What are Ranking Points?
Ranking Points are at the heart of Racquet Network’s competitive league system. Players who wish to participate in our competitive leagues require Ranking Points in order to play. The more Ranking Points they have, the higher they rank in our standings.
Players in the top third of our standings are typically our most active players. Because they are near the top of the leader board, they get asked to play most often.
How to Get Ranking Points
In order to participate in a competitive league, you will first have to get some Ranking Points. As a new player, the simplest way to get started is to purchase 500 ranking points from our online Pro Shop. Within 24 hours of your purchase, these points will be added to your account and you will be able to start challenging and meeting other players in your league.
In Store Purchases
Racquet Network also gives out ranking points on every in-store purchase. If you have made a purchase from our southwest Calgary store since 15 March 2013, you will see a line on your sales receipt indicating the number of Ranking Points you have earned on your purchases. This means that you are eligible to join one of our competitive leagues and start playing as soon as you have completed all four of the steps listed at the bottom of this page.
Bonus Ranking Points
In addition to in store purchases, Racquet Network gives our players opportunities to earn BONUS ranking points. To get the most out these opportunities, Friend us on Facebook, follow us on Twitter, read our newsletters and visit our store. Our competitive leagues were set up to help our customers meet each other and find new people to play with. As long as you are actively involved in what we are doing, you should never run out of Ranking Points.
How to Use the Points You Have
Getting set up to use ranking points will require a little effort on your part. But once you are set up, you will be able to participate in all league activities. Here are the steps you need to take and the order that you need to take them in. EACH STEP MUST BE FULLY COMPLETED BEFORE MOVING ON TO THE NEXT STEP. If you follow these instructions carefully, you will be playing in no time.
