Player Ratings

What Are Player Ratings?

Player Ratings allow players with similar skills to play together. Player Ratings at Pickleball Charlotte are used for many different events including Open Play, Tournaments, Group Play, and more. Although many of our Open Play Sessions and Other Programs require a Pickleball Charlotte Player Rating, there are other Open Play Sessions and Clinics, Lessons, etc that do not require a specific Player Rating. Once provided with a rating by a qualified Pickleball Charlotte Staff member, players will be able to register for Events and Programs in CourtReserve that matches their assigned Player Rating.

If you play in any sanctioned tournaments, you may have a UTPR (USA Pickleball Tournament Rating) or DUPR rating. DUPR is a Pickleball rating app where you can create or participate in regular games or matches and track and record your results. DUPR is the official rating system for PPA, MLP, APP, etc. Pickleball Charlotte uses our own Player Rating System. Your DUPR Rating does not necessarily equal the same rating you may have at Pickleball Charlotte.

The information below summarizes the minimum expectations for each Player Rating Level. To receive a Player Rating, please review the chart below and determine the Player Rating Level YOU feel you most likely would qualify for. Once you determine the Player Rating Level you feel is equal to your playing abilities, then find an Open Play Session on your CourtReserve APP that has available space and call 704-583-1444 (Ext 3) or Email [email protected] for our staff to register you. On the day of your Open Play Session, please check-in at the front counter and our staff will get some more information from you and then observe your play and then email you in the next few days with your new, or updated Player Rating. We also will update your CourtReserve account so you will be able to view your Player Rating online.
