If there is any disagreement about the fault, the players will replay the point. In doubles pickleball, either partner may make line calls on their respective side of the pickleball court. Register Now >>

What You Need to Know About Player Ratings

Player ratings are designed to add a more objective, quantifiable method of determining a player’s skill level. In tournaments, ratings enable more evenly balanced partner assignments and make for more competitive and exciting play overall. There are several ways to rate players:

  • Self-Rating. Players declare their skill level based on understanding general rules of thumb.
  • DUPR Rating. DUPR is a free, easy-to-use app that collects information on enrolled players who enter the results of each game they play when facing other players who also use the app.  
  • Peer Rating. Players rate each other anonymously based on their prior knowledge of having played with and/or against other players over time.

Spring tournament players will be asked to enter their rating score on the registration form based on either self or DUPR rating. Detailed information on these methods can be found at https://oakmontpickleballclub.com/player-rating.

If you want assistance using one of these rating methods for registration, contact John Bruno at (707) 291-3592.
