#1515- Pickleball Ratings? – We Sit Down with UTR Sports’ CEO Mark Leschly to discuss

We had an opportunity to sit down with Mark Lashley, the CEO of UTR Sports. They have been in the ratings game for a long time & in this episode he explains why ratings and rankings matter.

A rating and a ranking creates level-based play so no matter what level you’re at, it’s fun to be on a court and you get to enjoy the experience with people at your level.

Mark explains how the rating system works to determine the level of a player.

It’s a really good episode that you’ll also get to understand why a good rating system is always going to be more accurate than a ranking system.

If you’re either a tournament player, playing league, you play at a facility that uses levels, or you’re just curious about ratings, listen to this episode and check out UTR Sports for yourself on how they impact the group and the environment in which you play.

Hola. Hello. Konichiwa. After 40 years playing tennis, I am now a full-time pickleball player and professional. As a 5.0 rated Senior Pro Pickleball Player and an IPTPA-certified Master Teaching Professional, my focus is on helping players like you learn to play their best pickleball. In 2016, shortly after starting to play pickleball, my friend Tom and I jumped into the highest division at the first US Open in Naples, Florida. That morning it became clear just how much there is to learn in this seemingly simple sport – a lifetime of learning if you so choose. Since 2018, I have been on a mission to share my knowledge of pickleball so other players can enjoy the game at a higher level and attain their pickleball objectives. When not studying or playing pickleball, I like to travel with my other half, Jill.
