The GotCourts Rating System

The GotCourts rating guarantees the comparability of all skill levels and ranks you within the universal GotCourts leaderboard. 

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.  

Validated Rating

Once you have played five tennis matches, your rating will be validated, and you will be placed in one of the seven match leagues. 

Tennis tournaments

GotCourts matches are usally played decentralized and individual. However, if the Corona situation will allow it, the GotCourts League will offer additional regional week-end tournaments and invite the seasons best to a final tournament. 

Summer tournaments

A series of GotCourts League tennis tournaments will be held in various Swiss regions in the summer of 2021. These summer tournaments are weekend tournaments organized by the GotCourts League, where you can play several matches against new opponents and truly improve your skills. All the matches will be taken into account for the GotCourts rating, and there are great prizes to be won. Further information on this will follow soon.

Frequently asked questions

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

 

Does a GotCourts League match count for the Swiss Tennis Ranking?

At GotCourts League matches you compete for points for your GotCourts rating. All players in the GotCourts League are registered in the same universal GotCourts rating system and the same ranking list. GotCourts League Matches do not count for your Swiss Tennis ranking. 

Can I play a mode other than the three Champions Tie Breaks in the GotCourts League?

Yes, you can play any other mode (Set, Best of Three, Fast Four, etc.). For more information please consult the GotCourts League rules in the FAQ section. 

Do Covid-19 protection concepts also apply to GotCourts League matches?

The current Covid-19 protection concepts of the tennis facilities on which a GotCourts League match is played must always be adhered to. In addition, the following always applies: keep your distance, no physical contact, and wear masks outside the court on the facility.
