The next step in the verification process is to confirm seedings. PickleballBrackets.com automatically creates seeding based on the combined team or, for singles and skinny singles, the individual player rating. When setting up the event, Tournament Directors choose which rating to use. Players have doubles, mixed doubles, singles and skinny singles ratings. Seedings are based on the rating that corresponds with the event.
- The PickleballBrackets.com rating – This is a calculated rating derived from the results of all tournament matches that a player has participated in. If a particular player does not have a PickleballBrackets.com tournament rating, the seeding process will default to their self-rating.
- Self-Rating – All seedings will be based on the player’s self rating. Tournament ratings are ignored.
