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,

The goal of Quick Pickle has always been to learn and get better at pickleball in a fun and entertaining way. Hopefully, these blogs or our videos have made you a better player, made you laugh or at least smile.
The most exciting part of pickleball for me is the social and welcoming attitude of the sport. No other game has players that want you to succeed and feel like a part of a group or family like it does.
I was very hesitant to share my story below because of how raw and personal it is, but if it can help one person then it is worth it.
Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads! This is the one day of the year that you get all the attention or maybe the day you don’t want any. “I’ll be in my shed building a top secret…thing!”
Every Dad celebrates it a little differently- dinner with the family, a phone call from your kids, sitting in the backyard with a cocktail or even better, a day of pickleball.
