A Nike British Tennis Ranking is a measure of where you stand in your age group nationally and within your county.
Rankings are calculated every week (on a Friday) based on points awarded to players for competing in tournaments in the Seniors, Open, 18, 16, 14 and 12 & under age categories.
In order to get an age group ranking you need to have a player rating and then compete in an LTA sanctioned tournament (graded 1-5) Please find out here how to get a British Tennis Rating.
NOTE: The junior age group ranking lists are based on performance in domestic competitions only. The top players in each age group will be competing at international level and have Tennis Europe and/or ITF rankings and may not, therefore, appear high up on the GB listings.
Ranking points are only awarded for Grade 1 (highest) to Grade 5 tournaments. Grade 6, 7 and U tournaments do not carry ranking points but are important in terms of gaining competitive experience and learning the skills of the game.
Different grades of tournaments have different points allocations; the higher the grade, the more points you can get. Only one set of points is allocated per event i.e. a player who competes in both the qualifying and main draw events of a tournament will only get one set of points. Any team competition graded 1 to 5 will also count towards your ranking although points may not be added until the end of the competition.
To find out how many points are awarded for different levels of competition, use the following charts:
Ranking points for individual competition
Ranking points for team competition
Your ranking is calculated using your best 6 tournament (best 3 for Seniors) performances over a rolling 12-month period. This means that some of your ranking points will drop off if the tournaments you played in were more than 12 months ago.
There are 3 categories of national rankings: ITF Pro Circuit, ITF Junior Circuit and Tennis Europe. These rankings are used as orders of merit for tournament acceptance. This document explains how the listings are compiled.
Here are the most recent ITF Pro Circuit listings (posted July 2014):
