PSA Ranking Points

PSA World Ranking points are earned based on the standing of a tournament. Tournament categories are determined by the amount of prize money (total compensation). Players automatically receive ranking points appropriate to their final placing in a tournament.

PSA World Rankings
PSA players competing in PSA World Tour tournaments earn points based their final position in the event according to the schedule below. The total number of points a player accumulates in any 12 month period is divided by the number of tournaments played to give an average score (the minimum number of tournaments used is currently 10 tournaments for men and 8 for women).

This average score is used to place a player in the PSA World Rankings. Until a player plays 10 tournaments (men) or 8 tournaments (women), their total points’ accumulation will be divided by this minimum divisor (10 for men, 8 for women) and after that it will be determined by the formulae below:

For example a player who has competed in 13 tournaments will have selected their best 10 scores which will be accumulated and divided by 10 to give the player’s average.

PSA World Rankings are calculated and published on the first day of each month.

The PSA World Ranking is used for selection of entries and the determining of seeds in each PSA World Tour tournament.
