At present, below are the ways for a player to rate their skill/play level in pickleball:
Sanctioned Tournament “UTPR” rating is obtained during sanctioned pickleball tournaments.
IPTPA Rating “I” uses the 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, or contact Melody Fischer @ 780.618.5403)
