Default Pickleball Rating

I have noticed that some Pickleball Tournament sign-ups require that you be rated at 3-3.5 or 4-4.5 or whatever. I am by no means ready for any tournaments, but am curious as to how the rating is established. Does anyone here know how one gets rated or who does the rating? Also, if you know, what are the different ratings and what differentiates them and how high do they go?

Default Pickleball Rating System

The PCVG does the ratings for the Rec Dept. Due to overwhelming numbers of players a self rating system is used. You can get a self rating form at any rec center, you read the ratings which range from 1.0 (new beginning player) to 4.5 (advanced tournament player) and rate yourself accordingly. Rating clinics are held 4 times a year for people who would like to see if their rating has changed. The next one is on Sept 28th at Seabreeze (see Rec News). Ratings are posted on the PCVG website pickleballcommunity.com

Here's a link to an old article about a pickleball rating clinic held at TV.

My wife and I have been in TV for 5 weeks. We love our new home and TV. She likes the pool and art classes and I love the golf. I want to learn to play pickleball. I went to Colony on Sat morning for the 101 class but did not know you have to sign up before hand. Is it necessary to take the 101,102 etc. classes in order to play.?Where is the next class?
