How to Get Rated in Pickleball: A Comprehensive Guide

In the world of pickleball, ratings are your ticket to competitive play and tournament success. The Pickleball rating system has recently undergone a transformation to become more accurate and comprehensive. Previously, ratings were largely subjective, based on players’ own assessments of their skill level.

However, the new system is data-driven, taking into account a player’s performance in sanctioned tournaments. The new system of pickleball rating ranges from 1.0 (beginner) to 6.0 (professional), with each increment of 0.5 representing a distinct skill level.
