If you would like to continue working on your skills and learn some game strategies...
A player’s Rating is an assessment of the player’s place on a continuum of pickleball skills from beginner to accomplished. The scale is a number between 1 and 5 in 0.5 increments, with a 1.0 rating being a beginner and 5.0 being an expert.
Organized play provides an opportunity to participate in the game with other players who are of a similar skill and experience level. These play opportunities are offered in a variety of categories based on a player's experience/skill level and referred to as “rating levels”.
Rating a player serves two purposes:
It assists players and clubs in determining where the player is on the skill continuum and the skills s/he needs to work on to continue their pickleball progress.
It helps players find other players of similar ability to compete against fairly in club or tournament play.
