Rankings Explained



Points in 2014 are available for main draw final round reached at ITF Beach Tennis Tour tournaments (various scenarios can affect the actual points given - please see relevent sections of ITF Beach Tennis Tour rule book).

To receive ranking points a player must reach a round where points are available.

Points earned at a tournament will become eligible for inclusion within a player's 'Best 6' results in the rankings released three weeks AFTER the week commencing date in which the tournament was started.

Example: a tournament that began during the week of 6 May 2013 (week 19) will appear on the rankings released on 27 May 2013 (week 22).

A ranking is made up of a player's 'Best 6' results from the 52-week period leading up to, and including, the last eligible week date except that ranking points earned at the World and Regional Championships will remain active until the end of the next respective editions of those events.

 

New rankings will be published each Monday unless otherwise stated.

* Due to the closure of the ITF London office over the period 25 December 2013 - 1 January 2014, there were no rankings released on Monday 30 December. As a result, points earned by players at the G1 event in Brazil and the G2 event in Reunion held the week commencing 9 December were included in the rankings released on 23 December.

** The ITF London office will be closed on 21 April 2014, as a result the rankings scheduled for release on this date will be postponed until 22 April.
