About the Rating System

Racquetball Player Rating System

The racquetball player rating system is based on a modified version of the ELO system, which has been in use for over 50 years to rate players in different types of games and sports - especially chess players. Modifications have been made to the ELO system to more closely reflect what actually happens on the racquetball court. Instead of just games won and lost in a match, the modified system takes into account the score of the game. Ratings will adjust differently for close games compared with games with wide point margins.

The racquetball rating system has also been aligned with traditional tournament divisions and playing levels. Please see the chart below to see how the rating scores are aligned with divisions:
