A Dual Rating System
The Club employs a dual rating system.
The first is the Club Rating; the initial numeric Club Rating is based off a player’s color rating at September 2023. Refer to the Rating Transition Chart. The Club Rating will remain relatively static, with potential advancements occurring via an eligible increase in CRS rating.
The Club Rating continues to be the basis for participation in various club activities. Players will find fair, friendly competition. Events based on Club Rating generally offer a more relaxed environment with friends, as well as providing an opportunity to meet other members.
Club Ratings are used for:
Traditional round robin play
Skills and strategies sessions
Determining suitable drop-in court(s).
CRS Rating (Computerized Rating System)
The second is the Computerized Rating System (CRS) Rating. The CRS Rating is dynamic and determined solely by results in competitive CRS events. This competitive play includes “CRS ladder / round robin hybrid”, as well as future events where scores are recorded and entered into the identical computer algorithm used by USA Pickleball (UTPR).
As players progress, and feel ready to take on the next level, we've introduced a CRS (Computerized Rating System) Rating. This rating is dynamic, and changes after each game in CRS events.
The Club's initial CRS event offering will be the “CRS ladder / round robin hybrid”. This event provides members the opportunity to establish and advance their CRS rating. This event is ideal for members early on their pickleball journey, are on a ‘fast track’ to demonstrate their improving level of play or simply enjoy the small competitive flights.
The CRS ladder / round robin hybrid combines elements of round robin format with that of a Ladder. Scores will be tracked and input into our computerized rating system. This system will enable players to move both up and down the ladder based on their CRS rating. Each week, player flights will be organized according to their CRS rating, ensuring competitive matches.
The CRS ladder serves a dual purpose. First, it caters to players who thrive on closely contested matches. Second, participants in the CRS ladder will gradually develop their own CRS rating. The dynamic CRS rating will determine advancements of players' Club Ratings.
See How to Change your Club Rating page for more information, including the Reduction in Club Rating Section.
Once we have new courts, we can offer a variety of CRS events. We will add CRS events in response to member demand.
