The ELO rating system is a way to measure the skill level of pickleball players. The system is based on the ELO rating system used in chess and is used by the United States Pickleball Association (USAPA) and the International Pickleball Teaching Professional Association (IPTPA). For this league, we will use your self-rating or GPN rating.
Under the ELO system, each player is assigned a rating based on their performance in sanctioned tournaments. A player's rating increases when they beat an opponent with a higher rating, and decreases when they lose to an opponent with a lower rating. The amount of rating points gained or lost depends on the difference in ratings between the two players, with bigger rating point changes for matches between players with a larger rating difference. This system allows players to track their progress and compare their skill level to other players. It also allows tournament organizers to create more competitive and fair brackets.
GPN ELO Rating System - Elo Rating: This system is the best system for ranking teams by their ability. Each team will start with 1500 points, which will increase as they win and decrease as they lose. The amount of points gained or lost from a match is dependent on the points of the opponent played. For example, if a 2000 point team beats a 1000 point team, very little change will occur to either teams rating. However, if a 2000 point team loses to a 1000 point team, both teams ratings will change drastically. Teams points will also change more drastically during the first games that are recorded. This allows teams to reach a stable equilibrium quickly. Learn more here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elo_rating_system
