Changes to junior ratings

Friday, March 04, 2011

Following a detailed review of the current system and after looking at a variety of change scenarios we will be making these changes: 

  • A player will need to achieve 4 qualifying wins to move up each rating level from 10.2 to 8.2 – as soon as a player gets 4 qualifying wins their rating will increase to the next level
  • From 8.2 upwards, a player will need 6 qualifying wins and a 60% qualifying win to qualifying loss ratio to increase to the next level – this criteria still needs to be achieved within a ratings run period
  • A qualifying win will continue to be defined as a win against a player rated the same or higher than you, however a qualifying loss will be changed to be a loss against only players rated lower than you

These initial changes will be made for 1st April 2011 and be the first stage of ongoing improvement to the Ratings System. More information on these changes, detailed FAQs and information on the other areas of the Ratings System to be reviewed can be found at
