under our guidelines they are too old for the 15 & Under divisions, and must move up to the 18 & Under division.
  • For the 18 & Under Divisions:  If a person turns 19 at any time during the 2018 calendar year (Jan. 1 - Dec. 31, 2018), then they are too old for the 18 & Under divisions and must move up to an adult skill-level division.
  • For 18 & Under Doubles Entry:  If one of the partners qualifies for 18 & Under according to our guidelines, but the other player doesn't, then they cannot as a duo enter the 18 & Under doubles and may instead enter an adult doubles division.
  • Youth Playing in Adult Singles or Adult Doubles:  Under CKTS regulations, if a youth qualifies by age for the 12 & Under, 15 & Under, or 18 & Under Singles, then they may NOT enter adult B or C singles.  However, they are welcome to enter the Open divisions instead of--or in addition to--their age division.  In Doubles, if both partners qualify for 15/18 & Under divisions, they may NOT enter B or C doubles, yet they may play Open divisions instead of--or in addition to--their age division.
  • Adult Age Divisions:  To qualify for the 40 & Over division, the player will turn 40 - or is older than 40 - in the 2018 calendar year (Jan. 1 - Dec. 31, 2018).
