Help & FAQs

Can my rating go down?

A junior player’s rating cannot decrease.

Ratings of adult players can decrease but only in the end of summer competition season ratings run and in any case cannot decrease below a 6.2.

An adult player’s rating will decrease if, in the previous two competition seasons, he/she has recorded no results or, in failing to meet the rating increase criteria, has recorded no qualifying wins and more than one qualifying loss within the previous two competitions seasons (see 1.13 (b) on page 50 of the LTA Competition Regulations).
