New Ranking System for 2013/14 Season

The SMPT are pleased to announce the new format for the World Rankings 2013-14. We would first of all like to thank all the players who contributed, we are always keen to listen to suggestions on improvements and we hope the new World Rankings format will be an improvement from last season.

This season players will earn ranking points with every point they accumulate in the round robin stages, there are also a lot more points up for grabs in the knock-out stages. The points for the World Masters are slightly higher due to the event being our biggest in terms of players entered and matches played.

The breakdown of points is as follows

UK Open, European Masters, Swedish Masters, English Masters
100 Pts 1st
80 pts 2nd
70 pts 3rd
60 pts 4th
Last 8 – 50 pts
last 16 – 40 pts
last 32 – 30 pts
last 64 – 20 pts
last 128 – 15 pts
