MPC Skills Assessment Overview

Welcome to all new members of the Mono Pickleball Club. 

The following is a reminder of the MPC Membership Policy Article 4:

All new members, regardless of previous experience, will be considered to be a “Beginner/Novice” player (1.0 - 2.0) until they have demonstrated a minimum of IPTPA 2.5 (Early Intermediate). The MPC Skill Assessment Procedure and accompanying IPTPA Skills Checklists will be utilized for members to demonstrate their skills.

The policy and assessment procedure can be found < here >. 
The IPTPA Criteria and Checklists are listed in the right hand column under Additional Documents.

How does this impact new members?

You will be playing on the beginner/novice court(s) until you have been assessed at a different level.

What should you do next if you wish to play at a different level?

  1. Using the Self-Evaluation Skills Matrix, identify your level as close and as honestly as possible.  This can be downloaded from the link in the right column.
  2. If you choose to proceed to a different level, request an observation of your play by one of MPC’s certified coaches by completing the registration available by clicking 'REGISTER' above.
  3. You will be contacted when court time is available for this assessment.  Registrants must submit the completed Matrix before an assessment can be scheduled. You will be contacted when court time is available for this assessment. Feedback will be provided during and following the on-court assessment as well as next steps.
  4. If deemed appropriate, a formal assessment based on an IPTPA checklist (also in the right column) and corresponding on-court play will be scheduled.
  5. If you would like to join a clinic to learn/perfect skills, you can sign up to do so by clicking < here >.

Note: Over 75% of 2.5 and 3.0 assessed skills involve play at or near the NVZ line and include dinks, volleys and drops. In addition, 3.0 players require the ability to execute drop shots from the transition zone and baseline during play.
One of the major components of the assessment is consistency of shots.

Self-Evaluation Skills Matrix:

The first step in the Skills Assessment Procedure, asks members to complete a thorough self-evaluation of their skills prior to scheduling an informal assessment with a MPC coach.
