English Table Tennis Rankings
Table Tennis England commissioned a new Ranking System in the 2014/15 season. This document will provide a guide of how points are calculated using the new system.
Our old computer rating system was written by Adam Twiss in 1993 and was greatly admired, but had limitations as a standalone system.
Our new computer rating system has been developed by Table Tennis 365 and builds on the principles of our old system, whilst addressing the known limitations. Our new system has a number of major improvements which will lead to more accurate, faster and fairer ratings for all.
Major changes in the new system are:
- We now operate on a single fixed season of 1st August to 31st July.
- Results will be applied from the date of the tournament and no longer from the period the results are entered in.
- Improvements have been made to decrease the amount of time it takes to achieve a new rating and appear on the lists.
- Input errors, when corrected, are recalculated from the date of the tournament, leading to more accurate ratings for all.
This guide aims to cover how the principals of the Ranking Scheme work in a manner suitable for the experienced and novice alike. Should you have any questions unanswered by this guide, please contact us on 98 and we will endeavor to answer them for you.
