Rankings

The People with an Intellectual Impairment (PWII) Australian Ranking is the mathematical method of ranking Australian tennis athletes with an intellectual disability or Autism on a calendar year basis.

The official PWII Australian Ranking system works on a 12-month rollover system – calculated by athletes’ total points in the preceding 12 months from when they first obtain a PWII Australian Ranking. Once this 12 month period expires, acquired points will cease to contribute to an athlete’s PWII Australian Ranking.

  • There will be three divisions of competition for PWII tournaments in 2019 – II-1 Intellectual Disability, II-2 Down Syndrome and II-3 Autism. Please see guidelines below for more information.
  • Each division will have separate Australian rankings for both singles and doubles.
  • With the addition of extra divisions, there has been an update of point value and the number of tournaments that contribute to an athlete’s ranking.
  • The new ranking system will officially be implemented and go live as of 1 July 2019. In the meantime, shadow rankings will be displayed below up until 1 July so athletes can adjust to the new system and see where they rank.
  • The current rankings will still exist and be used for seeding at all tournaments up until 1 July 2019.
