Agape Pickleball is happy to announce that we are a DUPR facility and can be found online as Agape Pickleball Club. This allows matches played at our Agape locations can be counted toward a player’s rating. 
 
Dynamic Universal Pickleball Rating is the most accurate and only global rating system in Pickleball. All players, regardless of their age, gender, location, or skill, are rated on the same scale between 2.0-8.0 based on their match results.
 
DUPR is free and anyone can have a rating. One match result is all it takes to have a DUPR rating, and 5-10 match results are all it takes to have an even more accurate rating. If you’ve ever played in a Pickleball tournament you most likely already have a DUPR rating and can claim your account at mydupr.com.
