How is a padel ranking calculated for the 2016 / 2017 season? what are the principles?

Extract from the 2017 competition guide:

There are two Padel rankings: a men's ranking and a women's ranking.

Warning: mixed events are not taken into account in the ranking calculation.

For each player, the best 6 tournaments or championships played during the sports year will be taken into account.

The ranking is individual. This is a rank of 1 to N.

To calculate the weight of a team, it is necessary to add the rankings of Padel of the 2 players composing the team.

A player Unclassified Padel will have a ranking equal to the rank of the last player of the French ranking + 1. So the lower the weight of the team, the stronger the team.

(Example: If the last ranked player is N ° 1450, a team consisting of two Unclassified Padel players will have a weight equivalent to 1451 + 1451 = 2902.

We must add the ranks (rankings) and not the points of each player.

In case of equal weight, the Referee is free to nominate the strongest team.

Warning: if a foreign player is not classified in the Padel in France (or has a very low ranking but has a very good ranking at the international level -RankingFIP-International Padel Federation), an assimilation of ranking can then be issued to this player, reflecting his level of play at best. In this case, thank you kindly approach the Competition Management-sberrafato@fft.fr
