ONTARIO RANKING SYSTEM

Ontario Ranking System

The ORS will track tournament results for provincial and national circuit events and is designed for players, their parents, and their coaches to:

  • provide feedback on standing and progress throughout the season;
  • provide a tool in which players can set and measure goals;
  • provide a means to discover and develop among their peers;
  • motivate and prepare players in their development;
  • encourage higher levels of participation and player development

Badminton Ontario has outlined a ranking formula for use in all provincial rankings. Only results using Toernooi Tournament Software will be included in the Ontario Rankings. Rankings will now be available for singles, doubles, and mixed doubles.

A number of procedural things are required from Ontario athletes to ensure a smooth transition to the ranking system.  What’s required from our members?

  1. Each Ontario athlete is required to create a unique player account; at www.badminton.ca. Once you have created your account, you can simply Log In to: enter a tournament, modify your entry, or view your entry.
  2. Every time an Ontario player enters an on-line tournament in Ontario, you will be asked to provide your Membership Number (this will be two letters [ON] followed by five numbers.  Your unique two letter/five digit membership number is available by contacting Badminton Ontario.

Ranking Guidelines – Summarized

  • Ranking points will be the sum of an athlete/pairs top four results of eligible tournaments; over a 52-week span.
  • Athletes/pairs gain points according to how far they progress in the draw of a particular event.  Each athlete/pair must win at least one match in a draw to gain points. If an athlete/pair:
    • Had a bye in the first round and lost in the second round – they move to consolation round.
    • Had a bye in the first round, won in the second round and lost in the third round – they receive third round loser’s points.
    • Had a walkover in the first round and lost in the second round – they move to consolation round.
    • Had a bye in the first round, walkover in the second round and lost in the third round – they move to consolation round.
  • Athletes entering into consolation rounds should be receiving points based on which round they were eliminated.
    • Lost in main round in the first round (entering into consolation), won the first round of consolation and lost in the second round of consolation – they receive consolation second round loser’s points.
  • Athletes remaining in an age category will use their existing points for the first tournament in which they participate. For athletes moving up into an older age category, they will carry forward fifty percent (50%) of their points for seeding at the first tournament the contest in the new season.
  • If an athlete has a combination of results obtained within their respective age category and results obtained while playing up an age category or two, tournaments will use the most up to date number of points for the age category which the athlete is participating in for that particular tournament.
  • Rankings will be available for singles, doubles, and mixed doubles.  Ranking points will be the sum of an athlete/pairs top four results of eligible tournaments; over a 52-week span.

The following Ranking Points Tables will be utilized in calculating rankings regardless of age classification.
