Player Rating System
Pickleball’s worldwide governing body, the International Federation of Pickleball (IFP), has created ratings to group players by ability level, thus enabling us to compete in tournaments or leagues with other players of similar ability. It improves a player’s chances of having a more competitive and fun match.
Click on the boxes to get an idea of your likely rating. Then ask an experienced player to share his or her thoughts.
