New junior age groups – a quick overview

For the new season, the FIR council has voted to accept new junior age groups. The previous age groups were u21, u18, u16, u13, u11, which are now u21, u18, u16, u14, u12.

We have adapted our junior ranking matrix accordingly, not just to interpolate for the new groups, but to revamp the scaling factor between the groups. Previously, for example, winning u12 got you more than half as many ranking points as winning u21 whilst now it is only 40%,

As the Hong Kong Open was the first tournament with the new age groups, this has affected the March Rankings.
