Each GLTA player has a RANKING, and that RANKING is used to seed our tournaments.  Your RANKING is determined by the average of the POINTS you earned in your last four tournaments completed (or 1.75 for your first tournament or by 2 for your 2nd and 3 for your third).    Also, the total numbers of tournaments played (in your lifetime)are used to calculate your order  in the ranking.  The more tournaments you play, you will increase your ranking when tied with individuals that have the same point average.  In DOUBLES we seed based on the strength of the team and not one player on the team.   The combined ranking determines the seed.
