IPTPA RATING SESSIONS AVAILABLE SOON

QCPC ratings are done in accordance with the IPTPA (International Pickleball Teaching Professionals Association) rating program.  You can be rated for levels 2.5, 3.0, 3.5 or 4.0  A rating consists of a series of skill tests followed by match play.  It takes about 1-1/2 hours.  The rating is administered by a Certified Rating Specialist (CRS).  The club chose this rating system because it provides an excellent basis to learn the skills of pickleball.  

If you are interested in participating in a rating, please add your name and skill level to be tested to the list HERE.  We will need 4 people testing for the same skill level for each session, except 4.0, which requires 3 participants.  Tentative dates are Friday and Saturday, October 25 and 26.  Ratings will be in the morning.  If there is interest, additional rating sessions can be held on Sunday morning October 27.  Signup for the rating slots will be published in early October. 

Dee Davidson from Buckeye AZ will be the Certified Rating Specialist (CRS).  She is an accomplished 5.0 player, an excellent instructor and an experienced CRS.  

For more information on the skill requirements, visit the IPTPA website at https://iptpa.com/iptpa-rating-skills-assessment/.
