Oct. 16 Update on Ratings and DUPR

The Rating Committee established by your board met October 12. 2023 to consider our recent learnings with DUPR and to consider changes in our ratings operations and DUPR play. Here are the key points from that meeting.

1. Our club may periodically offer two types of DUPR events this indoor season, depending on: (i) demand, (ii) sufficient volunteers to run sessions and enter scores into DUPR, and (iii) venue availability. The two types of DUPR events are:
    • "Aspiring To" events (with "Aspiring to" in their event title), and
    • Other DUPR play events.

Demand for some of this play may be initially gauged by means of a survey. We also expect the frequency of these events will be low as we learn of member's interest (demand) and our volunteer capacity. Check our calendars frequently to stay abreast of opportunities, and please volunteer as a captain if you want to see more of these events. 

2. Effective November 1, we are removing one restriction to  our "Aspiring To" events; specifically, members may now register for such events even if they already have 20 or more DUPR scored games.
    • The events will still be restricted to those with a particular rating. E.g., "Aspiring to 3.0" events will only be offered to those with no club rating or with a 2.5 club rating.
    • These events will be available on a "first registered basis."
    • See each event description for more detail. Event descriptions can be seen by clicking on an event in one of our play calendars.
3. We have simplified the process for having a DUPR or tournament rating recognized as a club rating:
    • You can now apply anytime (not just on certain months and dates), and
    • Effective Oct 14, 2023, you will automatically get a rating under certain conditions:
      • You play your 20th DUPR-rated game in a club-organized "Aspiring To" DUPR play rating session, AND
      • You did not previously have an SAPC club rating.
4. All existing club ratings continue to be grandfathered. There is no imminent change to this policy. This means that even if your current DUPR rating is above or below your current club rating, your club rating will not be changed until and unless you ask for it to be changed.
    5. To be clear, clause 3 and 4 above mean:
      • If you play your 20th DUPR rated game in a club organized "Aspiring to" session and you previously had a 2.5, 3.0, 3.5 or other club rating, we will not change your club rating until and unless you ask for it to be changed.
      • If you play your 20th DUPR rated game in a club organized "Aspiring to" session and you currently have NO club rating, you will automatically be given one based on your most recent DUPR rating, within a few days of playing that 20th game. No exceptions to this.
      • If you play your 20th DUPR rated game in another SAPC DUPR session (not an "Aspiring to" session) you will not have your rating adjusted until you ask for it to be changed.
      • If you play your 20th DUPR rated game with other DUPR players, either on your own or at a non-SAPC event, you will not have your rating adjusted until you ask for it to be changed.
      • To have your DUPR rating recognized as your club rating, at any time after your 20th DUPR game, you must ask for it.

    DUPR is not perfect. Nor is any other rating mechanism.  Recent changes to DUPR rating algorithms are not helpful.  However, DUPR remains the most cost effective and viable basis for club ratings, for now.  We hope and trust that the expertise DUPR has, and the efforts they are making, will result in an even better solution in time.

    We also recognize some members' interests in skills-based improvement and feedback. To this end the club will continue to offer some mentoring sessions, and acknowledges that the Edmonton region continues to have multiple alternatives for those wanting more intensive mentoring and coaching.  We wish we could do more now, within our club -- but we think we're also doing great with the resources (volunteers and venues) we have now!  Onward and upward!

    Volunteer Opportunities

    More Categories in Your Profile

    Volunteering for your club is a great way to meet more people, and it is so satisfying to give back -- to contribute to a great organization and help your fellow members.

    There are now more volunteer areas identified at the end of your membership profile. Log into your profile and pick your areas of interest. Training is available for all teams and positions.

    The next time we need more volunteers in a particular area we will first go to those who have declared an interest via their profile.


    All Play and Rated Play

    Any member, whether club rated or not, may attend a session designated in our calendars as "All Play" or "2.5"

    If play is rated to a specific level, such as 3.0, 3.5 or 4.0, players must be rated at the designated level to play at that session.  If a session is designated with a "+" sign, such as "3.0+" or "3.5+" then attending members must be rated at that level or higher.

    For more info on ratings, read our Skill Levels and Ratings page.

    Organized Play Types and Times

    If you are a new member, you may be wondering how our organized play works.  Well we have several types of organized play. Most play types are described here. Reserved play is described here.

    Play times are in one or more of our many calendars. Watch these calendars and our news for season openings, closing and any changes.

    Outdoor play generally runs from late April or early May to early October at our Alpine courts.  Here's the calendar for Alpine. 

    Court locations are here.
