    Ranking

    The WCTA rankings are the merit-based method used by the World Chess Tennis Association for determining the qualification for entry as well as the seeding of players in all singles and doubles tournaments. All players and teams start the year with zero points, and accumulate points from tournament to tournament based on their performances. The player and team who ends the chess tennis season with the most points is crowned the year-end No. 1, and the top 8 players and teams participate in the most prestigious one, the World Chess Tennis Championship. The points distribution is currently being developed together with the list of qualifying tournaments.

    Specifics

    • For all official event such as tournaments and championships, a referee stands on the court during tennis rounds and sits alongside the two players during the chess games; his job is to ensure that both players abide by the game rules.
    • Players have to wear a soundproofing helmet to cut out the noise of the crowd.
