Default Tennis Rating System

Has anyone ever heard of the TENCAP rating system? I am sick of the NTRP system. I constantly have players arriving at my club looking for games, telling me they are a 4.5. So I set them up with a game with one of my 4.0 players, and it is a waste of both players' time because the guy is actually a bad 3.5. His pro inflated his rating, as I'm sure we've all seen before. But, then I hear of this TENCAP system and how it can eliminate most of those problems.

Apparently, TENCAP has a league in Kansas City that is very successful, and they are going to be expanding into the club system. It is a rating system calculated similar to a golf handicap, meaning it is completely based on play. So, supposedly you can't cheat the system. Scores are posted by club pros or team captains and ratings are calculated using an unique algorithm. So your rating changes all the time, not just within one season, or when your club pro says it changes.

If anyone knows anything about it, please post some info.
