Key Information

  • Remember a match can only count once, and a match only counts as a 'win' if it is against a player at your rating or higher.
  • A ‘win’ for a player moving from a level 2 to a level 1 also counts as a participation match.
  • Mixed gender matches will count at Red, Orange and Green.
  • Doubles matches will count towards your played matches but not your wins total.
  • Your rating will change automatically as soon as you have recorded the correct number of matches and wins if required.
