Texas Volleyball Tour is proud to be a part of the Texas Beach Volleyball Ranking & Points System. We support the TBV mission to unite the Texas Beach Volleyball community under one comprehensive statewide ranking & rating system and value beach volleyball as a sport, community and the lifestyle that comes with it.
Texas Beach Volleyball Points
Players earn TBV Ranking and Grand Prix points every time they play on the Texas Volleyball Tour. Points are calculated using the following formula:
Division Base Points x Number of Teams Entered = Total Points Earned
1st Place = 100% of Points
2nd Place = 90% of 1st Place
3rd Place = 90 % of 2nd Place
And so on… with each place receiving 90% of the place before it.
DIVISION BASE POINTS
Each division has a base number of points that never changes.
RANKING = total of best 5 point finishes over the past 365 days (regardless of division)
Ranking points will be used to rank players, seed tournaments and used as one indicator of when a player needs to move up to the next division. Ranking points will be calculated on a per-athlete basis rather than a per-team basis, allowing athletes to switch partners freely without penalty.
Ranking points will be used to seed all tournaments except AVP sanctioned Men’s & Women’s Open. AVP sanctioned Men’s & Women’s Open tournaments earn both TBV points and AVP points. These events will be seeded using AVP points due to players from outside of Texas participating.
GRAND PRIX POINTS
GRAND PRIX POINTS = total points earned for each event played within a season (specific to 1 division, but players can play in more than one division and earn points in more than one division)
The Grand Prix points system is a collection of points earned each year over a series of events. Players earn points for each event played in using the TBV formula. Players earn points every time they play and prizes at the end of the season are based on a players total points earned during that season.
Points will be tracked for current Texas divisions and prize money/prizes will be awarded at the end of the season.
GRAND PRIX PRIZES
Prizes money will be awarded at the end of the season. TOTAL PURSE for each division will be determined by the number of events in that division.
JUNIOR GRAND PRIX POINTS
Junior Grand Prix points will be calculated the same as adults. The top 10 players in each division will receive a prize.
TEAM POINT SYSTEM
Earning the Main Draw Bid into the 2019 AVP Hermosa Beach Open: The Texas Beach Volleyball Team Points System will be used for the Open division only and will determine which team wins the main draw bid into the 2019 AVP Hermosa Beach Open in July. This system will track team finishes over a series of events and will allow players to easily determine where they sit as a team in 2019. Team points will be given out after each event. These points are earned by a team so if a player decides to switch partners, they will start over in the Team standing and begin to accumulate points based on their new team finishes. It is beneficial for Open players to commit to playing in all 2019 TVT events with the same partner. TBV & AVP points will also be awarded individually following each event. Team standings will be updated here after each event. A teams top 5 finishes will count towards their team point total.
