Sanctioned Tournament “UTPR or CTPR” rating (obtained during sanctioned pickleball tournaments).
IPTPA Rating (International Pickleball Teaching Professional Association’s Certified Rating Specialist) to complete a player assessment based on static skills and actual game performance. This process is absolutely objective. Results are fed into an IPTPA Calculator for a Pass or Fail. (See the links below for more information)
