USTA leagues are weighted slightly heavier however.
Also the points mentioned in the second post are the huge ones... win/loss record, position played, benchmarks being the top of level. You could be the lowest rated 3.5 possible, a 3.01, and have a benchmark.
How far back in time do these calculations go? I played NTRP tournaments years ago, will that always effect my top secret rating even as I get older?
