Women's Ranking and Seeding Procedures - 2016-2017

Updated 8/17/2016

  • Women’s Doubles National Rankings will be updated and published after each event.
  • To receive an official end-of-the-year ranking, a team must play 3 events together, with one of those events outside of their home region. Nationals is considered an out-of-region event no matter its location and is the only NRT with this designation.
  • NRT points for a specific tournament exist for 12 months and are replaced by the following year’s event.
  • Removal of any earned NRT points due to rules infractions or punishment for player behavior will be enforced as instructed by the APTA Women’s Players/Ranking Committee.
  • Based on odd size draws, last chance play and feed-in draws, the points may have to be adjusted slightly to correctly award teams for their final placement."
  • Seeding will be done by Women’s Player’s/Ranking Committee for all NRT events and the draw will be done by a representative of the Player’s Committee and the local tournament director.
  • Seeding and Placement of Seeds (Listed and Non-listed) will follow the guidelines as follows:
    1. In all cases, a 3 NRT event average will be used for determining the order of the seeds and placements.
    2. In cases where a team does not have a 3 NRT average, 90% of the two individual’s next best results will be averaged and used to make up the necessary number of events to get to the 3 NRT average. This can be for 1, 2 or 3 NRT events if necessary. If a team has played 3 tourneys together, their average will be used even if the their average would be higher using the 90% rule with other partners. In instances where a player has been injured or pregnant and taken a year off, we will go back 2 years and take 50% of their points to calculate their average.
    3. The number of Listed and Non-listed Seeds will be determined by the number of participants and format of the event.
    4. Tournaments with 9-16 entered teams will have 2 listed seeds and up to 4 non-listed seeds; 17-32 entered teams will have 4 listed seeds and up to 8 non-listed seeds; 33-64 entered teams will have 8 listed seeds and up to 16 non-listed seeds; 65-95 entered teams will have 16 listed seeds and up to 16 non-listed seeds; 96-128 entered teams will have 16 listed seeds and up to 32 non-listed seeds.
  • Ranking points earned in a NRT event will follow the published National Ranking point schedule multiplied by the tournament weighting designated by the Women’s Player’s/Ranking Committee after the event is completed.
  • Tournament Ratings are calculated by adding up the total seeding points of the top 24 teams prior to each event. This will take into consideration the 90% rule if teams do not have the required 3 NRT results. The total number of points will then be compared to the APTA Weighting Schedule below to get the rating. Nationals will be calculated the same way and a rating premium will be added as to be evaluated and determined by the committee.
  • The Committee reserves the right to make adjustments to rating, seeding, or weighting procedures should any anomalies arise
  • The Quarterfinal Reprieve is NOT optional in Women’s National Ranking Tournaments. Failure to play in the Quarter Final Reprieve will result in loss of points and exclusion from that tournament the following year..
