Protected Ranking (PR)
- Players must inform the board about their absence for the protected ranking to start running*.
A list of players with protected ranking will be kept in this thread. To get a PR
, the players absence from TT must be continuous for at least 3 months and their absence must be less than 18 months ago. The number of PR
's will depend on the length of absence:
3 months out = 3 PR
4 months out = 4 PR
5 months out = 5 PR
6 or more months out = 6 PR
For the PR
that a player is able to use for entries, we will use the average ranking of the first 6 weeks that the player was out. PR
applies to both singles and doubles and we'll have a separate PR
for both of them.
* Players are allowed to ask for a PR after they're back from their absence, but they must request it before they commit to any tournaments.
