What's your UTR-P?

THE UTR-P Rating

Is for Everyone

The UTR Pickleball Rating (UTR-P) is for players of all ages at all levels from beginner to pro. Players with match results see a rating on a numerical scale of 1-10.0. Players without enough match results will receive a provisional rating (P1-P5) based on questionnaire results. The rating automatically converts from provisional to numerical and moves up or down based on results.

What are the new UTR-P Rating changes?

We have exciting news! The UTR Pickleball Rating (UTR-P) has undergone a significant update, expanding its scale and including a new numerical component. 

Equipped with over a decade of expertise as the creator of the gold-standard UTR Rating for tennis, UTR Sports offers the most 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.

Players without match results will receive a provisional rating (P1-P5) based on their questionnaire results. After a few matches, this converts to a reliable decimal rating on a scale of 1 - 10.0.

How does the UTR-P Rating scale work?


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

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

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

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

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

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