Ratings?

Understanding USATT Ratings / Levels

For players that don't understand the USATT rating system, it is sometimes difficult to grasp what levels / ratings mean.  At the request of the Sun City Hilton Head club, I'm posting this as a help to the table tennis community.  This is just an outline and doesn't represent all table tennis players, but I feel it is an excellent starting point.

National Champion

Sarah Jalli

Three months ago, Sarah Jalli was crowned champion of the US Open in Las Vegas for the u11 girls' event! Just after turning 12, she entered the US National Ranking Tournament in Davie, Florida (March 29-April 1). Each player was allowed to enter up to 2 of the events - u12, u13, u15, or u18. Sarah chose to skip the u12 and enter the u13 and u15. First, she played the u15 and finished #10 in the US... not bad. Then she began dominating the u13 with 8 consecutive wins against girls from across the nation. If she finished 1st or 2nd, she would make the US National Team.
