How It Works
Players earn points in pro tournaments for placement and wins. Results are updated at the conclusion of each tournament.
Titles are ranked for the following Pro events – Men and Women:
- Mixed Doubles
- Senior Singles
- Senior Doubles
- Senior Mixed Doubles
- Player points accumulate over a rolling 52-week window, with points awarded outside of that window expiring and being replaced by points awarded within that window.
- A player’s Top 15 results are represented in the rankings.
Points are awarded based on the following model:
|Designation||Gold||Silver||Bronze||4th||Non-place Wins (Main Draw)||Non-place Wins (Back Draw)|
