The GotCourts Rating System

Projected rating

You will receive a projected rating and your initial ranking position after your first tennis match has been played. Each match influences both.

How does the GotCourts League rating work?

For your rating you start with 1'500 points. Plus or minus points are distributed for each game won or lost. The number of points to be awarded is calculated by the GotCourts League rating level difference of the opposing players. If you play against an opponent ranked higher in the GotCourts rating, you can win extra points. If you lose, your loss of points is much smaller, corresponding to the increased probability of losing. Conversely, a win against a lower-ranked player results in fewer points than are deducted for a loss against that player. You can find more information in the GotCourts League rules.

Will I be rewarded if I play a lot?

Yes, playing is generally rewarded. For each match played, both players will be credited with 2 additional activity points. These are independent of and in addition to the points credit for the winner or the points deduction due to the defeat. The activity points are credited each time a match result is confirmed.

What happens if I don't play at all?

One of the objectives of the GotCourts League is to promote the playing of tennis. This is also reflected in the rating system. At least four matches should be played per month. In this way, points deductions for inactivity can be avoided. For each match missing to the minimum goal of four matches, a deduction of two points is made. The calculation is done at the end of each month. So you can lose a maximum of eight points per month for not playing.
