As a response to the growth of the NEC Wheelchair Tennis Tour and the increased number of events that players have access to, the ITF Wheelchair Tennis Committee has decided to raise the number of tournaments counting towards the ranking points total of women and quad players.

From the start of the 2013 tour, the women's rankings will include the best eight tournaments for each player, as opposed to seven in 2012, while quads will count their best seven events, up from six in 2012. The number of tournaments counting for men will remain at nine.
