The new ranking system
The BDDA is continuing to follow the Paralympic guidance of players playing in a classification system.
The BDDA will now have 2 new classifications: Standing Players (ST) and Wheelchair Players (W1/2). They will each have their own separate ranking tables and separate BDDA Winmau Masters and Open 2020 tournaments.
At the beginning of the year, players will be allocated the relevant classification (standing or wheelchair player) and they will stay in that classification for the whole season.
If during the season standing players need to use a wheelchair to play, through injury, illness or a deterioration of their disability, they can play from their wheelchair but will remain in the Standing Player ranking system. A player can ask to be or will be advised they have to be reallocated to the wheelchair player classification at the beginning of the next season if appropriate.
Players in the Wheelchair Classification at the beginning of the season cannot change to play standing during the season.
