Updated Player Rankings
Here are the updated PADA player rankings that reflect the 2011 Summer Season.
These are the rankings we use to place teams in divisions, like the current Fall 2011 Season. A team’s ranking is an average of all members on the team. Teams are then placed in divisions based on their team average and how they compare/relate to other teams.
The number in the “Rank” column, is your overall or average rank. It is an average of your previous two years of season rankings, or up to six seasons if you play every season including summer. There is a rough outline at the bottom of the file that displays the basic benchmarks for AA, A, B and C divisions.
Let me know if you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is a description of how the rankings are calculated:
Each player has a number ranking that they take into each season, which has been updated by the last season they played.
Each division has a divisional multiplier, which is the average of all players playing in that division. (the DIV column)
A player’s individual season ranking is determined by their winning percentage and the divisional multiplier for the division in which they play. If they win exactly 50% of their games (only the Singles stats are calculated for obvious reasons) their season ranking would be exactly the divisional multiplier. If they win 100% of their games, their season ranking would be twice the divisional multiplier. (the SCORE column is their winning percentage for the season)
So, the formula for finding the ranking for each player, each season is: (Divisional multiplier * 2) * Winning percentage = Player ranking for specific season. (the SEASON column with the number value)
We also give players an “overall” ranking, which is just the average of their season rankings for the last two years or six seasons, whichever is the shorter length of time. (the RANK column)
