First time 10 & under players, begin by competing at the orange ball level and can progress to green dot ball and 12 & under yellow ball competition. Learn more about Youth Progression and how to get started today!
Rankings are a point system that is used to determine qualification for entry and seeding (tournament draw placement). They also help athletes determine how they stack up against other competitors.
The ranking system will include results from singles matches and doubles matches in all sanctioned tournaments. The points earned in singles competition will be combined with the points earned in doubles competition to form one final point total that will be used to calculate the 12 Month Rolling Standing list. Players will receive credit for 100% of their points from their best six (6) singles events along with 15% of their points from their best six (6) doubles events. Standings will be published on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month. Significant win points for the current month will be calculated using only the 2nd Wednesday’s standing of the previous month.
