The UTR Pickleball Rating (UTR-P)

Hey there pickleball fans! We're stoked to introduce our new UTR Pickleball Rating (UTR-P). This is a game-changer, designed to rate every kind of player, whether you're just swinging your first paddle or smashing your way through pro-level tournaments.

UTR-P ratings are one of two flavors - one backed by match history, and a provisional rating if you're new to UTR-P, to get you started and out on the court. Initially, you'll get a provisional rating (P1-P5) based on your skill set or questionnaire result. After a few matches, this converts to a number rating (1-10).

Note: The algorithm counts singles/doubles/verified/unverified separately and it changes dynamically to keep your rating as accurate as possible.
