The DUPR rating system provides clubs and organizations with universal, real time ratings for it’s players. It is a rating based solely on the players results therefore making it extremely objective. Leagues, organized play, tournaments, and round robins can be easily run and monitored with DUPR.

Lee Whitwell

I enjoy teaching immensely, but it’s always difficult when people sign up for the wrong skill level clinic. They simply don’t know any better. I’m excited to have a way for your every day player to know where they stand so that they can learn and compete with people of their own skill level.

Zane Navratil

I love DUPR because it’s a transparent rating system available to everyone! It’s adaptable so it will keep updating to ensure accuracy. Tournament and rec players can easily get their 3 digit rating and find compatible partners for play!

Dekel Barr

Some people play their best games at tournaments and others play theirs in rec play. DUPR captures all that data to make sure your rating reflects what it should: Your game. This is a game changer for the sport of Pickleball.

Brandon Nsekpong

I'm so excited that there is finally a framework to accurately measure skill level. Not only is DUPR accurate, but you no longer have to be a tournament player to be rated, making ratings more attainable than ever.

Corinne Carr

The DUPR rating system does not lose out on any information or data. They incorporate everything into their algorithm, making it the most accurate and effective method for ratings.

DUPR and My Pickleball Coach Launch Global Skills Program - Software Tool Enables Coaches and Clubs to Create and Advance DUPR Skills at Scale

DUPR, the world's most accurate global pickleball rating system and My Pickleball Coach, the premier pickleball coaching platform for coaches and players, today announced the launch of a “Global Skills Program”, a co-branded initiative to support coaches and players in their pickleball careers and journeys and further unify the sport under a common language and standard. 

The new Global Skills Program, created by experts from DUPR and My Pickleball Coach, makes it easy for coaches to get players rated on DUPR, and offers in-app coaching for players to improve their skills and level. The program, available on My Pickleball Coach, seamlessly integrates cameras, the DUPR app, and the My Pickleball Coach app, enabling coaches to initiate scalable coaching experiences for thousands of players, generate DUPR ratings, and foster new revenue streams and expansion for coaches and clubs.

Tito Machado, CEO of DUPR remarked, “We developed the Global Skills Program in partnership with My Pickleball Coach to offer coaches scalable technology to support their efforts to grow and develop the game in their communities. When players are rated on DUPR and have opportunities to develop their skills, everyone in the global pickleball ecosystem benefits, from facilities, clubs, equipment manufacturers, travel companies and everyone who touches the game.”

Jordan Briones, one of the leading pickleball coaches with over 65,000 subscribers on YouTube, emphasized, “With 13 million active players and another 17 million beginners joining the game, the key to sustaining pickleball's growth lies in growing and measuring skills for players. By becoming a DUPR Coach, the Global Skills Program equips coaches like me with a simple way to help players get a DUPR, reach their potential and establish a love for the game. When players have a rating and goals to achieve, players play more, join clubs, influence their friends and family to play and contribute to the growth of the sport.”

“The Global Skills Program supports coaches in driving more pickleball activity in their communities by offering a seamless technology solution to initiate DUPR ratings for players and pathways to improve their skills,” remarked Katie Nimitz, President of MyJourney. “Players simply play a game of pickleball where a phone camera or installed camera at the facility records their play. Coaches then use My Pickleball Coach to rapidly evaluate and assess a series of on-paddle and off-paddle skills to personally score key game areas such as technical skills, shot selection, partner chemistry, and court positioning. This automatically then creates the provisional rating and DUPR account for the player with their detailed assessment and DUPR skills rating.”

The Global Skills Program offers two main components: The DUPR Coach for coaches and the DUPR Skills Subscription for players. The DUPR Coach enables coaches to initiate DUPR ratings for new pickleball players with a skill-based assessment technology. Once trained, coaches can view videos of players and produce provisional DUPRs for players. The DUPR Skills Subscription enables players to receive coaching via the My Pickleball Coach app to improve their DUPR rating. Players can set a level-based goal, i.e. moving from a 3.5 DUPR to a 4.0 DUPR, and access DUPR-specific coaching from Martina Kochli, John Cincola, Jordan Briones, Zane Navratil and Collin Johns, among other DUPR Coaches, via the My Pickleball Coach App.

Q&A with Pro Pickleball Player Taylor Garcia!

Meet Taylor Garcia, a pro pickleball player from New Orleans, LA. In August of 2023, she embarked on her professional pickleball career and has been traveling across the United States, aiming to ascend the rankings and secure a spot in the top 10.

Here are 8 questions where we get to know Taylor better!

How has pickleball changed your life?

As a competitive person, pickleball has become an outlet in which I can develop personally and continue competing in a sport at a very high level. I was a high performance tennis player for over a decade, and pickleball is sort of a continuation of that intense mindset but also so exciting because it's a completely new sport.

What is your favorite memory from your professional career so far?

Competing on center court multiple times against some of the best, established pro players on tour. I love playing for a crowd, so it's super fun when I get that opportunity.

What motivates you to become a pro pickleball player so far from home?

Being able to represent my hometown of New Orleans and also my current location of the D.C./Virginia area means a lot to me. I have thoroughly enjoyed all the people I've met through pickleball and all their support – it's what keeps me going and inspires me to pursue more.

What athlete or person inspires you the most?

Nick Kyrgios is my favorite athlete because he doesn't take himself too seriously. At times I find myself stressing out on the court and this year, I've made it my goal to play a little more freely like Nick and really enjoy the moment because that's what it's all about.

What does your current training regimen look like?

Drill 4-6 days a week, lift 3-4 days a week, rest one day.

What is your greatest accomplishment in sports?

Becoming a 2x All-American in tennis and leading my team to our first NCAA Elite 8 appearance in 10 years.

What part of your game are you working on the most right now?

Doubles!

What do you do outside of pickleball?

My favorite thing to do is travel, but D.C. also has no shortage of things to do. I love going to the monuments and museums or trying out local restaurants. I'm a huge foodie and love to cook, so no matter where I am, eating with friends is one of my favorite activities.

For now, some of Taylor's best results are semifinals (4th place) at PPA Daytona and 5th in Beer City Open.
