DUPR Rating System Explained
Anyone can get a DUPR rating. It is free. Just download the DUPR app for your phone and/or go to the DUPR website and create an account. Make sure to go the extra step and join as a Landings Club member.
The best way to get your true rating is to play within your age group and current rating range. The way to increase your rating is to register more wins than losses. Playing mixed or gender specific games is a good idea.
Playing vs those with higher ratings can increase a rating faster but you need to win games, not lose and come close.
Playing vs those with lower ratings means you need to win convincingly example 4 out of 5 games.
1) DUPR has gone to wins and losses. Point differentials do not matter.
2) Gender and age are not part of the algorithm
3) Ratings still play a part
4) It will take 10 or so new matches for a rating to adjust to the new system.
5) There is a new site genie.mydupr.com. You can put in players and scores of games. It shows what your rating is and what it will go to.
Coming but not here is a Reliability Rating. It is really for Tournament Directors to make sure sandbagging is no longer an issue.
Some of the things the Reliability Rating will be taking into account:
Playing with a lot of different players
Playing with a lot of different partners
How many different players your partners and opponents have played
Playing is some tournaments
Playing against team ratings
