Quick Guide to the Grading ListThe Match Hub Grading List is a National list of all competitive tennis players, regardless of age and gender.
Searching the List
You can search the list by any combination of the available criteria.
All players gradings are recalculated twice per month - as at the 15th and the last day of the month (except there is no update on Jan 15th). It usually takes a day or two after these dates for the website to be updated. This involves processing all new interclub and tournament results. The date of the last calculation is always shown at the bottom of the page.
A player automatically moves up a Grade when their points place them in the range of the of the next higher grade. After promotion a player receives 2 months immunity from being downgraded (except for grade 1).
Grade DemotionA player moves down a grade if their points drop below the bottom of their current band. However if the player has immunity then the player will instead be placed at the bottom of their current Grade. Immunity lasts for 2 months after a grade promotion. NB: All players have 2 months immunity from Oct 1st 2019.
The Rank column shows each players National ranking as at the date shown beneath the List. Players who have just recently been added will have a rank of zero until the next grading calculation is run. The # column to the left of Rank shows the ranking of the players in the currently selected list (e.g. 14 and under Boys in Wellington). Rankings are not assigned to players who have not played for 2 years.
Match Hub also maintains Doubles gradings using the same concepts as for Singles. In Doubles matches, the average of each partnership's points is used to determine adjustments. Mixed doubles matches are also counted.
Player CodesYou must be an affiliated tennis club member and have a Player Code to be listed on Match Hub or play in any Tournament on the National Calendar. Player Codes are assigned by your Club or Association.
New players are added to the Grading List at a level relative to their playing ability. Generally this is done by assigning them the same Grade as other players who are known to be of similar ability.
