I haven't been able to find much information on USTA early season ratings and I'm hoping someone can shed some light. Last month I received my early season rating and I was bumped up. It was listed on the local USTA section site, but tennis link still shows me at my old level. I also tried to register for the fall season on the same team I played for this spring but was given an error message that my level exceeds that team. Is tennis link incorrect/inconsistent with publishing my level, or is an early season rating not a "real" rating? For example, any only temporarily at this level pending my play for the rest of the year? I'm just not sure what my true NTRP level is (old rating vs. new rating).
