All tournament players in Scotland now have an ID number to allow BADMINTONscotland to implement the new Scottish ranking system on tournament software.
Following an extensive trial the new tournament software ranking has been formally adopted from season 2016/17. Any previous ranking system has now become obsolete.
The ranking lists give the total number of points awarded to each player, then selects the best 6 to count towards the ranking list for each discipline. There is also an age filter built in.
For seeding in level doubles and mixed events, the 6 tournament total for each player shall be added together then halved. Rankings for tournaments shall be taken from the ranking lists 3 weeks previous to the week number of the event.
