After receiving feedback and comments from members and players, counting system junior ranking was decided to update and change, to have a combined rating of the player, regardless of age, but maintaining separation for children (Boys Overall and Girls Overall). Each player will receive a rating according to the number of points, received in the past 12 months, regardless of age, in which he played, where the four best results are divided into four. Rating individual age groups will be published on the website, as before, filtered by age category.
The main reason is to improve the system changes and improvements determination and comparison of various categories rated tournaments and different levels of registered players (level of competition).
The new system will adhere to our requirements, the assignment of the appropriate number of points in the cases, where players have to or want to play in a different age category. Presently, player, which begins play in the older age group before the transition into this category of age, It has no rating.
The new system has a smooth transition to the higher age category, since all the points received by the player remain in the ranking of him. The combined rating also allow proper seeding players, if they begin to play in a different age category.
The advantage of the new system is also a significant simplification of calculation and updating rating. It will no longer need to manually convert TS files in an Excel file and upload them to the site. Everything will be automatically processed directly in a web environment.
Tournaments will be divided into the following categories:
- Europe championship (U19) / European Championships (U19)
- Super Series / Super Series
- Grand Prix / Grand Prix
- Junior open / Junior Open
Each category will have a different rank, which will affect the number of points, which will be taken into account in the rating.
also tournaments [even one category] They will be divided into three levels:
Each level of the tournament will also have a different rank, which will affect the number of points, which will be taken into account in the rating. level of competition will be determined by the composition of the players, in the tournament. Higher level players give more points in the ranking.
The existing system of age groups will be saved:
- U13 / U15 / U17 / U19
Each age group will have a different points scale (like the new system of Masters Tournament [masters system]), to create a combined ranking of all juniors regardless of their age.
