Why do ratings matter?

At EPC, we want you to learn to play, enjoy the game, and improve your skills.  

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-rated. 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.

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, as well as CourtReserve.  Check your skill rating in CourtReserve  (My Profile).

How can I get a higher club rating?

Ratings acceptable to EPC are:

  1. CTPR rating (Canadian Tournament Pickleball Rating) or equivalent (UTPR). Acceptable for all rating levels - subject to having played and recorded 10 sanctioned games within the last 24 months.
  2. IPTA (International Pickleball Teaching Professional Association) skill ratings from any certified IPTPA professional for a 3.0, 3.5, or 4.0 rating.  One place you can obtain this is at The Center (Edmonton Volleyball & Pickleball Club)  http://evpcenter.com
  3. DUPR for a 4.0 rating only with a MINIMUM of 60 recorded games
  4. For a 4.5 rating and above, you must be CTPR tournament rated.
