WPA Artistic Pool World Ranking System
1) All players with world ranking before the 2011 WPA World Artistic Pool Championship
were awarded “position points” for their ranking place with 105 “position points” assigned
for 1st place.
2) To make the transition from the old system to the new system, the “position points”
were tripled. (Example: 105 + 105 + 105)
3) Each ranking tournament has a base point value – the 12th place preliminary points that
are used to determine the top 12 players for the playoffs in that tournament calculate this.
(2011 WC base value was 187 points)
4) The players from 1st thru 12th place receive a set point value for their place of finish
as follows: 1st = 65, 2nd = 51, 3rd = 42, 4th = 34, 5th = 29, 6th = 25, 7th = 22, 8th = 19, 9th = 16,
10th = 14, 11th = 12, 12th = 10. These points are added to the established base score.
5) The 1st thru 12th place finish is determined by their preliminary score at the time of their
elimination in the playoff rounds. (This is the same way as done in prior tournaments)
6) Players from 13th place and lower receive their preliminary scores for that tournament.
7) Discipline winners receive 1 additional world ranking point per discipline won.
8) World rankings are based on a maximum of 4 scores. (Example: 105 + 105 +105 +
2011 WC points)
9) Players with “triple position points” will replace one “triple point value” with the score
they register in their next world-ranking tournament.
The WPA-APD board placed their stamp of approval on this new world-ranking
system with recommendation from the APTSA board. These rankings have full
documentation and are current as the “official” WPA World Rankings for Artistic
Pool in accordance with established WPA / WPA APD guidelines.
The APTSA board would like to thank all players and members for their patience while we
were working on this new system. For all APTSA information, please go to APTSA.US.
