DUPR Announced As Official and Exclusive Ratings Partner of the US Open Pickleball Championships

by The Dink Media Team on

The Minto US Open Pickleball Championships announced it is selecting DUPR (Dynamic Universal Pickleball Rating), as the Open’s official and exclusive ratings partner.

DUPR is pickleball’s most accurate global rating system. It evaluates players based on match results to provide a real-time, reliable assessment of their skill level. The US Open will use DUPR to provide transparency and help seed players in preparation for the 2025 tournament.

"There is only one US Open in Pickleball, and we’re proud to be a part of it," said Tito Machado, DUPR CEO. "We are also excited to integrate with Pickleball Den to provide ratings for clubs, tournaments, and leagues who choose to create DUPR-enabled events within the seamless pickleball platform."

"We are pleased to partner with DUPR and adopt it as the official and exclusive ratings partner for the Minto US Open Pickleball Championships. This reflects our efforts to continue offering a fair, open and transparent competition for players at the most prestigious tournament in the sport and The Biggest Pickleball Party in the World," said Ben Weinberger, Pickle4 President.

To further support players and tournament and club organizers, DUPR will seamlessly integrate into Pickleball Den (, the US Open’s official tournament management software. Later this summer, clubs, tournaments and leagues can enable DUPR for their events directly from the platform. This integration will streamline player ratings and profiles, allowing for easy and transparent creation of level-based competitions. Scores from DUPR-enabled events will automatically update player ratings, helping players understand their skill level, track progress, and find more playing opportunities.

Players registering for the 2025 Open will be required to have a DUPR account. Players who do not currently have a rating can go to or download the app to create a free profile and begin logging their match results to establish their rating.
