The purpose of our club ratings is to provide level play sessions at our club and to ensure that members attending those sessions are playing at the appropriate level to provide as much fun and closely-matched games as possible.
For new members, we ask that you self-rate using the skill description/testing documents above as guidelines and can attend level play sessions at your self-rated level. The board will observe your play and soon after joining/playing, we will provide you with a club rating.
Existing members should have a club rating already and must use that rating when attending level play sessions.
The board will review ratings periodically throughout our seasons and reach out to members if we believe their ratings need to be adjusted up or down.
If you believe you have received an incorrect club rating, please submit a request for a review here: https://forms.gle/niQgWmYowK9Qz6gS7.
The board will review your rating and let you know whether your request to move up/down has been approved or not. The board may also provide the member with a trial period at the requested level.
If your request is not approved, you also have the option to be assessed by our club pro (Matt Kawamoto) at the Hill Park courts for a $40 assessment fee. He will coordinate with the requestor to do a skills assessment based on the skill testing document above. He will also assess game play (3 games with 3 other members whose club ratings are at the challenged level). Similarly to above, he will approve the member moving up/down to the requested level or staying at their current level and will provide feedback as needed.
