RANKING SYSTEM AITA

The AITA has been following a Ranking system for each age group for a number of years. We have been modifying and updating the system to suite the existing requirements and make it as perfect as possible.

In 1998 with the internationalization of the tournament Structure in India, AITA updated it's Ranking System by also taking into account the ATP, WTA and ITF Points so that the Rankings give a true picture of the quality of the players. This system has worked well and has been accepted by the players.

During Centenary Celebrations of the Australian Open in Jan 2005, Tennis Australia made a presentation to Mr. Anil Khanna on the Tournament Management System (TMS). He was briefed on the system that the Australians are following for ranking their players; the system has been tried, tested and consolidated for a number of years. It takes into account a large number of parameters. After discussions in the Executive Committee Meeting in February 2005 it has been decided to introduce this system in India with a few modifications to suit our requirements.

The system can be used for all age groups and provides proper weightage for award of ranking points to players participating in higher age group tournaments. The system has been a great success in Australia. We plan to introduce this system on a trial basis from 01 Jul 2005.

Men/ Women Rankings

The System that we are following at present will remain the same. We have rankings for Singles and Doubles as is being done by ATP/WTA. The ATP/WTA ranking Points are multiplied by five and added to the points obtained from the best six AITA tournaments during the past 52 weeks. To encourage players to participate in international tournaments we award AITA ranking points for the Qualifying event. AITA ranking points are not awarded, where ATP/WTA awards ranking points for qualifying event. In Series of tournaments the AITA ranking points awarded in individual legs are added to count as one tournament ( i.e. two or three Futures or first three legs of Satellites together will be counted as one tournament).

Under 18 Rankings

This Ranking is a combined ranking as is already being followed both by ITF and AITA for more than a year. We take the best six singles points plus one fourth of the best six doubles points from AITA ranking tournaments to which we add the ITF Junior points multiplied by two and the Singles Men's / Women's ranking points.

Under 16 Rankings

This Ranking is a combined ranking as is already being followed both by ITF and AITA for more than a year. We take the best six singles points plus one fourth of the best six doubles points from AITA ranking tournaments to which we add the U/18 ranking points.

Under 14 Rankings

This Ranking is a combined ranking as is already being followed both by ITF and AITA for more than a year. We take the best six singles points plus one fourth of the best six doubles points from AITA ranking tournaments to which we add the U/16 ranking points.

In this way you can see that a player is encouraged to play in higher age group tournaments as the points obtained by them are added to the points in the lower age group before the final rankings are made
