EARNING POINTS

Players earn Ranking and Grand Prix points every time they play in a TBV certified event. Points are calculated using the following formula:

Division Base Points x Number of Teams Entered = Total Points Earned

1st Place = 100% of Points
2nd Place = 90% of 1st Place
3rd Place = 90 % of 2nd Place
And so on… with each place receiving 90% of the place before it.

DIVISION BASE POINTS

Each division has a base number of points that never changes.

ADULTS JUNIORS DIVISION POINTS
Open - 100
AA 18U 50
A 16U 25
B 14U 10
Unrated 12U 5
 
 
 

 


RANKING POINTS

RANKING = total of best 5 point finishes over the past 365 days (regardless of division)

Ranking points will be used to rank players, seed tournaments and used as one indicator of when a player needs to move up to the next division. Ranking points will be calculated on a per-athlete basis rather than a per-team basis, allowing athletes to switch partners freely without penalty.

GRAND PRIX POINTS

GRAND PRIX POINTS = total points earned for each event played within a season (specific to 1 division, but players can play in more than one division and earn points in more than one division)

The Grand Prix points system is a collection of points earned each year over a series of events.  Players earn points for each event played in using the TBV formula. Players earn points every time they play and prizes at the end of the season are based on a players total points earned during that season.

Points will be tracked for current Texas divisions and prize money/prizes will be awarded at the end of the season.

GRAND PRIX PRIZES

Prize money will be awarded at the end of the season. TOTAL PURSE for each division will be determined by the number of events in that division.

DIVISION TOTAL PURSE 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th
Men's Open            
Women's Open            
Men's AA            
Women's AA
