UTPR stands for USA Pickleball Tournament Player Ratings. It is the official rating system used by USA Pickleball, the national governing body for the sport of pickleball in the United States. You can learn more about UTPR basics here.
If you are USA Pickleball member and have played in some sanctioned tournaments, chances are, you have an official skill rating or UTPR. Here’s how you view it.
- Login to USA Pickleball.
- Scroll down to the lower half of the page to see your ratings.
You have 2 skill ratings listed on this page.
- Your 2-digit UTPR is the skill rating used for tournament registrations. This is updated on a quarterly basis.
- Your 4-digit UTPR is the skill rating used for tournament seeding. This is updated weekly every Friday.
Click on the “Show My Profile” button to view your 2-digit and 4-digit skill ratings.
Your 2-digit and 4-digit UTPRs are shown on the lower right side of this page. This information may or may not match the information shown on the USA Pickleball website depending on whether you’ve played in sanctioned or non-sanctioned tournaments.
Clicking on the UTPR Match History link will show you all the matches you’ve played and how they have affected your skill rating. Things to note:
- A new ratings backend was implemented in April 2020 for UTPRs, including data provisioning for the match history page. To present consistent, accurate results, your UTPR Match History shows tournaments played from June 1, 2020 forward.
- Some tournaments are not imported into the UTPR calculation process until several weeks after the conclusion of the tournament for result quality issues. They will show up on this report once they are imported.
- Tournaments that opt out of being included in the UTPRs will not show here. So if it has been several weeks since your tournament concluded and you don’t see the results, this might be the case.
Now that you know how to look up your UTPR, do not worry if you feel that it is too low or too high. These ratings are designed to be self-correcting. The more tournaments you participate in and the more matches you play where results are reported, the more your ratings will adjust and the more accurate your UTPR will be.
