The 2017 AIG National Junior Ranking commenced with the October/November Junior Opens 2016 in Balinlough, Naas, Belfast and the Winter Match-play Series 2016 (They are all 2017 tournaments)
Following an extensive review of transition points in national junior rankings it has been decided by the Junior Development Committee of Tennis Ireland that transition points will not be carried over into 2017 ranking as it is not possible to incorporate the points into the ranking system on tournament software.
NB: The following modifications to the 2017 junior rankings rules have been implemented and are effective immediately-Monday March 20th 2017
The ranking down principle explained-
Understanding the player’s new points as viewed in their ranking overview window
The new ranking down points will not appear as a separate entry in the players rankings but will be calculated in the player’s Total points
All players must be registered with an account on ti.tournamentsoftware.com in order to enter an open tournament and to be eligible for ranking points. Players without a Tennis Ireland PIN (an 8 digit number) can register at ti.tournamentsoftware.com/ using the ‘sign up ‘option.
Ranking Categories will determine the quantity of points gained by the player:
The new doubles rankings are effective from the start of the 2015/2016 season.
Doubles points will be calculated by applying the points awarded for the category down from the category assigned to the tournament on the TI calendar. e.g. In a Category 1 tournament where the singles winner gets 400 points the doubles points will be calculated based on a category 2 tournament (250 points to the winner).
Doubles ranking points are assigned individually to each player.
The same factors being applied to singles rankings for Tennis Europe and ITF events will be applied to national doubles rankings.
Doubles rankings are displayed in the same location as singles rankings here.
All junior players entering Tennis Ireland sanctioned junior open tournaments are eligible for ranking points depending on the round they reach and the Category of the Tournament. Players who do not win a match will not be awarded ranking points. Players will be ranked on THEIR BEST SIX tournaments. Reference the PDF document at the end of the page for additional detail.
Before the beginning of the season, all tournaments are categorised by the national competitions committee. The Category allocated to each event guarantees that players entering the event will receive that Category’s ranking points.
Tournament categories can be viewed on the Tennis Ireland Junior Calendar.
National Matchplays will be Category ‘National’ tournaments.
|Provincial Matchplay||Regional Matchplay||Regional -8 entries or less||Regional -3 entries or less|
|Leinster||Category 1||Category 2||Category 3||Category 4|
|Munster||Category 2||Category 3||Category 4|
|Connacht||Category 2||Category 3||Category 4|
|Ulster||Category 2||Category 3||Category 4|
Qualifying, Provincial and National Matchplay are considered as one item with points awarded only ONCE (highest points achieved within the series) at the end of each series.
Reference the PDF document at the end of the page for additional detail.
From October 2016 players moving up an agegroup in competition will be assigned a percentage of their previous points in their new agegroup until they acquire new ranking points in their new agegroup. These adjusted rankings are to be use by tournament organisers for the purpose of qualification for draws and seedings for the 2016 Winter Matchplay.
Points received in International Tournaments are converted to Irish Ranking points using a given conversion rate that reflects the strength of the event. Points will be awarded to players that didn’t reach the second round in a main draw if they won one or more matches in the Qualifying round. Points given will reflect the Category of the International Tournament. The onus will be on the player to submit the tournament details at the below link giving the details of the event they played in and a link to the draw webpage by 12 noon on the Tuesday immediately following the final date of the tournament.
Submit International Tournament details here.
If a player has two or more PINs in tournament software these can be merged to the primary PIN (i.e. the PIN they are using). All ranking points on the secondary (merged) PIN will be credited to the player’s primary PIN automatically once requested. To request this, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject ’merge PINs’ including the following details in the email:
All tournament organisers must have a Tennis Ireland PIN to access adminstrative privileges. Tournament Organisers without a PIN (an 8 digit number) can register at ti.tournamentsoftware.com/
All tournaments must load their results on Tournament Software and this is done using Tournament Planner. Tennis Ireland will order a license for this product for each affiliated club. The license can be requested by the tournament organiser by emailing email@example.com including the following details in the email.
When the online entry closes on Tournament Planner if you click on the ‘Tournament’ tab and select ‘player validation’ from the dropdown list the list of players without a Member ID (pin) will appear. The player’s pins must be input to the system before the end of the tournament. Otherwise the player does not receive Ranking Points. It is a requirement that a tournament organiser completes this process for each Tennis Ireland sanctioned tournament.
In order to ensure that the results when published can ‘count’ toward the AIG National Junior Ranking complete the scorecard in results. All details must be input and not just ‘win/lose’.
Tournaments should have a completed Tournament Software file available for 12 noon on the Tuesday following the final day of the tournament. This would allow rankings to be updated immediately so players can receive their ranking points by 6pm on the Tuesday following the tournament. If a complete file is not available within this time frame, the club could be fined for each week (or part thereof) that Tennis Ireland are awaiting the completed file.
