An Aegon British Tennis Ranking is a measure of where you stand in your age group nationally and within your county.
Rankings are calculated every week 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 an Aegon 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 for your progression to the higher grades.
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.
To find out how many points are awarded for different levels of competition, use the following charts:
Rankings points for individual competition
Rankings points for team competition
Your ranking is calculated using your best six tournament (best 3 for Seniors) performances over a rolling 12-month period. Because of this you may notice some of your ranking points dropping off if the tournaments you entered were more than 12 months ago.
A GB ITF national ranking can be assigned to British players who do not have an international ranking but wish to compete in ITF Pro Circuit tournaments. This ranking serves as an order of merit for tournament acceptance. The GB national rankings are determined as follows:
ITF Mens and Womens circuits (up to 500 of each gender permitted)
ITF Junior Circuit: the LTA submits a list of male and female players (up to 75 of each gender permitted) to the ITF. The lists are ordered based on a player's Aegon British Tennis rating followed by 18U ranking.
Submissions to the ITF are made quarterly, shortly after each ratings run appeals process.
