What is a Rating?

Player ratings are used to group players by ability levels so that players can compete in organized play and participate in clinics with other players of similar ability.

For Cochrane Pickleball Club, a player rating is a numeric value from 2.0 through 5.0 that classifies a given player’s pickleball skills and abilities.

This 2023-24 Season, there are two types of Ratings that will allow you to play in Organized Events.

The previous Board of Directors introduced a new, more competitive style of Ratings called DUPR (Dynamic Universal Pickleball Ratings)

We will be continuing Skill based Ratings that have been used over the previous 4 years. Those who have had a previous Skill Rating will be able to carry it over from last season.

Why do I need a Rating?

If you wish to participate in Skill Rated organized play such as a Skill Rated Round Robins, or Player Development clinics, you will need a Skill Rating. You will be grouped with players of similar Skill level. Please see the Skill Based Criteria here. 

If you wish to participate in DUPR Events you will have to create an account at: mydupr.com  DUPR Ratings are only valid at 3.0 and below. Currently Cochrane Pickleball Club Players may have both a Skill Rating and a DUPR Rating.

* Please see CPC Rating Criteria and Policy 2023-24 regarding types of play.

 How Do I Get a Rating?

Any “Beginner” is welcome to join Beginner Lessons on Wednesday mornings (check schedule) from 9:00am to 11:00am. Upon completion of the lesson, they will be assigned a 2.0 Rating. For others who do not have a Skill Rating and wish to have one contact cpcratings@gmail.com.

If you would like to be assessed to the next level, or you have any questions regarding a Club Rating, please contact cpcratings@gmail.com

To understand how you may participate in various club programs please read through the CPC Rating Policy and Criteria document.

What is a Ratings Director and What do they do?

The Ratings Director is appointed by the Club President or Board of Directors.  The Ratings Director recommends policies for ratings, monitors ratings procedures, hears any ratings appeals, and updates club records to reflect current rating information.

The Ratings Committee is an advisory Committee working with the Ratings Director to set the Policies used to determine how the Club will conduct Ratings and Assessments

Where is my Skills Rating Valid?

Your Skills Rating is valid only with the Cochrane Pickleball Club. Please see the Skill Based Criteria here. Your DUPR Rating is valid in any DUPR event, including Tournaments that are DUPR hosted. Members may have both a Skill Rating and a DUPR Rating.
