    The USTA FAQ on NTRP appears to say that a player with a mixed exclusive rating who is self rating for adult USTA leagues must use the mixed exclusive as the minimum for their self rate level:


    Can I use my mixed exclusive rating to play in other divisions?
    A mixed exclusive (M) player must self-rate in order to join the Adult, Senior and Super Senior divisions. Mixed Doubles exclusive is a minimum NTRP start level only. A mixed exclusive rating is not supported by any NTRPdynamic disqualification calculation data and is subject to NTRP grievance.

    Does that mean what I think it does?

    What do you think it means?

    Seems pretty clear. You have to self-rate for adult leagues at your mixed rating or above.

    That is what I think too but I didn't want to poison the well. I asked for an interpretation because of the way the USTA phrased that sentence. I would have written it more clearly myself, something like "when self rating for adult leagues, players with a mixed exclusive rating must self rate at a minimum at that rating."
