DUPR is a system for figuring out your skill level based on wins/losses and points scored in games against other players with a DUPR profile. It is helpful to know your rating so if you enter a tournament or play at bigger facilities that designate courts by rating (like in Florida), you know where you stand. (More about DUPR)
