What’s My Rating?

 

One of the biggest question players have (or argue with other players about!) is their Rating. You have probably heard, ‘I’m a 4.5’ or ‘You’re not a 4.5!’, around your local pickleball court.

 

The truth is, pickleball has a player rating system and it does follow some guidelines, but overall it can be a bit subjective.
