Don’t forget the new rating system goes into effect on January 1, 2019! 

 

If you are registering for a tournament on or after January 1, 2019 you must have a USAPA Tournament Player Rating (UTPR) or legacy rating. Please remember that during registration, you are not able to change your rating, but you can still register to play at a higher level if you choose.  

 

Click here to be sure you have a UTPR!** If you do not have a UTPR, you must self-rate according to the USAPA self-rate guidelines. Mark your calendars to do this well in advance since it can take up to three weeks to receive your rating and have it published to PickleballTournaments.com for use in tournament registration. 

 

To try and make the transition a little easier, while players must have a rating for the event they are registering for, PickleballTournaments.com will take the following steps to put a valid rating in place for you.

 

If you are registering for mixed or gender doubles and don’t have a UTPR we will first check to see if you have a rating in another category. In this order, we will check: 

  • UTPR in gender (if no mixed UTPR) or mixed (if no gender UTPR) event
  • UTPR in singles 
  • Legacy Doubles Rating
  • Legacy Singles Rating

If you are registering for singles and don’t have a UTPR we will first check to see if you have a rating in another category. In this order, we will check:   

  • UTPR in doubles
  • UTPR in mixed doubles
  • Legacy Singles Rating
  • Legacy Doubles Rating

 

If PickleballTournaments.com can’t find a rating using one of the above methods, you will not be allowed to continue registration and will need to follow the self-rating guidelines. 

Note: For tournaments that opened registration prior to or on 12/31/18, players will continue to register using the legacy rating.
