The GotCourts League is the first entirely open tennis format in Switzerland. All tennis players in Switzerland can join in.
The GotCourts rating guarantees the comparability of all skill levels and ranks you within the universal GotCourts leaderboard.
You will receive a projected rating and your initial ranking position after your first tennis match has been played. Each match influences both.
Once you have played five tennis matches, your rating will be validated, and you will be placed in one of the seven match leagues.
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.
The grand finale will occur in autumn: the final tournament.
You can play in your league for one of the coveted places in the GotCourts League finals from spring to autumn. An invitation will be sent to the best eight tennis players in each league. Do your best. You can expect attractive prizes and a fantastic atmosphere.
The final tournament will take place on October 9 and 10, 2021, at the national training center at Swiss Tennis in Biel.
No, to participate in the GotCourts League you do not need a player license from a national association. The GotCourts League is a completely open championship format in which all tennis players in Switzerland can participate.
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
