Points Per Round Ranking System

RANKING REGULATIONS

 

Points per round (PPR) refers to how many points a player will earn should they make it to a certain round in a tournament. Remember, a player’s total points that count towards his or her rankings or standings list position is comprised of their best six results in any given 12 month period.  Additionally, as of January 1, 2016, the USTA/Midwest Section has implemented a bonus point system, which awards additional points for a tournament should a player win against a player ranked in the top 100 of that age division. Below you will find PPR tables for many different types of draws and the bonus point table. If you have any questions about the PPR or ranking in general, please email jrtourney@midwest.usta.com.

Southeast Michigan Junior Ranking Regulations

 

ALL PLAYERS MUST MEET THE FOLLOWING MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS TO BE CONSIDERED FOR A 2018 USTA/SOUTHEAST MICHIGAN DISTRICT RANKING:

A player must be a current USTA member, be a permanent resident within the boundaries of the Southeast Michigan District and be eligible for the category in which he/she competes.  A player must be a citizen of the United States or in possession of a valid alien registration card.

JUNIOR CATEGORIES TO BE RANKED:
Boys and Girls 10,12,14,16 and 18

AGE REQUIREMENTS:
You may play in an age division until the month in which you age up (or in other words, until your birthday month).  This means that players who are 12,14,16 or 18 years old may continue to play in their 12,14,16 or 18 age division until the month in which they turn 13,15,17 or 19, respectively.  (For example:  A player who turns 15 in October, may play in the 14-and-under age division up to and through September 30th.  Starting October 1st, this player MUST play in the 16-and-under age division.)  (A player may also elect to play in an older age division before he/she is required to do so.)

TOURNAMENT REQUIREMENTS:
A player must play and complete: a) the Southeast Michigan Muthig District Qualifier or; b) two Southeast Michigan District sanctioned tournaments in order to be considered for a final year-end District Ranking.  A player’s final ranking will be based on the best six (6) tournaments.  A player must have earned a minimum of 32 points in an age division in order to be included in the Southeast Michigan District Final Rankings. 

RANKING PERIOD:
The ranking period is for the calendar year - January 1 through
December 31.

RANKING AND STANDING LISTS

 
 
Although these terms are sometimes used interchangeable, rankings are not the same as standings.  Rankings are final, calendar year-end computations of a player’s performance for that period of time in one specific age group.  Standings, on the other hand, refer to a player’s current position within his/her division based on his/her previous 12 months of tournament results received to date in the player’s actual age group and any older age groups played.  Standings can and do fluctuate throughout the year depending on players’ match results.
 
 
For more information on Ranking and Standing Lists, please see our Junior Recreational and Competitive Handbook.
