Rankings Explained

Points from 2014 onwards are available for the final round (main draw only) 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.

Tournaments Eligible Towards Ranking

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 for inclusion until the points from the next respective editions of those events become eligible for consideration.

Points Eligible Towards Ranking

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).

Ranking Release Dates

New rankings will be published each Monday unless otherwise stated*.

* Rankings due for release on 31 August will be postponed until 1 September due to the ITF office being closed for a public holiday.

Christmas/New Year

Due to the closure of the ITF London office over the period 25 December 2014 - 1 January 2015, there were no rankings released on Monday 29 December. As a result, points earned by players during the week commencing 8 December were included in the rankings released on 22 December.

Advancement through a bye or walkover will not be equivalent to winning a round unless the team has played and won a match in the same Draw.

No points will be awarded to teams who are deemed to be a 'no show' and also to withdrawals made before first match played.

Advancement by virtue of retirement or default following the commencement of a match will be equivalent to winning a round.

If a team receives one (1) or more consecutive Byes and loses their first match played, the team will only receive ranking points from the round preceding their elimination and the team will receive prize money for the round reached.

Ranking points will not be awarded to any player who is not eligible to compete in accordance with the Rules and Regulations.

Where a round-robin format has been used, players will only be eligible for the full amount of ranking points providing they have won a minimum of two (2) games. A team winning fewer than two (2) games will receive 50% of available points.

No points are awarded in qualifying events.

* Ranking points will be awarded to all players in a team based on their team's final standing

* No ITF Beach Tennis Ranking points will be awarded to a player unless he/she has won a minimum of one (1) live doubles match

* For final team positions 1-4: Full points will only be awarded to players who have won a minimum of two (2) live doubles matches. If a player has won only one (1) live match, 50% of points will be awarded.

For the purpose of this rule a ‘live match’ is defined as any match, the result of which could affect the outcome of the tie. For avoidance of doubt, a decisive Mixed Doubles match is a ‘live match’.

A win through walkover will only be considered a match won for a nominated player who has played and won a live match in that year’s event.

A win through retirement will be considered a match won for the nominated players.

A Bye will not be considered a match won.
