Round Robin Ratings (RR Ratings) Explained
Round Robin Ratings are used for organized play to determine which Round Robin and Ladder a player gets invited to and for where a player plays in the Member Tournament.
Pickleball is a growing and evolving sport. As our club has grown to over 1000 members we have adjusted our organized play to accommodate a wide variety of players and skill levels. Our rating system utilizes the ratings from USAPA tournaments, a rating from the International Pickleball Teaching Professional Association and our own club assessment process. This is to ensure we stay aligned with the associations that are governing the sport and the teaching professionals. At the same time, we integrate these with the changing demographic, skill levels and style of play of our club members.
The rating is determined at membership purchase time based on the following criteria.
