All About Rankings:
There are numerous ranking systems in use around the world, reflecting the various methods of computing points earned by players in a competitive circuit. Each system has its own benefits and disadvantages, and what might work for determining the best competitor (i.e. professional athletes) may not necessarily be the optimal system for encouraging play in the developmental levels (i.e. juniors.)
Tennis BC’s ranking system for BC Senior, Adult and Open Players has been in place for several years, and works well to reward participation and acknowledge strong results in provincial and national events.
Beginning in 2012, Tennis BC will also produce and post BC rankings in singles and doubles for Junior Events. This is the same system that has been successfully used for several years for our Open/NTRP and Senior tournaments. Description
