Edmonton Pickleball Club


Why do ratings matter?

We want you to have fun and learn and grow in pickleball.  Self-rating beyond your capability level, will not make pickleball fun for you or other members.

Playing pickleball with like-skilled players will allow everyone to be competitive and improve their play and enjoyment. When player skills are mismatched, it can be frustrating for all players.

All EPC scheduled play is organized by player ratings so like-skilled players, play with and against like-skilled players.

Player ratings at 2.0 and 2.5 are self-ratings. Learn to Play lessons are for beginners with little or no experience and only a rudimentary understanding of the game. Upon completion of Learn to Play, members will be helped to self-rate themselves as 2.0 or 2.5.

Players at 3.0, 3.5 and 4.0 must have a Club Rating or Tournament Rating to participate in club events at those levels.

Players at 4.5 and 5.0 must have a Tournament Rating.

Pickleball Canada website contains an excellent description of the skills you must master for each rating level.

Once registration is accepted and rating confirmed, your rating will be stored on the Edmonton Pickleball Club database, aa well as CourtReserve.  Check your skill rating in CourtReserve  (My Profile).
