Scoring

In singles:

  • players are graded at the start of the season and points are accumulated over the season for both a win and a loss, if a lower-graded player loses but beats their grade difference*
  • players move up a grade whenever they accumulate three points or if they beat a higher graded player
  • players move down a grade if beaten by a lower graded player.

In doubles:

  • there are no grades
  • each player has a different partner each week
  • each player in a winning pair gets one point
  • points are accumulated over the season.
Singles
  • Each match is first to 7 (with a tiebreak at 6-6).
  • Winner: 1 point
  • Runner-up: If the runner-up is a lower grade and beats the grade difference*: 1 point
Doubles
  • Each match is first to 7 (with a tiebreak at 6-6).
  • Winners: 1 point each

* Grade difference

Where the highest grade is 7

Lower grade – 1 = the number of games a runner-up, lower graded player needs to win to earn a point.

So, for example: grade 2 – 1 = 1.

A grade 2 player needs to win 1 game against a grade 7 player to earn a runner-ups bonus point.

Where highest grade is 6 or lower

Higher grade – lower grade + 1 = the number of games a runner-up, lower graded player needs to be from 7 to earn a point.

So, for example: grade 5 – grade 2 + 1 = 4.

7 – 4 = 3

A grade 2 player needs to win 3 games against a grade 5 player to earn a runner-ups bonus point.
