A ranking system built for you

SportyHQ lets you tie into our versatile ranking algorithm, or bring your own points-based or custom system.

sportyHQ Use our ranking algorithm

Use our ranking algorithm

If you’re looking for the fastest way to get your players a ranking, then SportyHQ is here to help. We’ve spent countless hours developing and refining our algorithm to work across a large variety of sports, and to get people accurately ranked as quickly as possible.

Integrate with SportyHQ features

Our ranking system primarily takes the result and difference in ratings between players to determine any change in ratings to both players. From there, we analyze result history, our confidence in the accuracy of a player’s current rating, and a host of other factors to make a more educated calculation.

Instant updates

When a result is recorded in SportyHQ, player rankings are updated instantly. By creating a dynamic ranking, players become more engaged and will follow their progress more often.

Intelligent ranking lists created automatically

SportyHQ automatically groups players into ranking lists based on their affiliations. For example, a new member at a club is automatically added to that club’s rankings. A new member of a governing body is added to its rankings. From there, a club or governing body can customize ranking lists as needed.

Encourage play

We believe an effective ranking system encourages people to play more often. We do this by requiring players to record results on a relatively consistent basis and with no over-penalization for players who lose. After all, players tend to improve quickly and lose ability slowly.

Bring your own points system

If your organization uses its own points-based ranking system, then SportyHQ has full support for you to upload and manage your ranking system. We’ll enable you to:

  • Create categories (such as age groups or levels)
  • Upload points tables for different sized draws
  • Assign points tables to tournament and league draws
  • Calculate points quickly and easily at the end of an event
  • Publish rankings manually or automatically

To learn more about our points-based system, please contact us or visit our solutions page for governing bodies.

sportyHQ Create finely tuned ranking lists

Create finely tuned ranking lists

SportyHQ lets you create an unlimited number of ranking lists based on your own set of criteria. Not only can you create age and gender based rankings of your members, you can fine tune rankings on many other criteria such as:

  • Events played in
  • Limited number of results (e.g. their best 3 games)
  • Bonus points, as applicable
  • Membership status (e.g. active members only)
  • Separate ranking groups (e.g juniors, adults and/or seniors)

In addition, we also support combined rankings where you include a percentage of points from multiple ranking lists. A typical example of this in tennis or badminton is to include a combined ranking of 100% of a person’s singles points plus 30% of his/her doubles points and 20% of his/her mixed rankings points to give him/her an overall combined points total.
