New Hawaii Pacific Section Junior Ranking Proposal

OLD

9.3 Open.
9.3.1 Age division is determined by “FAC Guide to Eligibility” and is open to all junior players.
9.3.2 A player who plays in any two USTA Hawaii Pacific Section (excluding ITF) sanctioned junior Open events within the same age
group and within a current 12 month period will appear on the junior ranking eligible ranking list. The monthly standings are an
accurate approximation of where a player would be if he/she were working towards a year end ranking. The final year ending
ranking will be published at the end of the calendar year.

10. Open Ranking Requirements


10.1 Players 12-18 years old may be ranked in singles and doubles. Players may be ranked in the following divisions: 12 and under,
14 and under, 16 and under, 18 and under (in singles and doubles). Match play requirements for ranking must be completed in
the same ranking age group for singles. Similarly doubles ranking requires all doubles matches to be played in the doubles
ranking age group. As a clarification, match play in one age group cannot count toward ranking in a different age group. As a
clarification, it is possible to be ranked in one age group for singles, and a different age group for doubles. All ranking
requirements must be done in the current calendar year.
10.2 End of year singles ranking requirements: End of year ranking will be determined by the points summed from the 6 highest
points per round values from any six Hawaii Pacific Section tournaments played in 2009.
10.3 End of year doubles ranking requirements: Ranking will be determined by the points summed from the 3 highest points per
round values from Hawaii Pacific Section tournaments.
10.4 End of year mixed doubles ranking requirements: Ranking will be determined by the points summed from the 3 highest points
per round values from Hawaii Pacific Section tournaments.
10.5 Alternative draw and match formats may be used.
10.6 Intermediate, novice, and national tournament results do not count for Hawaii Pacific Section ranking.
10.7 Points values are awarded based a player’s final position in the draw. Different tournament types have different point awards as
noted in the following table:

round results for doubles.
10.5 Points earned in higher age divisions will count down towards a player’s standing in one or more younger age divisions.

10.7 Challenger Division and National Tournament results do not count in the rankings.

COMMENTS
¾ Align the New PPR Table with the National Ranking Point Table (NRPT), Midwest, and Middle States Section Point Table
¾ The New PPR Table follows the NRPT and:
ƒ Adds a column for HPS Open tournaments (similar to the Midwest Section Point Table Level 6 events and Middle States Point Table Level 6
and 7)
ƒ Does not include points for other National Level 1 and 2 events (many sections allows points for National Level events)
ƒ Rankings are based upon best 6 singles events and 15% of the best 3 doubles events (National uses 15%; ITF uses 25% of doubles events)
¾ Standardize the draw format for all USTA HPS tournaments:
ƒ HPS tournaments draws are small; we need a standard format to assure players get a minimum of two matches for each tournament played
ƒ Either two singles matches (guaranteed consolation) or singles + doubles match
ƒ Minimum tournament draw size is set at 3
ƒ Eliminates the rarely used main draw with modified consolation format
ƒ Assures that every player will have the opportunity to play a consolation round for FIC format (draw size of 5 with FIC Quarterfinals creates
the exception that a 1st round loser will not have a consolation match)
ƒ Assures that the FIC Champion will not earn more points than the 4th place finisher (draw size of less than 8 with FIC Quarterfinals creates
the exception where the 4th place finisher could earn zero points while the FIC Champion earns points)
ƒ Like the NRPT and the Midwest Section Point Table, match results in a higher age division will count down to the younger age division (this
allows players to play up and provides tournament directors with the flexibility to encourage players to play up when an age division does
not meet the minimum draw size of 3)

Standardized Draw Formats for Tournaments with FIC (players assured to play two rounds)
Draw size 2 = Tournament directors should encourage players to play up
Draw size 3 = Round robin format
Draw size 4 = Consolation match for 3rd and 4th place
5 ≤ Draw size < 8 = Draw with FIC Semifinals (prevents exceptions)
8 ≤ Draw size = Draw with FIC Quarterfinals

Standardized Draw Formats for Tournaments with no FIC


Draw size 2 = Tournament directors should encourage players to play up
Draw size 3 = Round robin format
4 ≤ Draw size = Single elimination draw
