The BWF World Ranking is the official ranking of the Badminton World Federation. It is used to determine the qualification for the World Championships and Olympic Games, as well as Super Series tournaments. Seeding of the draw at all BWF sanctioned tournaments is done using BWF World Ranking.[1]

Players under 19 years of age are eligible to rank in the World Junior Rankings, which were introduced in January 2011.[2]

Overview[edit]

The ranking points awarded based on the level and progress of the tournament from each player/pair. Ranking points calculated are based on the tournament participated by each players/pairs for the last 52 weeks. If a player or pair has participated in 10 or fewer World Ranking tournaments, then the ranking is worked out by adding the points won at the tournaments. If a player or pair has participated in 11 or more World Ranking tournaments, only 10 highest points scored in the tournaments during the 52 week period count towards their ranking.[3][4]

Points system[edit]

Points are awarded according to the following table:[3]

Tournament Winner Runner-up 3/4 5/8 9/16 17/32 33/64 65/128 129/256 257/512 513/1024
