How does Accu-Stats’ TPA player rating system work?

The Tournament Performance Average (TPA) can be used to measure a player’s performance in a match or tournament. It is a single number (like a batting average) based on the following formula:

TPA = (# of Balls Made) / (# of Balls Made + # of Errors)

Errors are any of the following:

  • missing a shot
  • getting out of position
  • missing a kick
  • scratching on the break
  • failing to execute a safety successfully

For example, if you make 100 balls in a match and commit 25 errors, your TPA would be 0.800 (100/125) or 800 (100/125*1000). A perfect score, with no errors, would be 1.000 or 1000. A TPA above 850 over a long match is considered pro level, and TPAs above 900 are considered world class.
