Pickleball518 is now a DUPR club

Pickleball518 is now an official DUPR pickleball club.

DUPR, or Dynamic Universal Pickleball Rating, is the skill rating system endorsed by the Pro Pickleball Association, the Association of Pickleball Professionals, Major League Pickleball, Pickleball Brackets, Pickleball Tournaments and Pickleball.com.

DUPR calls it “The most accurate and only global rating system in Pickleball. All players, regardless of their age, gender, location, or skill, are rated on the same scale between 2.00-8.00 based on their match results.”

DUPR is a free tool available to any pickleball player. DUPR ratings are optional. Social players do not need to participate in DUPR.

For players interested in playing tournaments, an accurate rating system assures that players who enter a specific skill division truly perform at that level, which leads to more competitive and fair games.

Pickleball518 is thrilled to help players from Albany, Schenectady and Clifton Park to Saratoga Springs, Queensbury and Glens Falls start establishing a reliable rating.

In addition to wins and losses, the DUPR system considers how many points you won against an opponent and the type game it was: self-reported recreational play, league match or sanctioned tournament.

More weight is given to games reported by a tournament or club director. Games played during Pickleball518 DUPR events will have five times more weight than a self-reported game score, and help players quickly gain reliable ratings.

Pickleball518 will hold its first DUPR ratings event very soon so check back for an announcement.
