What impact will the new USAPA Tournament Player Rating System have on Tournament Directors?
Tournament directors will have the ability to make use of the 4-digit rating to better bracket and seed players in each bracket. More accurate bracketing and seeding makes for a more competitive and fun tournament for all participants.
Seeding capabilities will be provided free of charge to all USAPA sanctioned tournaments using PickleballTournaments.com. Unsanctioned tournaments will be able to optionally add seeding at an additional fee. Note: The seeding feature will be available to tournament directors approximately 60 days after initial ratings are released.
