Wheelchair Points Per Round

USTA Wheelchair Points Per Round Information

The USTA Wheelchair Tennis Department announced a change in the ranking system used to determine wheelchair tennis rankings in 2011.  The "Points Per Round" ranking system was implemented successfully in January 2011.  It is the goal of the USTA to provide a ranking system that is easy to understand, encourages play, and reflects participation. 

Everything will remain the same in 2012. There will be no minimum tournaments to achieve a national ranking, but rather the best of a maximum of three tournaments to determine your final ranking for that ranking year.  It is our goal to encourage play so we are awarding participation points for each tournament you compete in.  While all players who play in a tournament will receive a national ranking it will be impossible for a person who does not win a match in a year to have a higher ranking than someone with a win.

The "points" tables will be assigned based on the highest sanction level and draw format of each tournament, ensuring a player knows what his/her potential points for each tournament will be.  There are four categories of tournaments within the ranking system:

Tournament Designations

Category I National:  These tournaments are sanctioned at the highest level the USTA offers.  They are sanctioned through the national office and offer the highest ranking points.

Super Category II National:  This is a newer tournament type for USTA Wheelchair Tennis.  Achieving a "Super" status in the Category II National happens by having a draw size of nine or higher in the previous year as a Category II. A tournament can have some divisions with a "Super" status and some with the traditional Category II status. You can view the Category II and Super Category II spreadsheet below to find your divisions assignment for 2012. These events are sanctioned through the Section Office and approved by the National Office.

Category II National:  These tournaments are sanctioned at the Section Office and approved at the National Office.  These events offer the lowest level of ranking points of all the "national" tournaments.

Local/Sectional:  These events are sanctioned by the Section or District office only.  They are a critical part of growing wheelchair tennis.  While they offer the lowest level of ranking points overall, they boost participation and develop the future of the sport.

Note: Playing a match (win or loss) in any one tournament will offer you the chance to be on the ranking list.

The USTA is very excited for a change in the USTA Wheelchair Tennis Ranking System.  It is our sincere hope that players will better understand how to schedule their year to achieve the ranking they want.  While we have been working on this process for over a year it will take some time to perfect.  Please provide us your feedback as the year progresses at wheelchairinfo@usta.com.  We strive to provide the best product possible to you and can only do so with your input.
