Points:

The number of points earned by a team for any match depends on two factors. The result (won, drawn, lost) and the opponent against whom the result was achieved. The higher an opponent’s rating the more points are earned for beating them.

If a team wins a match, they will earn 50 points more than their opponent’s rating.  But if they lose, they will earn 50 points less than their opponent’s rating. Worked numerical examples, including when this rule doesn’t apply, appear in our Frequently Asked Questions.

Rating Period:

It is not meaningful for a team to claim a world ranking if they have only played a small number of matches. As soon as a team has played minimum international test matches over the rating period then they will have earned an official world ranking. If a team has played fewer than the minimum matches, they will still have a rating, but without a corresponding ranking. To have a ranking the team must have played at least 2 games against a rated team. The current minimum number of matches is six.

The following teams (in alphabetical order) currently have a rating in the system and could become ranked once they have played 6 matches:

  • Chinese Taipei
  • India
  • Israel
  • Maldives
  • Malta
  • Pakistan
  • Switzerland
  • Tonga

The next group of teams are full World Netball Members that are eligible to play WN ranked matches but have not yet done so, meaning they don’t have a rating or a ranking. These include:

  • Cote d’Ivoire
  • Bermuda
  • Brunei
  • Malta
  • Philippines

Since its inception in 2007 the WN World Rankings methodology has been reviewed regularly by the WN Board to ensure it remains a robust and reliable ranking system that presents a true reflection of the quality and standing of the performances of international teams and that this system can be used with confidence for qualification purposes.
