Classifying: Beginner, Intermediate & Advanced Tennis Player watch

    • Thread Starter

    How does one classify: beginner, intermediate or advanced tennis player?

    Is this a correct/good way to classify it (can add if you want to):

    Beginner-able to serve with little accuracy, return serve with little to no avail, little to no facts about the rules of the court

    Intermediate-able to serve with accuracy with minimal error, return serve with ease and fast with minimal error, has some background in the rules of the court and tournament, minimal skills in tactical tennis or skillful play.

    Advanced-serve with ease and at high speed, return serve at very high speed, lots of tactics at hand.

    Not that into Tennis but isn't there a uniform rating system for club players?

    Unless it has changed in the last few years, it used to be 7.0 for beginners, and then the lower the number, the better you are. County level players tended to be around 4, and national was around 2-3, iirc. Where you draw the line for "Intermediate" and "Advanced", I don't know. S'pose that'd be the best way to determine a player's level?
