How to Change Your Club Rating

Effective immediately we will be adjusting the milestones to advance your Club Rating.   Depending on a player’s current Club Rating they will either be required to complete 15 or 30 games and attain a CRS rating that meets the minimum threshold to move to the next level.

 

Event Schedule:

 

While we await the availability of new courts, our current CRS events will consist of the CRS Ladder, scheduled for Tuesdays (men) and Thursdays (women) through mid-October.  The winter schedule will have women’s CRS on Thursday and Men’s CRS on Friday. The average number of games completed per week is 5.

We understand that many members might hesitate to risk their existing Club Rating by playing in CRS events. To encourage participation, we are implementing the following measures:

Trial Period – Sept-Dec 31: 

 

To facilitate members' exposure to CRS without impacting their Club Rating, we are introducing an initial 4-month trial period. We recognize that this competitive format may not align with everyone's preferences; however, we want to provide all members with a risk-free opportunity to acquaint themselves with it.

 

ADVANCEMENT DURING THE TRAIL PERIOD

 

2.5 (Teal) thru 3.75 (Indigo)

Players can quickly move through these levels as their skills improve quickly.  Players desiring to move from 2.5 through 3.75 are required to play in a minimum of 15 CRS games and attain a CRS rating that meets the minimum threshold of the next level.   A player can only move 1 level after 15 games.

 

30 games offer a sample size large enough to be statistically accurate.  Therefore, after 30 games as soon as a player meets the minimum threshold of a level they will be moved to that level.

 

4.0 (Green) thru 4.5+(Aqua)

 

A player’s ability to improve relative to other upper-level players slows dramatically.  As a result a player must complete 30 games in order to advance a level.

 

Because 30 games offer a sample size large enough to be statistically accurate, after 30 games a players can move 1, 2 or 3 levels.

 

Success Process: Players meeting the criteria for the next level will be notified the week they qualify.  All players will be asked if they want to advance to the next level.  It is not mandatory, and we recognize some players may choose to stay at their current level.  Their club rating will be changed once the player responds to our inquiry.

 

NO RISK OF REDUCTION IN CLUB RATING DURING THE TRIAL PERIOD

 

If a player’s CRS Rating falls below the initial CRS rating for their level during the trial period, on 1/1/2024 their CRS rating will be restored to the mid-point of their current club level. 

 

We highly encourage all players to try the format during this trial period.  We want all players to become comfortable with the ebbs and flows of their own CRS rating.  Simply play for the fun of the competition and forget about your rating.    If your rating drops the first couple weeks keep playing.  We want players to recognize that ratings that go down can also come back up.

 

If a player’s CRS Rating falls below the initial CRS rating for their level on 1/1/2024 their CRS rating will be restored to the mid-point of their current club level.  NO RISK!

 

Post Trial Period – 1/1/2024

 

Beginning 1/1/2024 all games will count and be taken into consideration in determining a player Club Rating. 

 

ADVANCEMENT AFTER 1/1/2024 – (Same as during Trial Period)

 

2.5 - 3.75 (Teal – Indigo)

Players can quickly move through these levels as their skills improve quickly.  Players desiring to move from 2.5 through 3.75 are required to play in a minimum of 15 CRS games and attain a CRS rating that meets the minimum threshold of the next level.   A player can only move 1 level after 15 games.

 

30 games offer a sample size large enough to be statistically accurate.  Therefore, after 30 games as soon as a player meets the minimum threshold of a level they will be moved to that level.

 

4.0 – 5.0 (Green - Aqua)

 

A player’s ability to improve relative to other upper-level players slows dramatically.  As a result, a player must complete 30 games to advance a level.

 

Because 30 games offer a sample size large enough to be statistically accurate, after 30 games a players can move 1, 2 or 3 levels.

REDUCTION IN CLUB RATING AFTER 1/1/24

 

Players will only have a reduction in Club Rating if their CRS rating, plus 0.375, falls short of the minimum threshold for current Club Rating.  This buffer prevents a temporary drop in CRS rating resulting in a premature demotion in Club Rating. Below is a chart showing the parameters that would precede a reduction in Club Rating.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Reductions in Club Ratings will happen monthly at the end of a rating period (the last Friday of each month starting January 26, 2024). Advancements will happen weekly.

 

​Flexibility: Participation in CRS events is voluntary, allowing players to retain their current Club Rating in most instances. 

 

Exceptions: In rare instances, if a player is observed performing significantly below their current level in Traditional Round Robins, they will be given a choice to voluntarily move to a lower level or participate in CRS events to accumulate 15 games. If, after 15 games, their CRS rating falls 0.375 below the minimum threshold, they will be moved down one level, otherwise they retain their Club Rating. 

We strongly urge all players interested in a rating change to make the most of our risk-free trial period.
