Last week, the USAPA rolled out their new player rating system. The UTPR (USAPA Tournament Player Ratings) was established to have a more accurate assessment of all players.
With the previous or legacy system, the ratings were based on tournament directors and each player’s own ratings. (Surely no one would play down a level, would they?)
With tournaments getting bigger and more players entering the sport, it became difficult to track everyone correctly.
The UTPR is comprised using up to 3 years of tournament history from pickleballtournaments.com. It’s based on past performance and will help in seeding future tournaments.
How do you find your rating?
What if my rating isn’t accurate?
What are the most common issues being reported?
Which ratings will be used at the 2018 Nationals?
The USAPA is planning to publish a player rankings system later this year that will include more than a player’s rating. Hopefully, this answers some or all your questions about the new rating system.
Have a great day,
