When you create your profile on Pickleball Brackets, you have to self-rate your pickleball skill level.
1) Go to “My Profile” in the top right corner of your Pickleball Brackets account.
2) Go to the #5 box in your profile and update your self- rating
Eventually your self-rating will be replaced by your real rating after you play in a couple tournaments and your game scores build a more accurate rating. Until then, your self-rating determines which events you are allowed to enter in a tournament.
