Common Sense tips on playing safely amid coronavirus crisis
Tennis is the safest sport you can play during this time. You are 75+ feet away from one another most of the time, you are outside (not in an enclosed space where the virus can incubate) and you are improving your immune system with exposure to sunlight and exercise. That makes it healthier than staying at home enclosed in your house, and safer than going shopping at the grocery store.

A Brand New Way to Measure Your Progress and Track the Level of Players Throughout the League!
Gladiator Tennis just jumped into the forefront of tennis by teaming up with UTR. All Gladiator Tennis scores, retroactive to 2019, are entered into the UTR Rating system. Gladiator is now the only league in the midwest that actually posts and ranks each player's UTR on its own website. USTA scores are also recorded into UTR, but you cannot go onto the USTA website to see a player's UTR. However, you can do this on our own Gladiator Tennis website, starting NOW! In 2021, we will also begin categorizing all players according to UTR, rather than by the NTRP skill levels (2.5 to 5.0).
