A Skill Rating is used to group players by ability levels so that players can compete in tournaments or leagues with other players of similar ability. Keep in mind that the IFP/USAPA rating system is not a perfect system. It should, however, improve a player’s chances of having a more competitive and fun match.
HSV Pickleball Club has chosen a Club Rating system and members will Self Rate to determine their Skill Level. This is a rather simple self evaluation of your skills. The following is a guide that allows you to subjectively see what your playing abilities equate to as a skill.
Enjoy, Play, Practice and Move up the levels.
You must answer “YES” to 5 or more Statements, if you cannot then you are that Skill Rating. If "YES" then drop down to the next self-evaluation box, start answering “YES” under the same criteria. If “No” to 2 or more statements, you are the Skill Level shown.
If “YES” to 5 or more, your self-rating is………………………….Skill Rating 4.5 or 5.0
