Pickleball Player Rating


What is a Pickleball Rating and Do I Need One? Player ratings are used to group players by ability levels so that players can compete in tournaments or leagues with other players of similar ability. Ratings can also be used when particapating in classes or clinics and orgainized by Skill level Social Play. Keep in mind that this will never be a perfect system, but it should improve a player’s chances of having a more competitive and fun match. CHECK OUT RATINGS  & LEARN MORE >


Players may not provide or offer Lessons and/or paid training to other players. Lessons and instruction given at the Indoor Academy must be sponsored by, overseen or taught by a certified member of Indoor Team. If you are interested in teaching or holding an event, please contact us.
