A player rating is a measure of a player’s skills and gameplay relative to others while meeting the skill requirements of rated levels.
Having a rating system enables clubs to organize some play so that players of comparable skill can play together, which can boost fun — who doesn’t like a close game?
In addition to facilitating some recreational play, ratings may be used to determine a player’s skill level for tournament entry and club league play.
