Junior players’ ratings cannot decrease but what happens if someone is ill or injured and his/her ranking drops?

Players’ rankings may fluctuate however, since rankings are based on the 6 best results recorded over a rolling 52 week period, players should be able to maintain their positions despite periods of inactivity. However if you are ill or injured for a considerable period of time it’s likely that your level of play will deteriorate so a drop in ranking position is reasonable. Wild cards may be available for any player unable to compete due to illness or injury where this has had a considerable impact on his/her ranking position.
