AEBF RANKINGS SYSTEM
The ranking system is made up of 3 components. The first is a player's win/loss percentage in the teams event at the National Championships. The second is rankings points awarded to those who competed in the Singles event and the third is rankings points awarded to those players who competed in the Doubles event. (Doubles no longer played)
TEAMS EVENT RANKINGS POINTS
Rankings points for the teams event are awarded on a player's win/loss percentage. The players are sorted first by the number of frames won and then by their win/loss percentage. The reason for sorting on the number of frames won first, and not solely on the win/loss percentage, is to avoid the situation of a player getting more rankings points for only playing 3 frames at a Nationals and winning all 3, than a player who played 24 and won 20,
The rankings points are accumulated over the previous four (4) National Championships with the most recent Championships being worth 100% of their value, two years past worth 75% of their value, 3 years 50 % and 4 years 25%.
If the format goes to 3 years then the percentage applied would be 33.33% and 66.66% respectively.
If the five year format is adopted then the percentage would be 20%, 40%, 60% and 80% respectively.
