Men's National Rankings

Due to unusual conditions this year:
NATIONAL RANKING TOURNAMENT SEEDING WILL USE COMBINED INDIVIDUAL PLAYER POINTS.
Team points are for team ranking only.
Both team and player rankings will include the best 3 results through the end of the 2020, after which the best 5 results will be included.

Men’s Doubles National Ranking Rules and Guidelines - 2020-2021

  • Men’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. THIS RULE IS SUSPENDED FOR THE 20-21 SEASON.
  • NRT points for a specific tournament exist for 12 months and are replaced by the following year’s event. THIS RULE IS SUSPENDED DUE TO THE PANDEMIC. DURING THE 20-21 SEASON, NO CURRENT TOURNAMENTS WILL FALL OF THE RANKING LIST.
  • Removal of any earned NRT points due to rules infractions or punishment for player behavior will be enforced as instructed by the APTA Players 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 and instructions for the pull of the draw for all NRT events will be done by the Ranking Committee and the local tournament director.
  • Seeding and Placement of Seeds (Listed and Non-listed) will follow the guidelines as follows:
    1. Previously, team points were used for NRT seeding. For the 2020-2021 season, NRT seeding and Grand Prix and Nationals qualification will use a combination of each player’s individual highest results (3 before January 2021 and 5 thereafter.) If a player does not have enough results since September 2019, prior results within 2 years will be included at 75%.
    2. Player A (Average of top 3 or 5 tournament results since September 2019) +
      Player B (Average of top 3 or 5 tournament results since September 2019)
      = Team Seeding.
    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.
    5. Events that host "B" tournaments or PTI events on the same weekend will receive additional Listed and Non-listed Seeding teams; this will be at the discretion of the Ranking Committee and the local tournament director.
  • Ranking points earned in a NRT event will follow the published National Ranking point schedule multiplied by the tournament weighting designated by the Ranking Committee after the event is completed.
  • Tournament Ratings are calculated by adding up the total seeding points of the top 16 teams prior to each event. The total number of points will then be compared to the APTA Weighting Schedule below to get the rating. Nationals will be evaluated year to year and adjusted as the Men's Players Committee sees fit.
  • The Committee reserves the right to make adjustments to rating, seeding, or weighting procedures should any anomalies arise
  • The Quarterfinal Reprieve in draws over 16 teams is OPTIONAL. In Premier 16 draws the quarterfinal reprieve is MANDATORY. If no matches are played, all teams receive 7-8th place points. If two teams play, regardless of what side of the draw they are on, the winner will receive 5th place points and the loser 6th place points. If one team wants to play and the other three do not, that one team will receive 5th place points and the other three 7-8th place points. It is the tournament director’s responsibility to ask the quarterfinalists prior to their matches what their intent on playing the reprieve is and to relay this information to the ranking committee.
