  1. Win ranking points by playing in tournaments that are graded.
  2. Will be ranked if you have played in 1 or more graded tournaments in the last 12 months.
  3. Win ranking points by playing in and winning matches in tournaments.
  4. The higher level of tournament the more ranking points are won.
  5. The further reached in competition the more points are won.

Doubles rankings relate to the performance of the individual, not pairs.

If a player/pair:

  1. Had a bye in the first round and lost in the second round – they receive first round loser’s points.
  2. had a bye in the first round, won in the second round and lost in the third round – they receive third round loser’s points
  3. Had a walkover in the first round and lost in the second round – they receive second round loser’s points.
  4. had a bye in the first round, walkover in the second round and lost in the third round – they receive third round loser’s points.

 

Ranking

The Ranking Points to be used to determine the ranking of individual players are calculated as follows:
For players who have competed in:
8 or fewer tournaments their ranking points are determined by dividing their TOTAL points earned by 8.
9 or 10 tournaments their ranking points are determined by dividing their TOTAL points earned by the number of tournaments played.
11 or more tournaments their ranking points are determined by dividing the TOTAL of their best 10 results by 10. Players are then ranked in descending order of Ranking Points.


The table below show the points awarded for each of the tournaments played in.
