Collaborative relationship unifies the sport with the premier rating system on the premier software platform
Pickleball.com, along with its subsidiaries, the PPA Tour, PickleballTournaments.com, and PickleballBrackets.com, will adopt DUPR (Dynamic Universal Pickleball Rating) as its official and exclusive rating system. “Today is a watershed moment for the sport of pickleball, marking the unification of the amateur game. This partnership will enable Pickleball.com & DUPR to create more innovative amateur player experiences, optimize ratings, and most importantly, grow the game we all love,” said Jill Braverman, CEO of DUPR. Pickleball.com will serve as the home for all DUPR events, including DUPR Waterfall Tournaments, Flex, and Team leagues. DUPR will remain the Official Pickleball Rating of the PPA Tour.
"As pickleball’s preeminent tournament management solution and long-time stewards of the game of pickleball, we are excited about removing the confusion and inconsistencies caused by having multiple rating systems. Coalescing around a single rating system will eliminate unnecessary distractions and allow us to continue to focus on enabling fair and fun competition in both recreational and tournament play," said Melissa McCurley, CEO of PickleballTournaments.com.
Pickleball is the fastest-growing and most popular participatory sport in America. DUPR and Pickleball.com have independently promoted this growth and will continue to provide solutions to meet the evolving needs of the growing community.
