FAQS About USA Pickleball, UTR Sports Partnership

FAQS About USA Pickleball, UTR Sports Partnership

What is the UTR Pickleball Rating (UTR-P)?

Equipped with over a decade of expertise as the creator of the gold-standard UTR Rating for tennis, UTR Sports offers the most accurate and reliable global rating for pickleball. 

The UTR-P is designed to rate every kind of player, whether you're just swinging your first paddle or smashing your way through pro-level tournaments. The UTR Pickleball Rating (UTR-P) includes both provisional and numerical ratings for singles and doubles players. 

Players without match results logged will receive a provisional rating (P1-P5) based on a questionnaire. After a few matches, the rating automatically converts to a reliable decimal rating on a scale of 1 - 10.0 (from beginner to expert/pro).

Read more about the UTR Pickleball Rating.

How does the UTR-P Rating scale work?

1 = Beginner: New to the game with minimal racquet sports experience (provisional rating equivalent of P1)

2 = Social/Casual: Plays on occasion for fun and can maintain rallies (provisional rating equivalent of P2)

3 = Intermediate: Has a solid understanding of basics and strategic knowledge with an interest in competitive play (provisional rating equivalent of P3)

4.0-4.9 = Advanced: Consistent shot maker who can compete in advanced-level tournaments (provisional rating equivalent of P4)

5.0-10.0 = Expert/Pro: Master of all shots and strategies who participates at the highest levels of competition (provisional rating equivalent of P5)

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

What matches count towards the UTR-P Rating, and what is verified vs. unverified?

Results are either verified and unverified scores depending on whether the match or tournament was organized and played according to our verified rules or was a player organized/social/recreational for which scores are unverified. 

All USA Pickleball-owned events, all APP events, and all UTR Sports events are included in verified events. The algorithm takes into account at least a year of results or the past 60 games. 

A verified UTR-P Rating that is fully reliable is indicated by a checkmark badge on a player’s profile. The reliability indicator means the UTR-P algorithm is highly accurate for this player. Ratings will dynamically move up and down as new results are factored in.

What will happen to UTPR (USA Pickleball Tournament Player Ratings)?

More information on this transition and the status of UTPR will be communicated in the coming weeks as we transition to the UTR-P Rating. UTPR is not expected to be used in the future. We will carefully manage this process every step of the way.
