Here is the 2024 update of the table of levels of padel, in partnership between Padel Magazine et

New in 2024

The new feature for 2024 lies in the fact that player levels are now directly linked to performance in official competitions (tournaments). padel P100, P250, P500, etc…) with the display of ''Competition criteria''.

For ranked players who have played twelve tournaments in a year (one per month on average), the level is set by the ranking (national rank), but also by the average points obtained per tournament, and even the average rankings achieved. in tournaments.

Thus, the level of these ''confirmed'' players is now beyond any dispute, because it can easily be verified (list of rankings padel FFT, Ten'Up, etc…)

For players who have played less than 12 tournaments in a year, their level is calculated according to the average number of points won per tournament (indicated at levels 4, 5, 6 and 7).

This is again a criterion that is not very questionable.

For players not classified or out of competition, they can establish their average level based on games played with players whose levels are validated by the competition criteria.

Do you 100% meet the competition criteria for a level, or is your level set by your average points acquired in tournaments?

If you are level 5, announce ''level 5 validated'' in partner searches.

If you are level 6, announce ''level 6 validated''. Etc., etc…

Are you unsure about your level because you haven't played enough competitively to meet the criteria for a level?

Between 4 and 5, announce ''estimated level 4-5'' in partner searches.

Between 5 and 6, announce ''estimated level 5-6''.

This should make it possible to avoid questionable overvaluations, which each player of padel has already experienced in a club, in order to organize balanced games.
