National Rankings Announced Men’s, Women’s, Men’s Over 40′s, Men’s Over 50′s

By MARK FULLER
We have been given the go-ahead from England Squash and Racketball to build the National Ranking for 2011. For those of you who followed the UK-Racketball Series in 2010 we used an algorithm to accumulate the points over the course of the five tournaments.

Before you entered each event you could see exactly how many points you would earn depending upon where you finished. This will be the first time that a similar points structure will be tried for the National Rankings.

All ESR sanctioned tournaments count towards your national rankings with each tournament type counting for slightly different points, a complete break down and explanation of this is available on www.uk-racketball.com

National Rankings April 2011

We have taken the results from the 2010 National Championships, the five Harrow UK-Racketball Series Events in 2010 and the North East Regional Championships in March 2011. These were the only events that we had a complete set of results for which is why they are the only events that have been used to construct this first set of rankings.

From now on we will include all ESR sanctioned events as long as the organisers submit results. It is our hope that within a year we will have literally hundreds of players from all over the UK included in the rankings.
